June 2008

An all-new season of Project Runway Canada makes its Global Television debut this coming January 2009.

Canwest confirmed today the return of Supermodel Iman as Host of Project Runway Canada.

An internationally-recognized glamour and style icon, Iman brings back her keen sense of fashion and savvy business know-how to guide a brand new roster of budding Canadian designers. Along with series mentor, Brian Bailey and a panel of industry experts, Iman leads the team on its way to give one exceptionally talented designer the opportunity of a lifetime.

“Iman is equally blessed with natural elegance, stunning beauty, sharp wit and intelligence – the perfect combination for Project Runway Canada,” said Karen Gelbart, SVP, Lifestyle Content, Canwest Broadcasting. “For these reasons and so many more, we’re extremely excited to have her back as the series Host, providing our designers and viewers with a unique insight into the world of fashion that only she can offer.”

This season, the rigorous application process did nothing to discourage an impressive number of talented designers from sending in their submissions. As a result, Project Runway Canada is guaranteed to feature the most ambitious and creative fashionistas ready to share their designs with fans nationwide.

“Once again, we are blown away by the sheer caliber of emerging fashion designers in this country,” says John Brunton, Executive Producer. “We are thrilled to offer a platform for such gifted artists to showcase their designs.”

Explosive scenarios, defused in a flash! Follow the exploits of a highly-skilled tactical team trained to get inside the heads of the most dangerous suspects, in the world premiere of the new CTV Original Series Flashpoint, airing Fridays at 10 p.m. ET, beginning July 11 on CTV and CTV HD East/West (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times). Flashpoint will also be available on demand on iTunes and the CTV Video Player at CTV.ca following its television broadcast.

Picked up by CBS for “reverse simulcast” with CTV, Flashpoint is a drama which depicts the emotional journey into the tough, risk-filled lives of a group of cops in Toronto’s Strategic Response Unit (SRU), trained to rescue hostages, bust gangs, defuse bombs, climb the sides of buildings and talk down suicidal teens. Set proudly in Toronto, the 13-part series will become the first Canadian series since CTV’s Due South to air in network primetime in both Canada and the U.S. Flashpoint continues production in Toronto until August 25, 2008.

“Flashpoint is an edge-of-your-seat drama full of excitement, with well-written, beautifully performed characters and a sleek look,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “We’re looking forward to sharing this compelling series with a North American audience.”

Starring Enrico Colantoni (Veronica Mars), Hugh Dillon (Durham County), Amy Jo Johnson (Felicity) and David Paetkau (Whistler), Flashpoint follows a unique group of cops that can do what ordinary police officers can’t. Members of a highly-skilled SWAT team (inspired by Toronto’s Emergency Task Force), they’re trained in negotiating, profiling and getting inside the subject’s head at the very emotional breaking point (the “flashpoint”) that triggered the crisis. They’ll do whatever it takes to defuse the situation to try to save lives – all in a day’s work.

It takes years on the street, intense physical conditioning and elite marksmanship to make it in the SRU. They handle state-of-the art equipment – sniper rifles, snake-cameras, robots, flash-bangs, night vision and Tasers. But beyond all of the cool gadgetry, the most important weapon in their arsenal is human intuition, a gift for words and an ability to read emotion.

“We have produced a high-adrenaline drama series that will take viewers on an emotional journey while keeping them on the edge of their seats,” said Executive Producers Anne-Marie La Traverse and Bill Mustos. “We’re thrilled that Flashpoint will soon be seen across North America and beyond.”

Flashpoint stars an impressive list of talent, including Enrico Colantoni as Gregory Parker, the team sergeant and head negotiator; Hugh Dillon as Ed Lane, team leader and lead sniper; Amy Jo Johnson as Julianna “Jules” Callaghan, sniper and rappelling expert; David Paetkau as Sam Braddock, the newest sniper on the team; Michael Cram (Stargate: Atlantis) as Kevin “Wordy” Wordsworth, who specializes in close quarter combat; Sergio Di Zio (Just Buried) as Mike “Spike” Scarlatti, explosives and tactical toys expert; Mark Taylor (Doomstown) as Lewis “Lou” Young, specializing in less lethal solutions; and Ruth Marshall (Degrassi: The Next Generation) as Dr. Amanda Luria, the forensic psychologist.

Each episode of Flashpoint will be made available on demand on The CTV Broadband Network at CTV.ca following its television broadcast on Saturdays beginning July 12 at 9 a.m. ET. Episodes will also be made available the day after broadcast from the iTunes Store in Canada. Flashpoint joins other original CTV programs on iTunes including Corner Gas, Degrassi: The Next Generation, Instant Star and Robson Arms.

In the series premiere “Scorpio” (Friday, July 11 at 10 p.m. ET), Ed Lane’s the best sniper and the toughest cop on SRU Team One. So when an enraged gunman takes a hostage in a public square at rush hour, it’s Ed who ends up in position to take the lethal shot from a nearby rooftop. Parker struggles to pacify the volatile gunman, but the situation escalates when it looks like he’s about to kill again.

In the second episode entitled “First in Line” (Friday, July 18 at 10 p.m. ET), Jack Swanson’s (Henry Czerny; Mayerthorpe, The Tudors) teenaged daughter desperately needs a heart transplant to survive. When he is told that a heart is finally available, he races his girl to the hospital, only to find the heart’s been allocated to someone else – a bureaucratic screw-up that could cost his daughter her life. Distraught, Jack turns a policeman’s gun on a surgical team, forcing Ed and Jules to face the chilling possibility of a lethal solution.

Last week the Top 24 gave a showcase that was so good that the producers have decided to share it with us.

Tonight’s elimination show is going to be a celebration of music.

Lindsay Robins, Shaun Francisco, Martin Kerr & Paul Clifford sing Creedence Clearwater Revival - Chronicle: 20 Greatest Hits - Have You Ever Seen the Rain? Have You Ever Seen The Rain?

Lindsay Barr and Adam Castelli sing Wilson Pickett - The Essentials: Wilson Pickett - In the Midnight Hour In the Midnight Hour.

Heading home tonight in a fairly painless and not drawn out elimination sees Tetiana Ostapowych, Lindsay Barr, Lindsay Robins and Shaun Francisco being told they’re the first ones being cut.

Ordinary people who are extraordinary dancers will mambo and jive for cash and a coveted title in the biggest dance party of the summer, Dance Machine, airing Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on “A” beginning June 27.

Hosted by popular entertainment news correspondent Jason Kennedy, Dance Machine is full of outrageous pairings, including a 70-year-old grandmother who faces off against a 25-year-old gravedigger to the tune of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”.

Each week, six people from all walks of life will try to out-dance each other in a series of one-on-one competitions set to the most popular songs of all time.

Throughout the night, contestants will be eliminated by voters in the studio audience. By the end of the evening, just two finalists will be left to challenge each other for the honour of being crowned that night’s Dance Machine – and to take home the $100,000 cash prize.

Dance Machine

The following six competitors face off in the premiere episode of Dance Machine:

* Elvis Tognia, 31, a cashier from Cameroon, Africa
* Michelle Garcia, 28, a fashion designer from Inglewood, CA

* Jeff Kelly, 23, a mixed martial arts competitor from Las Vegas
* Sandra Purpuro, 38, a student from Clifton, NJ
* Dan Nier, 33, a physical education teacher from Rochester, NY

Last night was an average start to the countdown to the Top 10 of Canadian Idol 2008. Tonight, the final 12 of the Top 24 get their chance to take to the stage and impress us for their vote.

It was a bit of a retro night last night. How will everyone go tonight? Let’s recap what happened.

Jesse Cottam
Billy Idol - Billy Idol: Greatest Hits - Rebel Yell Rebel Yell
1-866-943-6501

I thought that was a pretty energetic start to the show. It was a fun performance despite Zack thinking it was the wrong song. I’d definitely say it was a vote winner.

Mark Day
Heart - Heart: Greatest Hits - 1985-1995 - Alone Alone
1-866-943-6502

Mark Day has to be the most unlikely of Idols but there really were some cool things in that performance. He’s got potential to really grow but I’m not sure he’s the 2008 Canadian Idol.

Jessica Sheppard
Oleta Adams - Circle of One - Get Here Get Here
1-866-943-6503

It was a little boring for me. She’s got a good voice but it was just a very safe song choice for me and didn’t really show anything to convince me she’s Top 10 material.

Shaun Francisco
Coldplay - Parachutes - Yellow Yellow
1-866-943-6504

Boring. Imitation. Not Original. Next.

Lindsay Robins
Tina Turner - Tina Turner: The Collected Recordings - River Deep, Mountain High River Deep, Mountain High
1-866-943-6505

Wow! The first performance that has really stood out. Lindsay just rocked that stage and shows how seasoned she is as a performed.

Omar Lunan
Sting - ...All This Time - Every Breath You Take Every Breath You Take
1-866-943-6506

I quite liked this song on Omar. However, as much as I liked his phrasing, I was sometimes left wondering if it sounded a little too affected and that perhaps it could have been a little better if parts of it were closer to the original melody. It was verging on over-trilling a Mariah Carey song.

Marie-Pierre Bellerose
Amy Winehouse - Back to Black - You Know I'm No Good I’m No Good
1-866-943-6507

The song was perfect for Marie-Pierre. It was No Good!

Sebastian Pigott
Amanda Marshall - Amanda Marshall - Dark Horse Dark Horse
1-866-943-6508

I think this competition is going to be hard for Sebastian to be standing in his brothers shadow. He’s a better performer than he is a singer.

Theo Tams
OneRepublic - Dreaming Out Loud - Apologize Apologize
1-866-943-6509

I quite liked the arrangement that Theo had put on that song. Playing the piano, Theo looked like a real star.

Amberly Thiessen
Norah Jones - Feels Like Home - What Am I to You What Am I to You
1-866-943-6510

That was a very pleasant performance from a very pleasant performer. Great song choice and vulnerability but it will be interesting to see where she takes things as the weeks progress.

Adam Castelli
Ray Charles - Ray Charles - Mess Around Mess Around
1-866-943-6511

Nice to have some Ray Charles on the show tonight and nice to see some cool coming to the stage with a pretty lively performance.

Katelyn Dawn
Jeff Buckley - Grace - Hallelujah Hallelujah
1-866-943-6512

I really like this. It’s very reminiscent of Leah Nash from Sixpence None the Richer.

Don’t Forget to Vote!

Greek on CTV

Frats, sororities, back-stabbing and hazing…CTV is going Greek and what a rush it will be! The hit first season of Greek, which debuted on ABC Family in the U.S. last year, heats up CTV’s summer schedule Fridays at 9 p.m. ET, beginning July 4 (visit CTV.ca to confirm local broadcast times). The 10-part series focuses on college life, the social minefield that is the Greek system, and on a cast of characters who are trying to navigate their way through the treacherous terrain of Cyprus-Rhodes University.

In its freshman year, Greek wrapped as ABC Family’s highest-rated original series ever in the key P18-34 and P12-34 demos. The June 9 season finale ranked as basic cable’s #1 program for the hour with women 18-34 and P12-34. Its sophomore season is currently in production.

Greek follows college freshman Rusty (Jacob Zachar, Surf’s Up) as he sets out to reinvent himself after being academically focused during his high school years. Rusty believes that he has missed out on all the fun, and wants to live a different lifestyle in college. Turns out, he is going to the same college his sister Casey (Spencer Grammer, As the World Turns) is, and she’s already popular on campus. As these two navigate their way through the fraternity and sorority life, their previously non-existent relationship becomes intertwined as Rusty tries to live the party life, which Casey feels is an invasion into her world.

Greek also stars Scott Michael Foster (Women’s Murder Club) as Cappie, Jake McDorman (Live Free or Die Hard) as Evan, Clark Duke (Superbad) as Dale, Dilshad Vadsaria (Vanished) as Rebecca, Paul James (CSI: Miami) as Calvin and Amber Stevens (CSI) as Ashleigh.

In the debut episode, premiering Friday, July 4 at 9 p.m. ET, Rusty begins his freshman year at Cyprus-Rhodes University determined to change his life and rush a fraternity. However, his sister Casey, who is already ensconced as a sorority siren, is not too keen on having her younger brother infringe on her territory. From the start, their family bond is tested as Rusty heads into rush week and discovers information that could hurt his sister – and could jeopardize his bid to the most prestigious fraternity on campus.

This year there’s a Top 24 instead of the standard Top 22. Tonight, 12 of them will perform. Tomorrow, the other 12. And then on Wednesday, we’re losing 4 of them?

As you’d expect, the idols are getting talked up as being the most talented musically. It’s going to be interesting to see who can live up to those expectations though.

Here’s who sung what:

Lindsay Barr
Elvis Presley - The Essential Elvis Presley (Remastered) - Burning Love
1-866-943-6501

I found Lindsay a little boring. Nothing much more to say really. Not an outstanding start to the first voting show.

Martin Kerr
Blue Rodeo - Blue Rodeo Greatest Hits, Vol. 1 - Lost Together Lost Together
1-866-943-6502

There were some nice dynamics in the song but it was a bit on the light side for me too.

Gary Morissette
Creedence Clearwater Revival - Chronicle, Vol. 2: Twenty Great CCR Classics (Remastered) - Good Golly Miss Molly Good Golly Miss Molly
1-866-943-6503

That was a fantastic performance. He performed like an old pro.

Tetiana Ostapowych
Julio Iglesias - Love Songs - Feelings Feelings
1-866-943-6504

Tetiana really comes across as a professional when she sings. I really liked her rendition of that classic.

Mitch MacDonald
Gavin DeGraw - Chariot - Follow Through Follow Through
1-866-943-6505

You can really hear Mitch smiling through the song. I think he’s more excited to be on the Canadian Idol stage than actuall be competing. The vocals were a little rough.

Paul Clifford
Seether & Amy Lee - Disclaimer II - Broken (Featuring Amy Lee) Broken
1-866-943-6506

I quite like the husky tones in his voice. It was a pretty good performance by another contestant who seems to have a bit of experience under their belt.

Earl Stevenson
Bob Dylan - The Essential Bob Dylan - All Along the Watchtower Along the Watchtower
1-866-943-6507

There is something special about Earl. I imagine he’s going a long way.

Lisa Bell
The Doobie Brothers - Best of the Doobies - Long Train Runnin' Long Train Runnin’
1-866-943-6508

This girl has a wicked set of pipes on her. That was a great version of a classic song.

Mookie Morris
Studio 99 - Studio 99 Perform a Tribute to the Beatles - Twist and Shout Twist and Shout
1-866-943-6509

Mookie was fantastic. An authentic sounding performance with some half decent dance moves to boot.

Drew Wright
David Bowie & Queen - Best of Bowie - Under Pressure Under Pressure
1-866-943-6510

It was an ok performance but it felt a little affected to me.

Oliver Pigott
Dave Edmunds - A Pile of Rock - Live - I Hear You Knocking I Hear You Knocking
1-866-943-6511

What a strange performance. It almost felt as though Oliver was trying to show off just how good he is but I don’t think it really paid off.

Katherine St-Laurent
Bonnie Tyler - Mullets Rock! Too! : Mullets In Love - Total Eclipse of the Heart Total Eclipse of the Heart
1-866-943-6512

The song was too big for Katherine. Her voice just didn’t seem to be up for the task.
