Discover The Magic Behind Everyday Creature Comforts On Cineflix’s All-New Series Home Factory

Cineflix announced today that it has kicked off production on another new series. Commissioned by HGTV Canada and slated to air on the network in Spring 2015, Home Factory takes viewers into the mega factories to marvel at the machines and meet the unsung heroes who produce the creature comforts people just can’t live without.

“HGTV Canada is committed to telling stories about Canadians and their homes, and with Home Factory on our schedule, we go one step further,” said Christine Shipton, Senior Vice President, Content, Shaw Media. “Using the Food Factory format that proved so successful, Home Factory rounds out the network’s focus by exploring the people and processes behind our favourite comforts.”

Produced by Cineflix, the 14x30 series will take viewers on a whirlwind behind-the-scenes tour through some of the most incredible industrial production facilities in North America.  Each episode will feature four everyday household items, giving viewers a look at the materials, technology, and manpower that go into creating these products. Infused with fascinating facts and anecdotes from the men and women on the factory floor, Home Factory reveals that the objects often considered ordinary are in fact anything but.

“The comfy recliner at the end of a long day, the rubber toys at bath time, even the bulb in your desk lamp—whether they’re fun, functional or both – Home Factory will show how these amazing items go from raw materials to the factory floor and finally into your home,” said Philip Whelan, Executive Producer, Cineflix.

Home Factory is a Cineflix (Home Factory) Inc. production, in association with Shaw Media. Philip Whelan is one of the Executive Producers for Cineflix. Home Factory builds on the successful Food Factory franchise—a format created by Shaw Media for Food Network Canada—and is distributed internationally by Cineflix Rights.
