Canada talk show "Steven and Chris" coming to U.S.

TORONTO (Hollywood Reporter) - The Canadian daytime talk show “Steven and Chris” is venturing into syndication across the United States after receiving a fourth-season greenlight from the Canadian Broadcasting Corp.

The lifestyle series, hosted by Steven Sabados and Chris Hyndman, was canceled last year by the cash-strapped public broadcaster. But the CBC revived the series for a third season, and now plans a fourth season in partnership with PPI Releasing, which will handle U.S. syndication.

The upcoming season, to be shot in HD, will include a spinoff multiplatform program “Better Choice Challenge,” where TV viewers improve their lifestyles via a social networking component developed by the CBC.

Additionally, PPI and CBC will supply TV stations with tailored short-form content to help drive local spot sales across the broadcast, online and mobile platforms. PPI plans a phased roll-out of “Steve and Chris” starting in fall 2010.
