From a media release:
CBCÂ today announced that new 8×30 docu-seriesÂ KEEPING CANADA SAFEÂ will premiere with back-to-back episodes onÂ Thursday, March 16 at 9 p.m.Â (9:30 NT) on CBC. Filmed over a single 48-hour period,Â KEEPING CANADA SAFEÂ provides an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at the people and emergency services tasked with protecting Canadians. Produced byÂ Force Four EntertainmentÂ in association with CBC, the series lifts the veil and explores what it means to be safe in a rapidly changing world, while showcasing the intimate and dramatic stories of Canadaâ€™s everyday heroes who face tremendous challenges and put their lives at risk to keep Canadians safe. Two back-to-back episodes will air Thursdays at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) on CBC.
In each episode ofÂ KEEPING CANADA SAFE, viewers will be privy to a dramatic, day-in-the-life snapshot of emergency services across the country including police, firefighters, airport security, Canadian Forces, CSIS agents, grassroots volunteers and more. Over two days in September 2016, 60 camera crews descended across Canadaâ€™s streets, airspace, parks and homes to capture the action-packed and inspiring stories of those working to protect the country, both within and outside its borders. With unparalleled access, more than 47 organizations were filmed at work in 34 different cities across 10 provinces and two territories to create this thorough and immersive program.
Based on the format from ITV,Â KEEPING CANADA SAFEÂ is a follow up to 2015â€™sÂ KEEPING CANADA ALIVE.
