Vancouver-based Force Four Entertainment is tackling obesity in a town in British Columbia, with the entire town agreeing to lose one ton of collective weight in a three month period for Village On A Diet, premiering on January 3 on CBC Television. The ten-part series has a team of experts on board, including a physician, chef, psychologist and trainers, in order to help the people of Taylor, B.C. succeed in the weight-loss quest. CBC will also air a special one-hour update episode once the season has ended. John Ritchie, EP and partner of Force Four Entertainment, says, ‘It’s much more than a TV series. We are telling the dramatic stories of the people of Taylor and with CBC we’re hoping to create a movement to inspire Canadians to make healthier choices for themselves, their families, and their communities.’
