Backyard Builds, a lifestyle program that showcases the endless opportunities outdoor areas can provide, has been renewed for a second season by Corus Entertainment.
The program, which is produced by Frantic Films, sees contractor Brian McCourt and designer Sarah Keenleyside work with homeowners to extend their living spaces and maximize their backyard’s potential by creating one-of-a-kind structures and clever designs.
In the show’s first season, the duo retrofitted an old shipping container into an outdoor office, created a backyard treehouse village, built a backyard sports bar and entertainment hangout, installed an outdoor movie theatre, and constructed a dream cottage retreat in another backyard.
The 2018-19 schedule will see the Canadian media and broadcasting company introduces a diverse range of programming including docu-series, fashion, home renovation, and competition series that make up six new Canadian productions and three returning series.
“Corus is dedicated to investing in outstanding scripted and unscripted Canadian content through collaboration with the country’s most talented production partners,” says the broadcaster’s vice-president of original content, Lisa Godfrey. “Our all-encompassing slate of Canadian productions showcases exceptional storytelling, stellar Canadian personalities, and innovative formats that resonate with viewers across the country, while also delivering global appeal.”
