No interview this week but we have lots of news-like items to share. The Borgias has been renewed for a second season by US broadcaster Showtime, making it very likely Bravo will follow here in Canada. So don’t fret: we’ll see more of this slice of Canadian history on our TV screens.
CBC has announced a new dramatic series for winter 2012 called Arctic Air, and that’s pretty much all the media release says about it. Poor rich Brett Wilson wasn’t unemployed for long – he went from Dragons’ Den to Slice’s new Risky Business. Befriend and Betray airs on Showcase April 30. We slightly mock the GREAT NEWS that a Canadian writer has been hired on a Canadian show: Annmarie Morais joins Haven for the rest of season two.
Which leads Diane into a bit of a rant about the hocus pocus of CanCon, where content and the truth is spread to the breaking point.
