Share Article

Justice Harvey Brownstone, Canada's most well-known judge, surprised TV executives last week with the launch of his family law talk show, Family Matters. The show generated a huge buzz last week when the show was announced in an article by Kirk Makin of the Globe and Mail. "TV viewers want and need this kind of information. I created this show to help democratize family law so that everyone would have access to the legal information they need to make good decisions," said Nancy Kinney, executive producer of the show. "We're looking for a permanent home for this already popular and universal show," she added.

Family Matters, AdviceScene’s new show, airs its first episode starting Tuesday, September 13th 2011 in Canada and soon the US too.

Family Matters is produced by CHEK TV, and will air on CHEK Victoria/Vancouver, CHCH Hamilton, and CFJC Kamloops. The first show of its kind, Family Matters exposes how current issues that affect Canadian relationships - internet dating, sex addiction, mental illness and more - are leading families into dramatic litigation battles, and how these issues affect the outcomes in court.

Family Matters walks the line between education and entertainment in a compelling talk show format. Not only will audiences be treated to an in-depth look at issues that cause family strife, but they'll hear from guest experts we usually never see in the media spotlight.

The show features Canada’s most well-known judge, Justice Harvey Brownstone. Justice Brownstone, the foremost expert on educating Canadians about family law, gives an astonishing insight into the problems raised when families collapse and turn to the courts for help. His flamboyant personality, praised with helping him to become Canada’s most outspoken judge, will charm and captivate audiences.

Justice Brownstone is no stranger to the camera. Before producing Family Matters, he starred in an internet talk show where he cultivated a loyal following. Family Matters also follows on the heels of Justice Brownstone’s book, Tug Of War. His book sheds light on the pain families go through as they turn to litigation to settle their family strife - often worsening the situation and racking up steep legal fees in the process. The moral Tug Of War: litigation should be used only as a last resort in family law circumstances. Justice Brownstone’s book educates Canadians about the alternatives to settling in court, and backs up this moral with hair-raising stories from the trenches of family litigation.

Family Matters is an evolution of the riveting stories of Tug Of War, and the guest expertise cultivated in Justice Brownstone’s internet talk show series. With its compelling blend of tension, stories, and education, Family Matters will keep viewers on the edge of their seats.
