MEM takes center stage with three high profile productions underway at Canada’s 2023 Upfronts
This past week, Canadian broadcasters announced their exciting 2023-2024 television lineups – and MEM is proud to have a prominent role in announcements from three of the country’s leading networks.
Corus Entertainment partners with MEM for seasons 4 and 5 of Scott Vacation House Rules – all new episodes starting this fall.
“The network’s #2 program last summer**, Corus Studios’ Scott’s Vacation House Rules also returns with new episodes this fall (7×60), with Scott McGillivray using his five rules to turn problem properties into profit. Along with designer Debra Salmoni, Scott unlocks the hidden rental potential of even the most neglected properties, updating and reviving them into unique and buzz-worthy places of paradise.
As previously announced, this series has also been greenlit for Season 5, as part of HGTV Canada and Scott McGillivray’s four-year production commitment and exclusivity deal, and will air in the spring of 2024.

MEM joins Bell Media and Fremantle as the production partner for The Take Back, an exciting new lifestyle reality special airing later this year.
“In this new CTV special, Canadians across the country receive a second chance after a cancelled celebration. THE TAKE BACK team have one week to create a surprise event for unsuspecting Canadians, giving them an experience that will change their ordinary day to an extraordinary lifetime memory. It’s time for a take back! (McGillivray Entertainment Media, Fremantle)”
Finally, MEM is excited to collaborate with Rogers Sports and Media once more for the just-announced third season of Canada’s Got Talent with a $1,000,000 grand prize, the biggest cash prize in Canadian television history.
Thank you to all of our broadcast partners for trusting MEM to deliver engaging, world-class lifestyle and entertainment programming season after season!
