TORONTO, Oct. 16, 2013 /CNW/ - Accessible Media Inc. (AMI) revealed
today details surrounding a new, innovative food show that is heading
into production and will showcase two renowned chefs, one of whom is
Four Senses is a unique food show produced by AMI in conjunction with Varner
Productions Limited that will feature two prominent stars from the
reality cooking show world. MasterChef USA winner Christine Ha and
winner of Top Chef Canada 2012, Carl Heindrich team up to host this
13-episode cooking show with an accessibility twist. Each 30-minute
show will feature a cooking segment as well as interviews with
celebrity guests, discussions related to eye disease, and accessibility
tips and tools for independence in the kitchen.
"This is an exciting venture for AMI and we are thrilled to collaborate
with two veteran Canadian companies, Varner Productions Limited and
Descriptive Video (DV) Works," explains AMI-tv Director of Programming,
Brian Perdue. "Our mandate at AMI is to ensure that our programming is
accessible to our core audience. All of our programming airs with
described video and closed captioning, however, what is particularly
interesting about Four Senses is that we will be embedding all of the description right into the show
as we shoot, eliminating the need to add description in
post-production. This truly is an innovative approach to accessibility
that AMI has been honing over the last number of years with some of our
other original programming."
A number of high profile chefs and guests have been lined up for each
episode of Four Senses, which begins production in Toronto on Monday, October 21st.
Four Senses producer Anne-Marie Varner was thrilled with the positive response from
the food community. "The support and enthusiasm was overwhelming.
Without giving away too much, we are thrilled with the lineup of
celebrity chefs and guests we have confirmed including Anna Olson and
Christine Cushing, to name just a few. Four Senses will offer something for people with various degrees of cooking
interest and expertise."
Four Senses will air on AMI in January, 2014. Check your local provider or visit
