As previously announced, Bell Media expanded its partnership with FOX Entertainment completing a deal with the network for their acquisition of HOLMES FAMILY EFFECT, with the series airing on FOX as part of the network’s 2020/21 midseason schedule.
“We can’t wait to introduce this uplifting new series from the Holmes family to CTV viewers,” said Karine Moses, Senior Vice-President, Content Development & News, Bell Media. “This series is making a difference for organizations in Canada, and with worldwide distribution for HOLMES FAMILY EFFECT handled by Bell Media, we look forward to bringing this series to U.S. audiences on FOX, as well as to viewers around the world.”
On the series premiere of HOLMES FAMILY EFFECT, “A Trade of a Lifetime” (Sunday, Feb. 7 directly following SUPER BOWL LV on CTV, and the all-new CTV.ca and CTV app), Mike, Sherry, and Michael Holmes take on a project that is close to their hearts when 18-year-old Riley asks for their help to save her school’s skilled trades program. With some help from school alumnus and special guest Russell Peters, the Holmes family transform three rundown classrooms – and wear their teachers’ hats to give the kids a chance to learn from the pros. As a special thank you for helping change the students’ lives, the trio and Riley also give back to her extraordinary teacher, Mr. Meleca. The renovation not only impacts the current students, but will improve learning for future classes of trades professionals, making it a special project for the Holmes family.
