Primetime Celine Dion special to air on OWN

This October, Corus Entertainment’s OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network (Canada) presents a new primetime 90-minute special featuring an intimate look at Canadian musical icon Celine Dion set to premiere Sunday, October 2 at 9 p.m. Celine: 3 Boys and a New Show takes viewers behind-the-scenes as Celine creates her Las Vegas show “Celine” and balances being an international superstar and her responsibilities to her family.

“I’m very excited about our new show and so happy to be able to work with Oprah in the early stages of her new network,” said Celine.  “What she’s doing is amazing, and I’m honored to be a small part of it.”

“In Celine: 3 Boys and a New Show Canadian viewers and fans alike are treated to a uniquely intimate behind-the-scenes look at Celine’s personal and professional life since the birth of her twin boys,” said Vibika Bianchi, Vice President, Original Programming, Lifestyle, Reality, Factual Entertainment, Corus Entertainment. “Despite Celine’s super-stardom, audiences will be surprised to find themselves relating to the all too familiar balancing act of juggling a busy career and family life.”

Celine Dion is used to juggling roles as mother, wife and musical icon.  Now she adds another to the list — headliner at Caesars Palace. In this 90-minute primetime special, viewers are given an unprecedented look at the day-to-day balancing act of the legendary artist as she tends to newborn twins, helps her eldest son with his homework and spends quality time with her longtime husband, Rene, all the while working to launch her spectacular Las Vegas extravaganza, “Celine.”

The special is produced by Montreal-based Productions J and executive produced by Julie Snyder and Marianik Giffard.

On March 1, 2011, OWN launched in over six million Canadian homes on what was previously the VIVA channel. OWN is available in Canada through a licence agreement with OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
