W NETWORK PROGRAMMING HIGHLIGHTS:
LOVE IT OR LIST IT VANCOUVER (NEW EPISODES)
New episodes: Monday, September 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT (60 minutes)
Love It or List It Vancouver showcases families in B.C.'s largest metropolitan city who are
struggling with homes that no longer suit their needs. It's up to
designer Jillian Harris to put a stop to the wandering eyes of our homeowners, armed with their
list of "must-haves to love it" and a design she hopes will persuade
them to stay. Meanwhile, realtor Todd Talbot is determined to get homeowners to relocate by taking their list of
"must-haves to list it" and finding them new digs. Every episode will
take viewers on an emotional rollercoaster as Jillian and Todd battle
it out for the homeowners' allegiance. With renovation there are always
setbacks and sometimes it means the homeowners must lose one of their
"must- haves" on their list to stay. On the realtor's end, finding
everything the homeowners want in their dream home can be more
difficult than originally anticipated. The stakes are high as the
homeowners weigh in on the financial and emotional decisions of buying
a new home or staying in the renovated one. Love It or List It Vancouver is produced by Big Coat Productions in association with W Network. For

covert disguise and a convincing back story. Working alongside their
employees, each "boss" takes an often emotional journey, discovering
the effects their decisions have on others, the perception of the
company, and who the unsung heroes of their workforce are. Most
importantly, they learn how to apply what they have gained from the
experience - both for their company and for themselves. The first
episode in September will feature Food Banks Canada which feeds nearly a million struggling Canadians a month. Viewers can
tune-in to see how the company will cope with the growing number of
families on the breadline. For more information about the series,
