Two Pamela Anderson shows are among the highlights of Corus Entertainment’s upcoming TV plans.

The broadcaster revealed a fall/winter lineup for its specialty properties and flagship Global that adds “Pamela’s Cookin’ With Love” to Food Network Canada, while a second season of Vancouver Island-based Anderson’s reno show “Pamela’s Garden of Eden” is set for winter on HGTV Canada. The show follows Anderson as she embarks on a massive restoration of her grandmother’s legacy property in Ladysmith.

Also heading to HGTV Canada are the Bryan and Sarah Baeumler docuseries “Building Baeumler,” Kristen Coutts’ “Beer Budget Reno,” and the fall luxury reno show “House of Ali” with Ali Budd.

History Channel boasts "Yukon Rescue," a new docuseries following an emergency response team, and "Sounds Black," a four-part documentary about the origins of Black music in Canada featuring Kardinal Offishall, Maestro Fresh Wes, Deborah Cox and more.

Global's homegrown scripted fare includes the B.C.-shot crime drama "Murder in a Small Town" with Vancouver's Rossif Sutherland and Kristin Kreuk, set for fall, and the mid-season return of the Victor Garber legal drama "Family Law."

Corus Entertainment's content boss says the media giant is leaning into lifestyles and reality fare after the CRTC eased rules around obligations to produce homegrown scripted drama and comedy.

Global's hip-hop drama "Robyn Hood," a reimagining of the Robin Hood tale by Director X that premiered last September, is not returning due to poor ratings, said Troy Reeb, executive vice president of networks and content.

Global's fall lineup includes U.S. imports delayed by last year's Hollywood actors and writers strikes, including CBS' gender-swapped "Matlock" starring Kathy Bates and the Damon Wayans comedy "Poppa's House," in which he plays a divorced radio host navigating his love life while parenting his adult son, played by Damon Wayans Jr.
