TORONTO, Aug. 20, 2019 /CNW/ - Chris and Alex are tackling their biggest projects yet! Accessible Media Inc. (AMI) announced that Season three of Eyes for the Job, the 13-part television series starring Chris Judge and Alex Haider, premieres Tuesday, September 10, at 8 p.m. Eastern on AMI-tv.
Produced by Clerisy Entertainment, Eyes for the Job is set in Halifax and features Nova Scotian co-hosts Chris Judge and Alex Haider. Chris, who is blind, is a lifelong handyman and do-it-yourself enthusiast. Joining him once again is Alex, who couples her creativity and enthusiasm with social media and outreach know-how.
Season three marks changes at the community workshop. Alex takes control of many projects, giving Chris even more time to tell jokes, practice his singing and even take a selfie or two. They also challenge themselves—and each other—with bigger projects, inviting friends and contributors to help them convert an old dresser into a change table, construct an apple press, and put their personal touches on a pair of custom baseball bats. Eyes for the Job becomes a family affair as Chris' brother, Darren, stops by to help his sibling build a doghouse.
"Chris and Alex have truly connected with our audience," says John Melville, Vice-President, Programming and Production, AMI-tv. "We know fans will love not only the DIY projects the two tackle in Season three but the friendship that has developed between them."
"Chris and Alex set out to take the community workshop, the projects and the fun to the next level in Season three," says Dale Stevens, Producer for Clerisy Entertainment. "That is exactly what they did, inviting the biggest characters to the workshop, building new and fascinating things, and taking us on interesting journeys. They explore the community like never before."
In keeping with AMI's mandate of making accessible media for all Canadians, Season three of Eyes for the Job features Integrated Described Video (IDV): Chris and Alex describe their actions and surroundings during filming to make the program accessible to individuals who are blind or partially sighted.
