TORONTO, Aug. 17 /CNW/ - Canwest announced today its line-up of Canadian
lifestyle programming on deck for winter 2010. Continuing to be an industry
leader and commissioning strong, standard-setting lifestyle content in Canada,
Canwest is launching an enviable list of brand new, timely series and new
seasons of Canadian favourites across its specialty lifestyle channels: Food
Network, HGTV and Slice(TM).
Popular lifestyle channel Food Network is currently in production on a
collection of original entertaining programming for its winter schedule
including: a brand new series featuring renowned Chef, Lynn Crawford, who
trades in her chef's whites for blue jeans and gumboots as she embarks on a
cross-country culinary adventure; Bitchin' Kitchen, a deliciously wild cooking
show for a new generation of foodies; and a Canadian culinary challenge based
series hosted by Kevin Brauch (Thirsty Traveler, Iron Chef America)
tentatively titled Chef Off. These new series are launching amongst the
highest quality returning series: The Heat III, Glutton For Punishment IV and
Wild Chef II.
This winter HGTV viewers are invited into the homes of celebrity
contractors and designers who showcase their craftsmanship and design
expertise in their own spaces. Contractor Bryan Baeumler (Disaster DIY) has a
brand new series, House of Bryan, in which he is building the house of his
dreams to accommodate his and wife Sarah's hopes of expanding their family.
Sarah Richardson welcomes HGTV viewers into a new home as she returns with a
third season of her top-rated series Sarah's House. Other notable returning
series slated to launch during the winter season include Home To Flip II and
Marriage Under Construction III.
Slice(TM) maintains its commitment to guilty pleasure programming with
the launch of Love Inc. The brand new series follows the dramatic highs and
lows of dating experts Annabelle and Justin, newlyweds who face the challenges
of running a growing singles-event empire while trying to build a "normal"
marriage. New seasons of Canadian favourites including At The End Of My Leash
VI and Party Mamas III add further flare to the 2010 Winter schedule.
"The development of top-quality Canadian production has always been a
priority across our lifestyle channels," says Karen Gelbart, SVP Content,
Lifestyle Channels. "We strive to provide viewers with only the strongest in
themed programming, and the outstanding variety of timely, relevant content
across Food Network, HGTV and Slice(TM) is a testament to that commitment."
