Corus Entertainment-owned W Network is expanding its Love It or List It franchise with a vacation home-themed spin-off.

Produced by Toronto’s Big Coat Productions, the 13 x 60-minute Love It or List It Vacation Homes is to spotlight vacation properties across the Canadian provinces of Ontario and British Columbia.

American interior designer Dan Vickery (pictured, left) and realtor Elisa Goldhawke (right) serve as hosts competing against one another to sway homeowners to either stay in their redesigned space or sell the vacation home.

The series is slated to premiere on the Canadian net in the spring of 2016 with production beginning at the end of this month.

Big Coat Productions produces W Network’s signature series Love It or List It and Love It or List It Vancouver. The Canadian prodco has also licensed the format rights to British producer Raise The Roof Productions for Love It or List It UK.

“We’re excited to build on the success of the franchise with Love It or List It Vacation Homes, and give this popular format a fresh twist while exploring properties in some of the extraordinary landscapes and hot spots that Canada has to offer,” said John MacDonald, VP of television and head of women and family for Corus Entertainment, in a statement.
