From a media release:
Corus Entertainment’s W Network announced today that it is commissioning The Bachelorette Canada (11×90/1×60). The series from Good Human Productions Inc. is the first ever Canadian version of the perennially successful The Bachelorette franchise from Warner Horizon Television that originated on ABC in the U.S. The Bachelorette Canada commences casting for potential bachelors on Wednesday, November 18, and interested applicants can apply online or nominate someone they know here or by visiting the casting calls across Canada in January 2016. Canada’s first ever Bachelorette will be announced in the coming months and The Bachelorette Canada will premiere next fall on W Network.
Canadians that nominate someone they know as a bachelor will be entered into W Network’s online contest for a chance to win an all-expense paid trip for 2 to Vancouver and VIP passes to the live tapings of The Bachelorette Canada: The Men Tell All and The Bachelorette Canada: After The Final Rose specials. Nominate someone you know here.
In the Canadian version of this smash-hit reality series, Canada’s most eligible bachelorette is in search of the man of her dreams – and hopefully her groom-to-be. The Canadian Bachelorette will search for love as 20 men do whatever it takes to win her heart. The male suitors compete for the Bachelorette’s affection via individual and group dates involving local and far-flung romantic encounters and adventures. As the Bachelorette narrows the field and the number of men dwindles, romance and tensions will rise. Ultimately, she will choose the one man with whom she wants to spend the rest of her life.
The Bachelorette Canada is produced by Good Human Productions Inc. From Good Human Productions, Claire Freehand serves as Executive Producer and Keely Booth is Showrunner. For Corus Entertainment, John MacDonald is the Executive Vice President of Television and Head of Women’s and Family Television and Maria Farano is Director of Original Programming for Women’s and Family Television. The series is based on the U.S. format created by Mike Fleiss and produced by Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Sales of the format are handled by Warner Bros. International Television Production.
