Global Greenlights Original Reality Powerhouse Big Brother Canada for 11th Season
Global made a big announcement at today’s #CorusUpfront when host and executive producer Arisa Cox revealed that hit Global original reality series Big Brother Canada will return for a groundbreaking 11th season. Produced by Insight Productions (a Boat Rocker company) in association with Corus Entertainment and Banijay, the greenlight follows a monumental 10th Season that celebrated a decade of the wildest social experiment on television.
““We are thrilled to greenlight season 11 of reality sensation Big Brother Canada, and we look forward to another season filled with non-stop entertainment and innovative brand integrations,” said Lisa Godfrey, Senior Vice President of Original Content and Corus Studios. “Alongside our creative partners at Insight Productions, we are excited to deliver yet another notable season full of classic BBCAN twists and turns.”
Big Brother Canada hand-picks a group of strangers from all walks of life, sequesters them from the outside world, and places them inside a house outfitted wall-to-wall with cameras and microphones that capture their every move. Competing for a grand cash prize, each week the houseguests battle in a series of challenges that give them power or punishment, voting each other out until the fate of the final two is decided by a jury of fellow houseguests.
Additional details about Big Brother Canada Season 11, including casting news, will be announced at a later date. In the meantime, fans can catch up on all the best moments from Season 10 on BigBrotherCanada.ca and can stream the full season for free on the Global TV App, also available on STACKTV.
