In the news: Awards, Rumours

From Jim Bawden of the Toronto Star:

  • Hot box: Television to talk about
    Two Emmys: Congrats to two Canadian-made animated TV series, which won Emmys at the 34th Annual Creative Arts & Entertainment Awards held June 14 in Los Angeles. Arthur, produced by Cookie Jar Entertainment (and Boston’s WGBH), won Best Children’s Animated Program while Nelvana Films’ The Backyardigans tied for Best Animation.
    Back Again: It was to be the “can’t fail” TV project of last season: an English-language version of the Quebec TV hit Rumeurs. Rumours, executive-produced by Citytv founding father Moses Znaimer, would star Jennifer Dale, Amy Price-Francis, David Haydn-Jones. But nobody watched and the sitcom was soon off the CBC grid. It has resurfaced Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. as CBC runs off unused episodes.”

In the news: Rumours reruns return to CBC

Ann Marie McQueen of Sun Media interviews Allison Graham:

  • ‘Rumours’ actress happiest at home
    “The English-language version of the popular French series — which is set at a Toronto-based women’s gossip and lifestyle magazine and stars Jennifer Dale and David Haydn-Jones — is set Tuesday to begin airing daily at 7:30 p.m. The network is giving the first season a second chance after the series failed to catch fire when nine episodes aired last year.”

In the news: CBC renewals, cancellations

From Tod Maffin at Inside the CBC:

  • Terrorism drama among list of new CBC TV shows; Venture and Opening Night cancelled
    “Shows coming back to air include: Little Mosque on the Prairie, Test the Nation, Canada’s Next Great Prime Minister, The National (duh), Marketplace, This Hour Has 22 Minutes, The Rick Mercer Report, The Royal Canadian Air Farce, Dragons’ Den. Curiously absent from the list of returning shows is Intelligence, but a CBC spokesperson tells me it’s not an omen — talks with the independent producer are still continuing.”
