the end is surely nigh

Hat tip: Samantha Burns

Yep, it's a Canadian reality TV show entitled The Next Great Prime Minister. (Be aware, this page seems to take An Ice Age to load). Apparently they are basically turning an existing concept into a show for the small screen, as the competition itself has been around for a decade already in some form or another.

It sounds like a similar concept to Trump's The Apprentice, with four ex-PMs judging and an internship with a Canadian public policy think-tank as the ultimate prize. However at this stage it is a one-off special, rather than a full series.
