Post by: Leafsfan on July 13, 2020, 09:35:53 AM
BBCAN has been renewed for its 9th season!!

And Arisa has also been promoted to Executive producer (she will still be the host).


Global, a Corus Entertainment network, and Insight Productions announced today the greenlight for Season 9 of Big Brother Canada, and the promotion of series Host Arisa Cox to Executive Producer. Commissioned by Corus Entertainment for Global, Big Brother Canada is produced by Insight Productions and helmed by Showrunner and EP Erin Brock.

“We have reached a turning point in history and as the fight against racism and issues facing Black, Indigenous and people of colour around the world have been pulled into the spotlight, Big Brother Canada is seizing this moment to become a leader in the reality TV world,” said Arisa Cox, Host and Executive Producer, Big Brother Canada. “Our top priority is bold, lasting change by embracing the rich diversity of Canada in front of and behind the camera. Both are vital. And as one of the biggest and best reality TV shows in the country, we have both the ability and the responsibility to do just that. I’m thrilled to join Erin and the producing team, and work together to ensure Big Brother Canada meets this moment.”

As an Executive Producer, Arisa now plays a critical role in all storytelling aspects of Big Brother Canada. In partnership with Erin and the EPs, Arisa’s responsibilities now include key creative input on the show’s real-time storylines, casting and outreach, and increasing BIPOC representation across the board, among others. Global and Insight Productions are working together to implement anti-racism policies and procedures that foster a creative environment where equity, inclusion, and diversity can flourish on and off camera.

“Arisa Cox has been an integral part of Big Brother Canada, always armed with an arsenal of bold and bright ideas, thoughtful insights, and a deep passion for the show,” said Erin Brock Showrunner and Executive Producer, Big Brother Canada/Insight Productions. “We’re passionately committed to leading thought-provoking conversations, telling uniquely Canadian stories, and reflecting the diverse culture of Canada. Arisa has always demonstrated a fierce commitment to these ideals and I’m excited to elevate our partnership and to continue to make trailblazing content.”

“Big Brother Canada is an original production like no other and we are so proud of its unprecedented success across platforms. It is the ultimate social experiment and, oftentimes, a microcosm of our own society,” said Lisa Godfrey, Vice President, Original Content, Corus Entertainment. “As producers of original content in Canada, we are dedicated to paving new paths for creators to thrive in all aspects of storytelling, and are honoured to recognize Arisa Cox’s longstanding success as a Canadian storyteller in her new role as Executive Producer.”

Set to debut on Global in spring 2021, Big Brother Canada is one of the most internationally revered iterations of the Endemol Shine format. Pre-production for Season 9 includes a thorough review of current production practices and the development of new ones, anti-racism personnel policies, racial-equity training, and more. Additional announcements regarding Season 9, including casting opportunities, will be made at a later date.

Commissioned by Corus Entertainment, Season 9 of Big Brother Canada is produced by Insight Productions Ltd. in association with Corus Entertainment and Endemol Shine. Executive Producers are John Brunton, Erin Brock, Eric Abboud, Trevor Boris, and Arisa Cox.

Doubt it will be all stars, but they could bring back some of the BBCAN8 houseguests who had their season cut short by COVID.

She said champions.... that could literally mean anything.

Could be champions in their respective fields, athletes, prior winners returning (though this is unlikely, considering the current push for diversity), competition record holders etc.

For Immediate Release

TORONTO, February 23, 2021 – Global is pleased to announce eight first-rate sponsors, including four new and four returning, for Season 9 of Big Brother Canada. The Global Original hit series welcomes back Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), Expedia, Wendy’s® and SkipTheDishes, and salutes first-time sponsors TikTok, Sunlight, Weber, and Muskoka Spirits to the new season. Continuing to showcase the most unique and clever integrations on TV, this season Big Brother Canada’s sponsors are primed to bolster the show’s twists, challenges, prizing, and more.

“As we head into the ninth season of Big Brother Canada, we are absolutely thrilled with the client response and can’t wait to debut their custom integrations,” said Barb McKergow, Senior Vice President, National Advertising, Corus Entertainment. “This series is the perfect promotional vehicle for top-quality brands to create some of TV’s most innovative and advanced multiplatform integrations, and Season 9 will be no exception.”

Big Brother Canada’s series sponsors are sold, created, and customized through Corus Tempo, Corus’ full-service marketing and creative team. Utilizing a vast range of multiplatform Corus assets to design and execute custom integrated marketing programs for clients, Corus Tempo leads each campaign with insights and strategic brand solutions that range from short and long form branded content to sponsorships, talent endorsements and integrations. As one of the most social shows on the planet, reaching over 17,000,000 in Season 7, Big Brother Canada’s social media platforms, including the brand new TikTok feed, are powered by so.da, Corus Entertainment’s in-house, award-winning social and digital agency.

Returning for another season, OLG offers houseguests a new custom “Play Room” – a modern-styled area for houseguests to relax and strategize about winning the season, outfitted with a digitally integrated table hockey game with scorekeeping displayed on screens in the room. In addition, takeover week is back in a never-seen-before format where OLG will sponsor the HOH and POV competitions, plus a special task – all in one week!

The Big Brother Canada OLG Fantasy Pool also returns for a second year featuring a weekly experience for Ontario fans to make predictions and earn chances to win big prizes. Led by the incomparable #BBCAN6 houseguest Erica Hill, each week she will share questions while keeping players up to date on results and winning moments all season long.

After coming on board last season, Expedia also returns this year as part of the grand prize offering with an unforgettable vacation for two. Houseguests will also be swept away to experience the best of what Canada has to offer from coast-to-coast-to-coast in a new room featuring some of the best Canadian destinations. Season 9 will also include a custom Expedia challenge that will definitely pull at the houseguests’ heartstrings.

TikTok (NEW)
TikTok joins the Big Brother Canada family as a new sponsor and the first short-form video platform to program directly into the show. #BBCAN fans will experience the cultural moments that start on TikTok through a custom screen inside the #BBCAN9 house that will feature special guests throughout the season and houseguests will participate in a TikTok POV challenge. TikTok will be home to “After the Eviction” – an extension to Arisa’s in-show interviews, providing exclusive live access to the houseguests directly following their eviction every Thursday.

In addition, the season will include a custom task and reward that will also help keep the house and houseguests looking fresh – all with the power of Sunlight! Then on social, the first four evicted houseguests are “coming clean” as they read funny tweets about themselves from fans on Twitter.

Wendy’s® (RETURNING)
Returning for a fourth consecutive year with the show, longstanding #BBCAN brand partner Wendy’s® is back with the coveted and satisfying “Drive Thru” pantry – and this time it’s going virtual! Featuring fan-favourite items including 100% Fresh Never Frozen Canadian Beef hamburgers, Spicy Chicken Sandwiches, Frostys®, Salads made fresh daily with Greenhouse Grown Canadian Lettuce, and more, houseguests will place their orders on a tablet and receive a special video message from home once their order is ready.

SkipTheDishes (RETURNING)
SkipTheDishes also returns with “Skip the Slop” where fans vote for one of the four Have-Nots to “Skip The Slop” for the week and order a special meal just for them, delivered by SkipTheDishes.

Weber (NEW)
New sponsor Weber Grills will heat things up by putting the houseguests’ grilling skills to the test. Discover what’s possible as Weber will help transform the #BBCAN9 outdoor space with its legendary grills and give the houseguests the chance to win a grilling party for the entire house – and a Weber grill for themselves!

Weber will also reward the Season 9 winner with $10,000 worth of its industry-leading grills, tools, and accessories to help them discover what’s possible at home! Viewers can follow the action on Weber Canada’s social media pages for #BBCAN9 themed content, contests and more!
