The fall schedule for Shaw Media’s Slice Network includes eight new shows, leading off with Cake Walk: Wedding Cake Edition, which premieres on Wednesday, Sept. 7 at 9 p.m. The show is hosted by Caroline Rhea and features Canadian cake designers competing to create a wedding cake for one couple.

Premiering on Thursday, Sept. 8 at 9 p.m. is Shotgun Reno, which pairs a major life stressor like having a baby or getting married and throwing a home renovation into the mix.

Dance Moms, which premieres on Thursday, Sept. 8 at 10 p.m., goes inside the competitive world of dancing, complete with pushy moms and child stars.

Intervention Canada, the recently released spin-off of the Emmy award-winning American show, premieres on Friday, Sept. 9 at 8 p.m. The show profiles people whose dependence on drugs, alcohol or other compulsive behaviours have brought them to the point of personal crisis.

Premiering on Friday, Sept. 9 at 10 p.m., is Mob Wives, a series which follows four women dealing with life after their husbands or fathers have been convicted of committing mob-related crimes.

Also new to the specialty channel is Drop Dead Diva, the comedic drama which tells the story of a model who dies and is re-born as a plus sized attorney. The third season of the show premieres on Sunday, Sept. 11 at 10 p.m.

Former Dragon’s Den star Brett Wilson’s new show Risky Business premieres on Monday, Sept. 12 at 9 p.m. The show gives couples two unconventional ways to invest their life savings, such as investing in undervalued vintage wine labels, or a high stakes night of gambling. The couple invests in one option and Wilson puts his own money into the other.

Last up in the fall lineup is ‘Til Debt Do Us Part: Baby Edition, premiering on Monday, Sept. 12 at 9:30 p.m. The latest from host Gail Vaz-Oxlade helps families dealing with the financial burdens of parenthood by putting them on a budget.
