Slice announces winter line-up

Jam-packed with huge celebrity star power, alluring new reality series, returning audience favourites and sensational back-to-back Sunday movie lineups, SliceTM announces its highly anticipated new winter schedule will launch the week of January 2.

Exclusive to SliceTM, Four Weddings Canada offers viewers a first time glance at Canadian brides competing in a matrimonial showdown for their dream honeymoon. Tune in and watch as four brides critique the food, the venue, the overall experience, and most importantly – the dress, as each one says I do.  Shaw Media is delighted to welcome the Canadian edition of the hit Four Weddings franchise to SliceTM.

“Already a huge international hit, the Four Weddings format boasts a feisty, fun dynamic that our Canadian audiences are going to love,” said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President of Content, Shaw Media. “Each episode showcases the diverse tastes and spirited personalities of the brides as they vie for their fantasy honeymoon getaway. SliceTM’s winter schedule is packed with brand new hit reality series and returning viewer favourites with a twist, demonstrating Shaw Media’s continued success in bringing fresh, fun and relevant content to our audiences.”   

Project Runway, an all-time favourite among SliceTM viewers joins the all-stars league. The Emmy Award-winning series is launching an All-Stars season featuring an exciting new cast and memorable contestants from past seasons. Marie Claire Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles will act as mentor for the “Runway” veterans, world-famous designers Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman will serve as judges, and supermodel Angela Lindvall will play host to this exciting new season.  This new spin on an old favourite ups the ante as returning contestants battle for the most lucrative prizing ever in Project Runway history.

The infamous Lenore Skenazy, best known for her headline-making parenting tactics, will star in the all new Canadian series Bubble Wrap Kids. Facing challenges from pre-teens who aren’t allowed to ride bikes to parents who won’t allow their 15 year old to go to the bathroom unsupervised, this tough but compassionate parenting expert and author tackles it all. In each episode, Lenore helps parents loosen the reigns and allow their kids to reclaim their childhoods.

In an all new season of Millionaire Matchmaker (Season 5) Patti Stanger calls on celebrity friends Tori Spelling and Jenny McCarthy to provide expert advice for her unlucky millionaires. The world’s number one lifestyle reality franchise, The Real Housewives, returns with a new season of Atlanta (Season 4).

Brand new to SliceTM, the Braverman family is joining the Friday night lineup in a new season of Parenthood (Season 3). This buzzed about new series provides a great dramatic addition to the highly anticipated new winter lineup on SliceTM.

 

Big new series premiering this winter include:

Bubble Wrap Kids (13x60min) (Canadian Premiere)

Lenore Skenazy hit the headlines in April 2008 when she allowed her 9-year-old son, Izzy, to travel on the New York Subway on his own. The media called her ‘America’s Worst Mom,’ but her message to ‘helicopter parents’ has resonated worldwide. Now she’s coming to Canada to help kids reclaim their childhood – and parents, their sanity. Lenore offers up advice and takes families through a series of challenges designed to push parents’ boundaries, give their family more freedom, and help their kids become independent adults.
