    MASTERS OF FLIP (26×60′)
    The first two seasons of Masters of Flip have now sold to Discovery Channel for TLC in Poland and DLife in MENA, and to A+E Networks UK for the entertainment channel Lifetime in the United Kingdom and Sub-Saharan Africa.

    Hit lifestyle series Masters of Flip features the dynamic super couple Kortney and Dave Wilson, who take on the challenge of transforming their rundown real estate investments into stunning and sellable family homes. Working with limited timelines and budgets, this real life husband and wife make their refreshingly positive outlook the driving force behind their projects. Despite the ever present “renovation frustration,” they remain upbeat and kind to contractors, trades people and most importantly to each other! The series is produced by Rhino Content and developed in association with Corus Entertainment.

    BUYING THE VIEW (26×30′)

    Buying the View features luxurious properties with spectacular views, from sprawling beaches in Miami to Toronto’s glittering and expanding skyline, to the majestic mountain chalets in Whistler. In each half-hour episode, viewers join realtors and potential buyers on the hunt for homes where the million dollar view always seals the deal. The series is produced by Our House Media in association with Corus Entertainment.

    CHEER SQUAD (10×60′)
    The first season of Cheer Squad has now sold to Foxtel for LifeStyle YOU in Australia. The Great White Sharks are a sisterhood, there for each other through first loves, new jobs, bad breakups, and everything in between.
