About Neshama Entertainment

Neshama Entertainment is a Canadian production company based in Toronto. Formed in 2018 by Arnie Zipursky, in partnership with Los Angeles-based distributor MarVista Entertainment, Neshama sources Canadian creative content and talent including writers, producers, actors, editors, directors, and cinematographers.

Recent titles include Tubi originals “Meet the Killer Parents” and “The Manny,” as well as “Under the Christmas Tree” and “A Chance for Christmas,” both nominated for Best TV Movie at the 2023 Canadian Screen Awards. Neshama’s one-hour drama “The Way Home,” Hallmark’s first original series in seven years, premiered in early 2023 to tremendous success and has already been renewed for a second season. In an effort to expand its catalogue of film properties, Neshama Releasing is actively searching for television movies (MOWs) and indie features for Canadian distribution.
