(Toronto, Ontario) This March, Corus Entertainment presents the premiere of W Network’s biggest competition series yet, Game of Homes (8X60). Hosted by Emmy® nominated actor Cameron Mathison (All My Children, 54), the Vancouver-based series follows four teams of two amateur home renovators as they compete for the prize of a lifetime – a house and a plot of land to put it on. Produced by Great Pacific Media in association with W Network, Game of Homes premieres Tuesday, March 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on W Network.
“Game of Homes is the biggest series of its kind for W Network,” said John MacDonald, Vice President, Television, Head of Corus Women and Family, Corus Entertainment. “We’ve taken over the harbourfront of downtown Vancouver and challenged four teams of amateurs to transform four tear downs into their dream homes. They’ll be joined by renowned guest judges including Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott, and Jillian Harris and Todd Talbot of Love It or List It: Vancouver in their pursuit of a once in a lifetime final prize. The show features contestants with larger-than-life personalities for whom this prize means a lot more than just a great renovation, it will truly be life changing.”
In Game of Homes, host Cameron Mathison guides the teams as they compete for the ultimate prize. The teams save rundown houses that are marked to be torn down and revive them into their dream homes, room-by-room. These condemned houses slated for the wrecking ball, are uprooted and transported by truck and barge to downtown Vancouver. Here in public view teams will work side by side, around the clock, to completely transform these dumps into show homes while living in them. They will battle small budgets, tight deadlines cramped quarters and each other for a chance to win a home and change their lives forever.
The action-packed series pits each team’s skill, ingenuity and teamwork against each other. Every week, two expert judges, Cheryl Torrenueva (Home to Go, Restaurant Makeover) and Jeremy MacPherson (The Re-Inventors) assess the design and workmanship of each team’s room transformation. They will be joined by celebrity guest judges including: Jillian Harris and Todd Talbot from W Network’s Love It or List It Vancouver; Drew and Jonathan Scott from W Network’s Property Brothers; CMT’s Kortney and Dave Wilson; Colin and Justin (Colin and Justin’s Home Heist, I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here); Kelly Deck (Take it Outside); and Dee Dee Eustace (Love By Design, Real Designing Women). In the grand finale, the public will also cast their vote on which team has achieved the most spectacular home renovation.
