From a media release:
Global is proud to offer a wealth of new and returning Canadian original programming on the schedule this fall. Award-winning newsmagazine series 16×9 will move into a primetime slot on Friday nights while Saturday evenings gain a new documentary series, Close Up. Close Up is a series of one-off POV documentaries that chronicle the extraordinary and unusual world outside our door â€“ remarkable people on the outskirts of what is deemed normal, hidden worlds, personal obsessions and unique subcultures.
Also on the originals slate is the much anticipated 2012 Canadaâ€™s Walk of Fame Awards which will be broadcast this fall from Torontoâ€™s historic Elgin Theatre. The annual star-studded gala event will feature top tier talents being honoured by their colleagues with inspirational performances and heartfelt words. A list of inductees will be announced in the coming weeks.
Reality series Recipe to Riches is back with a new crop of Canadian home cooks competing to have their original recipes become a Presidentâ€™s Choice product.
Finally, Bomb Girls, the drama profiling the Canadian women who risked everything to build bombs for the Allied forces fighting on the European front, returns with all-new episodes in 2013. Shot on location in Toronto, Bomb Girls stars Meg Tilly (Caprica), Jodi Balfour (Supernatural), Charlotte Hegele (Murdoch Mysteries) and Ali Liebert (Health Nutz).
