TORONTO, CANADA (January 16, 2019) – marblemedia, a global, award-winning production company committed to delivering premium content, is pleased to confirm that it’s hit family game show Just Like Mom and Dad will now also be available across Canada on CTV.

A remake of the Canadian family classic series Just Like Mom, which ran over 600 episodes over five seasons from 1980 to 1985 on CTV, Just Like Mom and Dad is a newly re-imagined kids & family game show that brings back some of the most loved elements of the original series with a number of exciting new additions. Just Like Mom and Dad originally launched on YES TV in Canada and BYUtv in the USA in October 2017, and continues to premiere new episodes weekly, hosted by husband and wife duo Kylee Evans and Sandy Jobin-Bevans.
“We’re very excited to confirm that Just Like Mom and Dad will be returning to where the series began,” says Mark Bishop, Co-CEO, marblemedia. “Originally produced at CTV’s Agincourt studios in Toronto, Just Like Mom and Dad was created to bring back fun, family moments and we’re looking forward to reaching new co-viewing audiences, including parents like me who remember watching the original series with their families on CTV.”
Each episode of Just Like Mom and Dad features three teams of parent-kid pairs that are all trying to accumulate the most points after three rounds of family fun. The first two rounds include asking and answering personal questions that puts the family dynamic to the test. A third round features the infamous “Bake Off” and “Taste Test” where the kids whip up a dish (with some surprise ingredients!) they hope their parents will love. The parents must taste these culinary creations and guess which dish was prepared by their child, and the winners move on to spin the big prize wheel!
Just Like Mom and Dad is available to North American families anywhere, anytime with the newly launched Just Like Mom and Dad Google Home game. Based off the hilarious and fun-filled game show that celebrates and rewards families for how well they know each other, the Just Like Mom and Dad Google Home Action, “Ok Google, talk to Just Like Mom and Dad”, offers fans three play rounds of hands-free family fun that they can enjoy together, at home!
