TORONTO, Dec. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - SliceTM is unleashing its hottest season on record with some of the most highly anticipated reality series of 2013 on the horizon. Today the network released premiere dates and coveted details for The Real Housewives of Vancouver Season Two, Big Brother Canada and the newly announced, Big Brother Canada After Dark, all set to debut in February exclusively on SliceTM.

"SliceTM is embarking on its biggest season to date with two Canadian adaptations of the world's biggest franchises joining our winter slate," said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President of Content, Shaw Media. "The record-breaking success of The Real Housewives of Vancouver's first season and the huge amount of excitement for Big Brother Canada to date reflect viewers' fascination and passion for these series and we can't wait to deliver!"

Premiering February 5th at 10pm ET/PT, The Real Housewives of Vancouver returns for an explosive second season. As the highest rated series in SliceTM's history, the brand new season will follow the drama-prone daily lives of not five but six of Vancouver's most glamorous Housewives. Three new Wives will join Jody Claman, Mary Zilba and Ronnie Negus - shaking up the highly-entertaining and often tumultuous dynamic between these three larger-than-life ladies, and providing new drama, new scandals and new alliances along the way. The identities of the three new Wives will be unveiled in the new year.

The first Canadian installment of the international sensation, Big Brother Canada is slated to premiere on February 27th at 9pm ET/PT. Similar to the hugely popular US format, Big Brother Canada will air three nights a week, on Wednesdays at 9pm ET/PT, Thursdays at 10pm ET/PT and Sundays at 9pm ET/PT, with live eviction episodes on Thursdays. Shaw Media and Insight Productions are currently searching for a diverse group of contestants to live and compete in the Big Brother Canada house. More details on the final 14 will be revealed in the coming months.

Joining its world renowned counterpart, Big Brother After Dark will kick off on February 27th only on SliceTM. Offering viewers a look inside the Big Brother house after the network prime-time cameras have been turned off, Big Brother After Dark will air seven days a week from 2am-5am ET/ 11pm-2am PT. Featuring a live, uncut and uncensored feed directly from the Big Brother house, Big Brother After Dark leaves nothing to the imagination.
