‘We look forward to collaborating with these top Canadian producers and production companies to create, develop, sell, produce and distribute original and globally-focused new formats.’

Jennifer Dettman, the CBC’s exec director for studio and unscripted content, added: ‘CBC continues to be a huge advocate of these kinds of partnerships, particularly when we can continue to produce great content right here at home. When Phil approached us, we were very interested in the opportunity and we’re pleased to partner with The Gurin Company, who are such supporters of international production and content.’

The Gurin Company’s past format successes have included bringing the BBC’s The Weakest Link format to America for runs on both NBC and in syndication; bringing Test the Nation to Fox after its launch in The Netherlands; and bringing Japan’s Dragon’s Den format to the States, where it became ABC’s Shark Tank.”
