CBC teams with marblemedia for Take Sides

From a media release:

CBC and The Gurin Company are pleased to announce a development deal with award-winning Canadian content creator marblemedia for the ground-breaking factualentertainment format series Take Sides.

The concept is the first series to come out of the creative collaboration deal signed between the CBC and The Gurin Company, a global independent format and production house. marblemedia is attached to develop and produce a 360 viewing experience, which promises an entertaining weekly live studio broadcast with integratedsocial media and simultaneous digital participation for the audience at home.

Every week, Take Sides will put a hot button topic “on trial,” with a team of comedic performers, improv actors and musical guests, who face-off in a classic courtroom structure. The topic on trial will be examined through a variety of methods including monologues, sketches, musical numbers, video shorts and other means that illustrate the “pros and cons” of the issue. Through real time audience involvement, a verdict is reached by Canadian audiences, who ultimately “take a side.”
