From a media release:

As part of Corus Entertainment’s content strategy, the company announced today a slate of new, original Corus-owned series currently in development for 2014/15. These projects build on the company’s existing roster of original, unscripted and owned series, including Cash Mob and Mississippi Snake Grabbers, which premieres spring 2015 on CMT (Canada).

Corus’ new reality-based series are being developed for the company’s women and family networks, namely, W Network, CMT, OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network (Canada), CosmoTV and ABC Spark, with a number of Canada’s leading production companies, including Temple Street Productions, Tricon Films & Television and Our House Media.

In Production
Mississippi Snake Grabbers (CMT/Dockside Productions) – Follows the southern men of GrabUone Outfitters, who take groups of thrill seekers into the bayou for adrenaline-inducing snake hunting expeditions.

In development for 2014/15
Restaurant Revolution (Temple Street) – An hour long, food competition series that each week pits three different Chefs and Sous Chefs in a three-course meal cook off. Celebrity or guest diners will watch the cooking action in a dining room set with a revolving kitchen. The diners are the judges and decide the winner by paying however much they think each meal is worth.

Mad House (Tricon) – Ten couples offer up their own homes to enter a renovation game that could change their lives forever. In this competition, the last team standing will live their dream – total mortgage freedom.

Born in a Barn (Our House Media) – Each episode of this inspiring series will feature two sets of home owners who have gambled big on converting farm buildings, churches schoolhouses, and other unique rural structures into dream homes.

A Penthouse View (Our House Media) – Lavish and highly aspirational, this half hour format lets viewers follow one realtor and one buyer on the hunt to buy the perfect luxury penthouse property.

More House for your Buck (Our House Media) – In this series, couples trade up their current house for the home of their dreams – at no extra cost. Our dynamic realtor and contractor team will show them how to buy a new property and transform it into the perfect home – all for the money they get for their existing home.

  1. Yawn. I watch almost no reality tv save for when my other half is watching Timber Kings, Swamp People, Gold Rush, Mountain Men, etc. and I just happen to be in the room (in those instances I only half watch to make him happy while I putter away on my cellphone). The only reality tv show I’ll watch on my own is Masterchef in all its incarnations. As for the kids, my daughter constantly rewatches the 7 episodes of Cooked (a YTV show) that I have saved on the DVR.
