Lifetime launches in Canada with new Project Runway

  • Print

TORONTO -- The home of Project Runway and Jennifer Love Hewitt tear-jerkers begins broadcasting in Canada next month.

Shaw Media says it will add the female-skewing Lifetime to its specialty stable on Aug. 27, when the U.S. brand will take over Shaw's similar-themed channel Showcase Diva.

Lifetime's schedule will include the competition series Dance Moms, Hewitt's single mother drama The Client List, season 4 of the legal drama Drop Dead Diva, and the 10th season of Project Runway.

Also on deck is the docu-series The Houston Family Chronicles -- about the lives of the late Whitney Houston's family, including daughter Bobbi Kristina and mother Cissy Houston.

Movies on the way include the Lindsay Lohan and Grant Bowler biopic Liz & Dick, the June Carter Cash tale Ring of Fire starring Jewel, a rebooted Steel Magnolias with Queen Latifah, and a contemporary Blue Lagoon: The Awakening with Denise Richards.

Shaw Media says Lifetime will launch with a three-month free preview in nearly 10 million homes across the country.
