Like any good coach, Sebastian has the motivational attitude to see anyone through the construction process - however lacking in skill they may be. With humour, hijinks and plenty of fumbles, Sebastian and the DIYer tackle the reno like it’s a championship game.   LEAVE IT TO BRYAN (91x30’) With 26 new episodes in Season 4, Leave it to Bryan follows construction guru Bryan Baeulmer as he assists homeowners wanting kick-start their dream renovation project. Bryan helps manage the future project by separating the homeowners wants from their needs, which are more practical. Homeowners must then re-evaluate their expectations and learn to make compromises in this ultimate reno tug of war.   HOUSE OF BRYAN (42x30’) With 13 new episodes added to the catalogue, House of Bryan gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look into the life of iconic contractor Bryan Baeulmer as he transforms his modest 50-year-old bungalow into the ultimate dream home. Viewers will watch as Bryan learns to juggle the demands of work, play and his growing family.   Also available is House of Bryan: On The Rocks where Bryan builds his family’s dream vacation home and House of Bryan: In The Sticks in which he builds his new residence in the country,  

RISKY BUSINESS (12x30’) Hosted by W. Brett Wilson (Dragon’s Den), Risky Business takes inexperienced couples on a financial and emotional rollercoaster as they choose between two unconventional and unique business pitches. In each episode, couples will meet two entrepreneurs who are willing to include them in an upcoming moneymaking deal. The pair chooses one entrepreneur’s pitch and invests their life savings into the deal, which they must turn into a profit in only 30 days. Brett then matches that investment and puts his own money into the other deal. In the end viewers will see which deal was better and if the couples risk is rewarded.
