TORONTO – Cue the catfights: Indie producer Lark Productions is casting for a Real Housewives of Toronto series.

Vancouver-based Lark, led by former CTV development head Louise Clark and with a development deal with NBC Universal in hand, in February first put out the call for connected Canadian women to summon their inner-Bethenny Frankel for a local spin-off series.

The U.S. Real Housewives franchise airs here on the Slice channel.

Lark said the Canadian Real Housewives reality series has not yet been green lit, and is still in the early stages of casting.
