TORONTO, Nov. 4 /CNW/ - From the beaches of Costa Rica to the bustling streets of Manhattan, Entertainment Tonight Canada is pulling out all the stops with an unparalleled lineup of exclusives rolling out in the weeks to come.

The action starts this Friday, November 6 when ET Canada is the only entertainment news show to go behind the scenes for the always stylish Holt Renfrew Holiday Window Unveiling Event. ET Canada's Rick Campanelli and Kim D'Eon host the outdoor celebration as the season's most festive and fashionable window display is revealed to a crowd of awaiting Torontonians. The crowning point of the annual fete will be a performance by Tony and Emmy Award-winning actress and singer, Kristin Chenoweth, plus a special appearance by Dylan Lauren, founder of Dylan's Candy Bar and daughter of the iconic fashion designer Ralph Lauren.

Next, Rosey Edeh heads south of the border to Mexico for ET Canada's 'Food Fiesta', a spicy week-long culinary adventure featuring five of Food Network's most talented Canadian chefs including Roger Mooking ("Everyday Exotic"), Anthony Sedlak ("The Main"), Nadia G ("Bitchin' Kitchen"), Chuck Hughes ("Chuck's Day Off") and David Adjey ("Restaurant Makeover"). Fans can tune in on Monday, November 16 to watch these celebrity chefs turn up the heat as they go head to head in the kitchen and cook their way through daily challenges while living it up on the Mayan Riviera.

The following week, Rick Campanelli documents his travels to Cambodia on behalf of World Vision. Navigating through local villages, Rick's visit will pull back the curtain and raise awareness about the challenges and changes occurring within the poverty-stricken country. A long-time supporter of the advocacy organization, Rick follows in the footsteps of other notable Canadians committed to World Vision including Alex Trebek and Wayne Gretzky.

Across the pond in the English countryside, Rosey Edeh travels to the top secret set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to sit down with the cast of famous wizards. Rosey finds out what fans can expect from the new movie and what life behind the scenes of the Harry Potter franchise is really like. ET Canada reveals all the details in celebration of the highly anticipated DVD release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince starting Wednesday, December 2.

Then it's off to the city that never sleeps as Roz Weston goes backstage in New York City at the Victoria Secret Fashion Show. ET Canada is the only Canadian entertainment news show at the coveted runway event and will offer a sneak peek of this season's sexy get-ups and the top models who wear them. Global will broadcast the Fashion Show on Tuesday, December 1 - 10pm ET/PT and ET Canada will air their exclusive coverage including an interview with this year's special musical guest, Black Eyed Peas on Wednesday, December 2.

And finally, ET Canada is celebrating a milestone with Canadian music's super couple, Chantal Kreviazuk and Our Lady Peace front man Raine Maida, as they renew their marriage vows on the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica. Commemorating their 10-year anniversary, active humanitarians and recipients of the 2009 Tiffany Mark Award, Chantal and Raine invite their friends and family to the 'Happiest Country on Earth' to help them honour this joyous occasion. Rick Campanelli is on the guest list and captures all the emotion from the big day, plus a little fun in the sun too. From the dress to the vows, ET Canada has the scoop starting Monday, December 7.

ET Canada airs weeknights at 7pm ET/7:30pm PT on Global and 11pm ET/8pm PT on SLICE(TM). To catch up on these special episodes and all the latest in entertainment news, please visit www.etcanada.com.
