Toronto, ON – Canada’s FIRST Black family reality show, Auntie Jillian stole the hearts of viewers and gave them plenty of laughs on Bell Fibe TV1 in their debut season, making it the top-rated show. The celebration of a successful Season One and the green light for a second season takes place on Sunday August 25th, 2019 from 1 to 5pm at The Avenue Restaurant and Lounge, 1085 Bellamy Road North in Scarborough with cast, crew, fans and family.
Breakout reality star Jillian Danford, her husband Warren and kids, Myles and Milan opened their Ajax, Ontario home to cameras where they embrace Canadian culture while nurturing and celebrating their Caribbean roots. Auntie Jillian’s weekly viewership on Bell Fibe reached a peak of 22 000, the number 1 show during its season and remaining in the Top 3 on the platform. From the hilarious episode of their misshaped tent while camping to the episode where things “go up in marijuana smoke” with Jillan’s parents, Auntie Jillian kept audiences excited to see what other trouble of fun the Danfords would encounter each week.
“We are thrilled that Bell Fibe TV1 has decided to pick us up for another season. Our family is relatable, and I think that’s why people watch. We have the same problems as every Canadian family, but with a Caribbean twist that brings the jokes,” says Auntie Jillian. “We can’t wait to bring it once again for Season Two. It’s a Real Ting!”
