Corus Studios has unveiled a trio of greenlights ahead of international TV market MIPTV, including new unscripted TV properties from unscripted giants McGillivray Entertainment and Scott Brothers Entertainment, the companies behind powerhouses such as Income Property and Property Brothers, respectively.

Among the new commissions is Vacation House Rules (10 x 60 minutes), produced by McGillivray Entertainment. The series follows the renovation expert as he looks to increase the rental potential of neglected properties, transforming tricky homes into dream properties.

Another new series on Corus’ slate is Make Your Move (working title, 10 x 60 minutes) from Scott Brothers Entertainment. Produced for HGTV Canada, the show focuses on Dave and Kortney Wilson (Masters of Flip, pictured) as they try to work with homeowners who are stuck in a house-hunting rut.

Also coming to Corus is Farmhouse Facelift (working title, 10 x 60 minutes) follows siblings Bill Pearson and Carolyn Wilbrink as they restore old farmhouses in their hometown.

Both Vacation House Rules and Farmhouse Facelift are produced in association with Corus Studios for HGTV Canada. Make Your Move is produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment for HGTV Canada.

Tuesday’s greenlight announcements follow the news that Corus Entertainment has strengthened its presence in the lifestyle space through its acquisition of Kin’s Canadian operations.
