KIDS’ CBC GREENLIGHTS SNAPSHOTS A NEW UNSCRIPTED SERIES FOCUSING ON PHOTOGRAPHY
- Casting open for school-aged kids from across Canada
Kids’ CBC has greenlit SNAPSHOTS (6×30), an unscripted live-action series from FORTÉ Entertainment and Headtrip Films. Co-created by executive producers Andrea Gabourie and Mitch Gabourie, SNAPSHOTS is an interactive, hosted competition series and website that engages school-aged children in a competition that uses photography to tell their own stories and share their vision of the world around them.
In each episode, three kids go head-to-head in a series of picture snapping challenges designed to test their creativity, ingenuity and passion. Their best photos will be displayed publicly for photography experts to judge. The companion website cbc.ca/kidscbc2/ will allow children from across Canada to compete in a digital spin-off competition based on challenges from the show.
SNAPSHOTS begins filming in June 2016 and will be broadcast in September 2016.SNAPSHOTS was developed with the assistance of the CMF and The Bell Fund and is a recipient of the Shaw Rocket Fund.
FORTÉ and Headtrip have also just inked a deal with Warner Brothers International to option the format rights to the SNAPSHOTS series in New Zealand.
