    Dan Levy & Julia Chan on The Great Canadian Baking Show

    Senior Arts Editor Mark Wigmore speaks with The Great Canadian Baking Show hosts Dan Levy & Julia Chan.

    WHO: Dan Levy & Julia Chan 

    : The Great Canadian Baking Show

    : CBC Television

    : Wednesday nights at 8 pm.





    THE GREAT CANADIAN BAKING SHOW will bring together 10 amateur bakers from across Canada to compete in a series of themed culinary challenges.

    In every episode, they'll face three nail-biting rounds: the Signature Bake, the Technical Bake and the Show Stopper.

    Each week, the competitor who shows the most skill, creativity, and finesse will be named Star Baker, while the weakest will be sent home until only three finalists are left vying for the Great Canadian Baking Show title.


    Daniel Levy began his television career as co-host of MTV Canada's flagship show MTV Live and later co-wrote, co-hosted and co-produced the critically-acclaimed ratings hit The After Show. Levy also wrote, produced and starred in his own Christmas special for MTV, Daniel Levy's Holi-Do's & Don'ts and co-hosted the MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet, the X-Factor pre-show and national coverage of the Vancouver Olympic Games for CTV. In 2013, Levy formed Not A Real Company Productions (with his father Eugene Levy and principals Andrew Barnsley and Fred Levy) to produce Schitt's Creek, a half-hour comedy for CBC/ITV. 

    Levy is the co-creator, executive producer, and writer of Schitt's Creek and stars alongside Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Annie Murphy and Chris Elliott. In March 2016, Levy won the Best Writing in a Comedy Series award at the Canadian Screen Awards (CSA) and, as Executive Producer, shared the CSA for Best Comedy.  He was also nominated for Lead Actor in a Comedy. Schitt's Creek swept the Canadian Screen Awards, winning nine of a possible 10 categories, including Lead Actress in a Comedy (Catherine O'Hara); Lead Actor in a Comedy (Eugene Levy); Best Direction in a Comedy (Paul Fox); Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy (Chris Elliott); and Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy (Emily Hampshire).
