E! spotlights Canadians

Northern talents including Nelly Furtado and Céline Dion will be spotlighted on True Hollywood Stories.

Canwest is upping the Canadian content on the E! network with True Hollywood Stories, a new series that spotlights northern talents including Nelly Furtado and Céline Dion.

Billed as made in Canada, and about Canadians, the 10-ep run begins August 6 with a look at game show host and Global TV mainstay Howie Mandel (pictured). Next up in the 10 pm spot: profiles of Dion, Furtado, Jim Carrey and the late wrestler Chris Benoit.

Another five episodes slated for fall will look at Kim Cattrall, Michael Cera, Hayden Christensen and Kiefer Sutherland.
