CBC has commissioned a new reality competition series from marblemedia that pits contestants against mother nature. Race Against the Tide is a 10 x 30-minute sand-sculpting competition series where world-class sculptors create works of art in New Brunswick’s Bay of Fundy before the high tide from the Atlantic Ocean comes in and washes it away. It will be hosted by This Hour Has 22 Minutes actor and comedian Shaun Majumder (pictured), while the expert judges will be announced at a later date.
The series is now in production in New Brunswick and set for broadcast on CBC in 2021. Production is working with the province’s government and public health officials, as well as Tourism New Brunswick and Worksafe NB, to adhere to local COVID-19 protocols.
Race Against the Tide is co-produced with New Brunswick-based prodco Hemmings House. Marblemedia co-founders Matt Hornburg and Mark Bishop serve as executive producers, Carly Spencer is series producer and writer, while Donna Luke is co-executive producer.
