Trevor Boris has come a long way from the farm he grew up on near Winnipeg, MB to become one of the most sought-after reality, competition, and format TV producers in the industry. Currently, Trevor is the CSA award-winning Showrunner and Executive Producer of Canada’s Drag Race, now going into its third season airing on CRAVE, BBC Three, and in over 100 countries on WOW Presents Plus.

Trevor has also served as an Executive Producer on Big Brother Canada (9 seasons) where he is one of the creative driving forces behind the show’s themes, challenges, integrations and twists. His work on BBCAN lead him to also work on Big Brother USA and Big Brother UK, and was even invited to Poland recently to give a keynote address on the future of the format to Big Brother producers from around the world by Endemol. He has also produced numerous other high profile shows including Paradise Hotel (FOX), Hockey Wives, Canada’s Got Talent and has worked for the NHL producing entertainment for their outdoor and All Stars games.

Before his life as a TV producer, Trevor was one of the most successful comedians in the country. Known from his 9 seasons as one of the stars on MuchMusic’s Video on Trial, Trevor has also appeared on Conan and has filmed comedy specials for CTV, LOGO, and a DVD for Warner Music.
