Toronto-based Si Entertainment has picked up three new unscripted titles for distribution.

Majumder Manor (8 x 30′ HD) is produced by Take the Shot Productions for W Network, and sees Canuck actor and comedian Shaun Majumder return to his hometown — the small and all-but-unknown Newfoundland and Labrador outport community of Burlington, population 376 —with his big-city-raised fiancĂ©e, Shelby Fenner, his big sister Rani Majumder and his pal Peter Blackie.

Meanwhile, It’s All About Me (1 hour feature in HD) is produced by Gaber Productions and looks at how historical and cultural dynamics have influenced generational change over the past 60 years, pondering the question of whether or not today’s advanced technology is fueling rampant narcissism.

Employee of the Week (12 x 30′ HD), which is coproduced by Corkscrew Media, Gordon Drake Inc, and Cheval Noir for CMT, is a charity-competition show that pits two celebrities against each other as they try their hand at a manual labor job, such as cleaning sewers, hauling manure, mining coal or catching lobster. The winner, as chosen by the Average Joe boss, gets $5,000 for his or her charity.

Si has more than 500 hours of programming in its catalog, including lifestyle, scripted, factual, documentary and reality shows, series and formats.
