Production has begun on Tori & Dean: Cabin Fever, a new series from Toronto-based indie Cineflix for Corus Entertainment’s CMT and Scripps Networks Interactive’s HGTV in the U.S.
The eight-episode, half-hour series follows actors Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott and their four kids, as they use their DIY expertise to renovate a lakeside cottage and experience cottage life in Ontario, Canada.
Spelling and Toronto-born McDermott, who is hosting Chopped Canada this fall on Food Network, are exec producers on the series, along with Cineflix’s Simon Lloyd. Tori & Dean: Cabin Fever is produced by Cineflix, in association with CMT and HGTV.
The series is slated to air on CMT and HGTV in 2014.
