From the Classic Anne of Green Gables to its Emmy award-winning series, Road to Avonlea, Sullivan's productions have garnered numerous awards, achieved record-breaking ratings and conquered markets around the world.

The editorial control of the show rests in Halifax and Montreal, which is an improvement over the Road to Avonlea series which barely even shot second unit material in P.E.I., and yet one can't help thinking the Island's industry has exchanged one set of remote-controlled colonial masters for another.
Upcoming Sullivan projects include "An Avonlea Christmas," a two-hour telefilm featuring the characters from "Road to Avonlea," telefilm "Passion Play" and "Anne on lee," a skating special based on "Anne of Green Gables."

The career of Jackie Burroughs runs the gamut on-screen from the multi-Gemini-winning role of the prime and proper Aunt Hattie in the long-running Road to Avonlea to the drug-addled tourist "taking a vacation from feminism" in A Winter Tan, for which she won a Genie in 1989.
