Country House Hunters Canada for Bell Media’s CTV

July 17, 2023

Bell Media’s CTV Life Channel in Canada has partnered with Parade Media and Abode Entertainment to produce Country House Hunters Canada (20×30’).

Following the success of Country House Hunters, and its Season 4 renewal with Nine Australia, CTV Life Channel has acquired the 20-part property series, produced by Abode Entertainment, to air in 2023 in Canada.

Abode has an impressive portfolio of property success stories – including Million Dollar House Hunters (60×30’ for Direct TV USA), Find Me A Beach House (10×30’), Find Your Dream Home (10×30’ for Foxtel), and Luxury Homes Revealed (Nine) – and currently have all three versions of the show in production.

Country House Hunters helps couples as they embark on their journey to find their perfect country home. Some are looking to change from an urban to rural setting, others from the mountains to farmland, others from inland to the coast. All are shown three houses by the host, each of which are as unique as the buyers themselves and aim to meet their specific guidelines – be that for a cozy hideaway bolt hole, or a grand architectural masterpiece. The series sweeps viewers up in the buyers’ lives as they whittle their choice of three houses down to their dream home.

Bell Media’s Sr. Lead of Content Sales & Acquisitions, Brian Blazik said: We are thrilled to have Country House Hunters Canada join the CTV Life Channel programming lineup; this format has been a success internationally, including on our network, and we are confident episodes will be a welcome addition for our Canadian audiences.”

Parade’s CEO, Matthew Ashcroft said: ”Gary and the team at Abode have created a wonderful property format for our time, and with the success of the series on Nine and international tape sales to date, the series is set to travel as an original format internationally”. Gary Takle Founder CEO of Abode Entertainment said “Our Canadian host Amanda Aerin has been such a great surprise for us. Her love for everything home and charm brings a real warm character the show that I know Canadians will really resonate with.”
