How Canada’s ‘The Launch’ Is Retuning the Reality Singing Competition Formula

  • Variety
How Canada’s ‘The Launch’ Is Retuning the Reality Singing Competition Formula
The Launch,” Big Machine Records President/CEO Scott Borchetta’s singing competition on Canadian Television (CTV), is getting a second season, having landed an exclusive worldwide distribution deal with Sony Pictures Television (Spt). The show is set to begin filming in Toronto this coming Fall for the 2018-19 season.

After just one season on the air, the show has seen success from its graduates the likes of which most reality competition shows strive for: six of the series’ singles have seen major traction, including four No. 1 songs on iTunes Canada: Poesy’s “Soldier of Love,” Logan Staats’ “The Lucky Ones,” Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine’s “Ain’t Easy,” which was recently certified platinum, and The Static Shift’s “Wide Awake.”

That success, Borchetta tells Variety, is validation that “we might really have something here.”

The idea for “The Launch” came to Borchetta shortly after completing his final season as

Our Five Favorite Fictional Architects in Movies

They’re responsible for the layout of many various projects, for the plans that will tell people what to build, what to put where, and how the entire thing will look when it’s finished. They go to school for years to obtain the knowledge of how to craft and put together structures that others will find interesting and engaging. Architects tend to get credit for the designs they put together but that’s where a lot of them are then left without much else in the way of praise. The lucky ones that continue to build one masterpiece after another are those

Anti-Art Criticism, “In the Age of Trump”

The joke between me and my Sundance roommate/colleague was that every review and write-up would contain the phrase “In the age of Trump.” Another phrase to watch out for is “now more than ever,” spoken verbatim twice during this year’s Sundance acceptance speeches. The proposition that independent film will “lead the resistance” against Our 45th President is a dubious one: I don’t remember The Lucky Ones or In the Valley of Elah helping anything in particular. The repeated invocation of certain dead phrases to summon up a spell against the darkness inevitably and a bit boringly brings to mind Orwell’s “Politics and the English Language,” […]

Ocean Maturo, brother of August Maturo (aka Auggie Matthews), will play a younger version of Auggie during a flashback in an upcoming Season 3 episode, TVLine has learned exclusively.

RelatedDescendants 2 Premiering in 2017; China Anne McClain Cast as Ursula 2.0

And here’s a fun fact: Ocean Maturo played baby Michael in the first season of American Horror Story, which means he’s one of the few people on this planet fortunate enough to have touched Connie Britton’s hair.
