Canada gets its own ‘Amazing Race’

Insight will adapt U.S. format for local market

MONTREAL

Canadian commercial web CTV has ordered up “The Amazing Race Canada” from Toronto’s Insight Prods.

The news was announced during Sunday’s episode of the U.S. version of “The Amazing Race” by host Phil Keoghan in a special message aired for Canuck viewers.

Insight has already produced a number of local adaptations of international reality shows, notably “Canadian Idol,” “Canada’s Got Talent” and “Big Brother Canada,” which will air on Shaw-owned Slice this season.

CTV acquired Canadian rights to “The Amazing Race” from Disney-ABC Domestic Television.

The show will air next summer with competitors racing each other throughout Canada, with specific destinations to be announced at a later date.

“Canadians deserve their own summer version,” said CTV programming prexy Phil King.

“With the incredible diversity, scope, beauty and sheer land mass that Canada has to offer, ‘The Amazing Race Canada’ will explore the world within Canada.”

TV networks are heavy on local versions of hit reality series, where they are strong performers. City-tv just ended the first season of “The Bachelor Canada.”
