With summer schedules already in place, it’s time for Canwest to unleash what they’re offering their viewers on Global Television and E! networks this fall.
Of course the unveiling of this new lineup wouldn’t be the same without rolling out the red carpet for some of Global’s favourite stars at Toronto’s Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre yesterday.
Former Bachelor Dr. Travis Stork was on hand to talk about his new show coming this fall to Global titled The Doctors.
The Colorado-based ER physician is bringing his own series to daytime — with practical advice, the latest information and a regular panel of top medical talent from all areas of expertise.
“We’re committed to providing the best in television entertainment, and this year proves no exception,” said Kathy Dore, President of Canwest Broadcasting. “With the amazing new array of new and returning prime-time offerings scheduled across Global and E!, we’ll engage viewers and advertisers with top notch programming while leveraging opportunities across multimedia platforms.”
Mike Holmes of Holmes On Homes announced details of his latest project to the press.
In a two-hour special documentary, Make It Right: New Orleans, Holmes and his crew will rebuild hope in the Lower 9th Quarter of New Orleans, the area worst hit when the levee broke in August 2005. They will be constructing one of five prototype homes with the Make It Right Foundation, a charitable organization launched by actor Brad Pitt, to be finished in time for the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
Other stars present at the gala event included Justin Bruening who will star in the new Knight Rider series, Metro columnists Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan from Home Heist, The Guard’s Steve Bacic, ‘da Kink In My Hair’s Ngozi Paul, and Survivor: Fans vs. Favourites Oscar “Ozzy” Lusth, James Clement and million-dollar winner Parvati Shallow.
A total of 13 new series will be added to the Global and E! lineups including 90210, The Doctors, Knight Rider and My Own Worst Enemy.
Returning fan favourites include Heroes, The Office, The Biggest loser, How I Met Your Mother, Survivor and House.
