Three beloved shows on CBC have been cancelled, fresh on the heels of the Rogers-NHL deal.
"Arctic Air," starring Adam Beach as a renegade bush pilot in Yellowknife, N.W.T., lasted three seasons and was considered a homegrown hit. "Cracked" had just completed its sophomore season (to relatively positive reviews) and stand-up/skit program "The Ron James Show" was in the middle of its fifth season.
Upcoming projects that CBC has in the works include a new season of reality competition "Dragons' Den," the half-hour sitcom "Schitt's Creek" starring Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Dan Levy and Chris Elliott and an internationally co-produced TV adaptation of the acclaimed novel "The Book of Negroes."
CBC recently announced that "George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight" has been cancelled, and the titular host is going to be helming the new version of "Hockey Night In Canada."
