TORONTO - Calling on all extroverted Canadians who aren't precious about their privacy.

Shaw Media and Insight Productions plan to hold a nation-wide open casting call for the inaugural season of the reality series "Big Brother Canada" this fall.

Based on the long-running hit American show, the program will see people living together in a house outfitted with video cameras that capture their every move.

The house guests will also compete in challenges and vote each other out until one person wins a grand prize.

Starting this Wednesday, Canadians 19 years and older can apply online to be on the show.

Open casting calls will also be held in several cities, starting Sept. 23 in Vancouver, followed by Calgary, Halifax, Montreal and Toronto.

"Big Brother Canada" is scheduled to air on Slice in winter 2013.

"I've never had so many people contact me about participating in a TV show in my entire career," John Brunton, chairman and CEO at Insight Production Company Ltd., said in a statement.

"Canada's whipped up into a frenzy over Big Brother Canada."

The American version of "Big Brother," now into its 14th season, airs on Global.
