The 13 x 30-minutes series is produced by Omni Film and will premiere on July 16 at 9 p.m.

Meanwhile, On The Case With Paula Zahn will return to U.S. net Investigation Discovery for a seventh season in the fourth quarter of this year.

Finally, Slice has picked up a second season of The Real Housewives of Vancouver, the Canadian spin-off of Bravo’s Housewives franchise, from Lark Productions. A spokeswoman for the Canadian reality network could not yet confirm the number of episodes or a target air date.
