TORONTO - Canada is getting its own The Bachelor reality TV series in Fall 2012.
Force Four Entertainment will produce nine episodes of The Bachelor Canada, to air on the Citytv network, which already airs the U.S.-originating The Bachelor franchise, now in its 16th season.
The Canadian version will be based on the U.S. series from Next Entertainment, produced in association with Warner Horizon Television.

Production on The Bachelor Canada is set to start this spring.
