Second season greenlit for CBC’s Women

And this time the departure point for The Week the Women Went will be Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia.

What happened when most of the female denizens of a western town deserted their families for a week proved to be such a popular reality show that The Week the Women Went has been renewed for a second season.

But the locale when the 8 x 60 series returns in January won’t be Hardisty, AB, but Tatamagouche, NS. ‘We are very excited about profiling this unique Maritime village to create the second season of this hit show,’ says Cal Shumiatcher, executive producer at Vancouver’s Paperny Films, who adds that his team was ‘thrilled with the warm reception we received from the Tatamagouche community.’

As with the first season of Women Went, the series is part social experiment, part docu-soap, with each episode chronicling the drama, humour, frustration and fun that occurs when the men in a small fishing village are pushed to their limits without female support.
