September 26, 2013 (Toronto, ON) – From the big city to the great white north, everyone’s favourite design duo Colin and Justin are taking the plunge into cottage ownership with new TV channel Cottage Life. Their newly greenlit series Colin and Justin’s Cabin Pressure (13 x 30 min.) will follow the boys as they find their perfect escape and do a complete overhaul on it. The pressure mounts as they battle the bugs and their tiny budget to bring their dream to life. The series has begun production and will premiere Spring 2014.
“Bringing their unique flair for design, we’re happy to bring Colin and Justin to Cottage Life audiences,” said Marcia Martin, SVP, Original Content, Blue Ant Media. “We’re eager to see this classic fish-out-of-water tale unfold as they redesign their dream weekend getaway, with no shortage of drama along the way.”
“Having battled metropolitan bad taste for the last few years, we’ve decided to take our finely tuned city style gene to beautiful cottage country. And for the first time ever on TV, we’re transforming our own home. Blimey; there’s so much to do, so much to plan and so many changes to make. But will it all come together beautifully? Will we pull it off? Or will all our carefully manicured plans go belly up? Guess only time will tell…” said design duo Colin and Justin.
After months of heartbreaking property tours, Colin and Justin finally find a 4-bedroom log cottage with wraparound decks and views to die for. But their rustic refuge is much in need of modern lovin’ that only the talented duo can give it. Without the hefty designer budget they normally have they must pinch their pennies and economize. The pressure is on to create their dream cottage all while dealing with the unfamiliarity of cottage country.
Colin and Justin’s Cabin Pressurerong> is a co-production between Blue Ant Media, Peace Point Entertainment Group and OUTtv. The Executive Producer is Les Tomlin.
