Two of the most respected musicians in the world will collaborate on an extraordinary new television series, it was announced today.

Spectacle: Elvis Costello with… will be hosted by its namesake and produced in conjunction with Sir Elton John’s Rocket Pictures. Elton John will be one of the program’s Executive Producers. Conceived and developed in Canada, the Canada/United Kingdom co-production will start shooting soon for broadcast later this year on CTV in Canada, Channel 4 in the UK and Sundance Channel in the US. FremantleMedia Enterprises will handle sales of the show to the rest of the world.

Designed to provide a forum for in-depth discussion and performance with the most interesting and influential artists and personalities of our time, the show fuses the best of talk and music television.

Explaining his approach to the program, Elvis Costello said, “I’m not interested in extracting some dark secret. I’d rather hear about a bright secret, a deep love or a curiosity that might be otherwise obscured by fame. This is a wonderful opportunity to talk in complete thoughts about music, movies, art or even vaudeville, then frame it with unique and illustrative performances.”

“Elvis Costello is the foremost expert on popular music,” added Executive Producer Sir Elton John. “I thought it would be sensational to use his knowledge and intelligence to explore the artistry of musicians and other fascinating people involved in making great music, as well as true music aficionados.”

“The extraordinarily versatile Elvis Costello and the legendary Elton John have joined forces to bring viewers an unprecedented window into the world of music,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “Spectacle will be spectacular – providing a platform for the most acclaimed artists of our time to discuss and demonstrate their craft in a unique setting.”

Co-produced by Toronto’s reinvention entertainment, SpyBox Pictures and Prospero Pictures, along with London-based Rocket Pictures, Spectacle: Elvis Costello with… promises to be an unpredictable and unprecedented television experience. The series of 13 one-hour programs will feature everything from intimate one-on-ones with legendary performers and notable newcomers to thematic panel discussions.

Spectacle will also feature a variety of performance elements including unique collaborations, acoustic and impromptu “illustrative” demonstrations of the creative process, and some original interpretations of others’ songs by Costello.

The program’s eclecticism and depth reflect its uniquely qualified host. Elvis Costello is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee; a Grammy and Ivor Novello Award-winning (and Oscar-nominated) songwriter and performer comfortable in almost every genre imaginable; a musicologist of formidable breadth and knowledge; a contributor to Vanity Fair magazine; and a noted wit whose stint as guest host on The Late Show with David Letterman won rave reviews.

Consistent with Sir Elton John’s long-standing commitment to philanthropy and music, the series producers have struck an exciting association with the (Product) RED (www.joinred.com) campaign created to raise awareness and money for the Global Fund (www.theglobalfund.org) to fight AIDS in Africa. Select program excerpts and performances will be distributed in a variety of new media and conventional platforms, with a portion of the profits directed to the Global Fund.

CTV announced today that Leah Miller has been named the host of CTV’s newest original series, So You Think You Can Dance Canada. Currently host of the MuchMusic series MuchOnDemand, Miller’s first assignment is to join the So You Think You Can Dance Canada cross-country audition tour, waltzing into Vancouver on Monday, April 7. Miller will be on the entire audition road trip making stops in Halifax (May 5), Calgary (May 12), Montreal (May 27) and her hometown of Toronto (June 10). For up-to-date audition information, visit the series’ official website, dance.ctv.ca. Additional cast members will be announced soon.

As the host of So You Think You Can Dance Canada (SYTYCD Canada), Miller will be the eyes and ears of Canadian viewers at each stop on the audition tour. Chatting with competitors and the judges, she will have the inside scoop on Canada’s dancing talent from across the country. Once the series debuts this fall on CTV, Miller will introduce the finalists and interact with the competitors and judges in her role as host of the live episodes.

“Leah’s vibrant charm, previous hosting experience and knowledge of dance makes her an ideal host for this exciting new series,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “Fun, smart and quick on her feet, viewers and competitors will fall in love with her.”

“I cried my eyes out when I found out – I am ecstatic!” said Miller. “I have such respect for what dancers are capable of and I am a huge fan of the format. Hosting the homegrown edition of So You Think You Can Dance is such a privilege for me.”

From host of MuchOnDemand to the new host of SYTYCD Canada, Miller has come a long way from the audition that landed her a job with Canada’s flagship music station, MuchMusic. As a three time host of the MuchMusic Video Awards and co-host of MuchOnDemand, Miller has chatted with some of the hottest stars and musical acts around, including Gwen Stefani, Halle Berry, Kanye West, Avril Lavigne, Rihanna, Matthew McConaughey, Fergie, Good Charlotte

and many more. She recently hosted Live@Much specials featuring Hedley, The Killers, The All-American Rejects and Hilary Duff.

A music and dance aficionado, Miller tapped into the dance world at a young age when she was enrolled in baby ballet class. Miller won the title of “Miss Junior Dance of Canada” when she was 13 and danced competitively until the age of 16. That experience gives her first hand knowledge of the hard work and dedication it takes to become a competitive dancer. Miller has huge respect for dancers at the level the series demands. Her passion for the fine arts and previous hosting and interviewing experience prepares her for this exciting leap into her latest gig.
