RTR Media Inc. is celebrating the new year with a nod from the Canadian Screen Awards for the hit series Income Property on HGTV Canada. Income Property with host Scott McGillivary  is vying for an award in the Best Lifestyle Series category.

Income Property marks the launch of its seventh season on HGTV US on January 29th at 9pm ET and HGTV Canada on January 31st at 9pm ET/PT.  This season Income Property is expanding to a full hour as Scott McGillivray takes each potential homeowner through an exciting house hunt for income properties before overhauling their space into a dream rental suite.  RTR Media Inc. is delighted to report that the hit series has been renewed for an eighth season and will begin production starting in February.

“RTR Media enters its tenth year of production with a robust slate spearheaded by the early renewal of our hit series Income Property.  Scott McGillivray, host, co-executive producer and co-owner of the series is thrilled with the continued support from the public and HGTV in Canada and the United States,” exclaims Kit Redmond, CEO and owner of RTR Media Inc.

RTR Media Inc. is growing its production slate and recently premiered the Citizen Skull Inc. co-production, Mother of The Bride (13 x 30 mins) on Slice on January 4th.  Mother of the Bride takes us inside the drama that ignites when mom tries to find a stunning gown for one of the most important days of her life.

Things continue to heat up with production at RTR Media Inc. with the upcoming series of BBQ Crawl (10 x 30 mins), a mouth watering road trip that follows a world champion BBQ competitor, Danielle Dimovski (a.k.a. DIVA-Q)  as she eats and competes her way through the American south. BBQ Crawl will air on Travel + Escape this May.
