LoveItListItLove It or List It is set to hit the 100 episode mark next month.

The 100th episode of the celebrated W Network hit show, Love It or List It, is scheduled to air Monday, June 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Marking the milestone for the popular Canadian series, the network, show producers, crew and hosts will celebrate with a red-carpet gala event in Toronto at the end of May.

Trailblazers in the factual entertainment genre, Gemini-award winning Big Coat Productions partnered with W Network to create Love It or List It as a reality hybrid show, blending the two genres that married the voyeuristic appeal of real estate and the dramatic and comedic reality of renovations.

The unique, character-driven format sees homeowners embark on an emotional rollercoaster as hosts battle for their allegiance.

“As the 100th episode approaches, we are honoured to work with the innovative team at W Network to create a program format that so strongly resonates with North American audiences,” says Executive Producer, Maria Armstrong.

“We are thrilled that the success of W Network’s Love It or List It has led to the franchising of the newly launched Vancouver edition; the first such franchise in Canadian television. This only reinforces how well audiences connect to the Love It or List It brand.” Says Co-Executive Producer Catherine Fogarty.

““Love It or List It’s success is a true testament to the collaborative efforts of a producer’s team and a broadcaster’s team to find an innovative approach to the property genre and continually refresh the format. We have a ratings winner and the show’s popularity continues to grow with diehard fans as well as new viewers discovering it for the first time,” said Vibika Bianchi, Vice President, Original Programming, Lifestyle, Reality, Factual Entertainment, Corus Entertainment.

This collaborative dedication to entertaining the audience has yielded five successful seasons, a Vancouver spin-off and an overwhelming reception from both sides of the border (including a public nod from Hillary Rodham Clinton).

The 100th episode premieres Monday, June 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and features Hilary Farr andDavid Visentin taking on one of their toughest assignments yet. Ron and Mishelle purchased his family’s legacy farmhouse and became the fifth generation of his family to live in it. Mishelle feels they have too much unusable space as well as too much mortgage and she wants to move back to the city. Can Hilary keep this couple in Ron’s family home with enough modern changes to keep city-dweller Mishelle happy? Or will David find a home that will satisfy both the city mouse and country mouse?
