It’ll be a busy summer for Toronto’s Tricon Films & Television, as it announces production of three lifestyle series for three Canuck channels.

They include Love Trap (30 x 30 minutes) for Cosmo TV, which gives individuals the chance to make a move on their secret crushes, hosted by MTV Canada co-host Evan Starkman (The Real World, The Duel, The Gauntlet).

For Slice, Tricon is producing Ex-Wives Rock (14 x 30 minutes), revolving around a female foursome’s reinvention after their marriages to rock stars.

Finally, Game Changers (8 x 30 minutes) for Discovery Channel Canada with host Andrew Anthony (Matchmaker, Life’s a Trip) will delve into cool ideas and scientific rebels that are changing the world.
