The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is teaming up with Paperny Entertainment to bring a popular UK format to Canada.

This is High School, a 6 x 60-minute series slated to debut in the fall of 2016, is based on Twofour Group’s Educating franchise, which includes such projects as Educating Essex, Educating Yorkshire and Educating the East End. The CBC series, following the trials and tribulations in a British Columbia high school, is being billed by the Canadian pubcaster as “a love letter to teachers, celebrating the amazing work and downright heroism that educators bring to their job every day.” Paperny Entertainment produces, and Endemol Shine International will shop the Canadian series globally.
