Homegrown heavyweights “Big Brother Canada” as well as “Remedy” are both back on Global beginning in March, with the two series airing back-to-back.

“Viewers are thirsty for ‘watercooler’ moments and engaging, edge-of-your-seat content, and our homegrown hits deliver just that,” said Christine Shipton, Senior Vice President of Content at Shaw Media. “With ‘Big Brother Canada’ and ‘Remedy,’ viewers are in for must-see drama on-screen, interactive and engaging second screen experiences, and non-stop thrills.”

Following two seasons, and five Canadian Screen Awards nominations, “Big Brother Canada’s” third run will be its biggest and boldest yet, with 25 hours of non-stop drama broadcast nationally each week.

“Big Brother Canada’s” rousing reality schedule is as follows:

·         The series airs Mondays at 8pm, Wednesdays at 9pm, and Sundays at 7pm on Global.

·         The “Big Brother Canada Side Show” returns for its second season in a new, one-hour format Thursdays at 10pm beginning March 26th on Slice.

·         “Big Brother Canada After Dark” returns Monday through Sunday from 3am to 6am beginning March 26th on Slice.

·         Online, the show’s popular live feeds, which streamed over 46.5 million minutes of content last season, return free-of-charge on www.BigBrotherCanada.ca.

Following a coast-to-coast casting call, a new group of houseguests will move in to a recently renovated Big Brother Canada house outfitted wall-to-wall with cameras and microphones capturing their every move. The houseguests will compete for a grand prize of $100,000 and a $25,000 gift card from The Brick.

Boasting an impressive four Canadian Screen Awards nominations including Best Dramatic Series, the second season of “Remedy” (from creator and showrunner Greg Spottiswood) airs in the coveted 9pm timeslot on Mondays. The much-anticipated series return kicks off with each member of the Conner family pulled out of their comfort zones and Bethune Hospital in the midst of a colossal shake up. Griffin Conner (Canadian Screen Awards nominee Dillon Casey) seems to finally be getting his life on track with plans to return to medical school and a serious girlfriend, but his dark and troubled past continues to haunt him. Meanwhile, Allen (Enrico Colantoni) is adjusting following his demotion from Chief-of-Staff, while his daughters – surgeon Mel (Sara Canning) and new mom Sandy (Sarah Allen) – search to balance co-parenting baby Maya with work and play.

“Big Brother Canada” and “Remedy” are set to premiere Monday, March 23rd at 8pm and 9pm on Global.
