CTV signs five new big buzz series

CTV has acquired five new, big-buzz, big-name network series to complement its already robust catalogue of new programming for mid-season.

The five new series join a schedule led by the premiere of Season 7 of Canada’s No. 1 reality series American Idol, on Tuesday, Jan. 15. Also on tap for the 2008 are four blockbuster special events, including The 80th Annual Academy Awards and Super Bowl XLII.

CTV also revealed a slate of seven original Canadian movies and mini-series set to premiere in 2008, including the world premiere of Mayerthorpe, the intense dramatization of the 2005 RCMP tragedy.

"Returning hits, hot new series and TV’s biggest special events – fresh programming rings in the new year on CTV," said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc.

CTV’s mid-season acquisitions include the movie-inspired action series ‘Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles’; ‘Dancing with the Stars’ spin-off ‘Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann’; the hot new drama series ‘Eli Stone’, starring Jonny Lee Miller; the new reality series ‘Oprah Winfrey’s The Big Give’, from Harpo productions and The Amazing Race Executive Producer Bertram van Muster; and the much-anticipated, big buzz drama series ‘Lipstick Jungle’, based on the Candace Bushnell book and starring Brook Shields. All three drama series are currently in post-production.

Also returning in 2008 with all new episodes are ‘Lost’, ‘Law & Order’, ‘Corner Gas’, ‘Nip/Tuck’, ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation’, ‘Robson Arms’ and ‘Instant Star’. New cycles of hit series ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and ‘So You Think You Can Dance?’ are also expected to debut before the end of the 2007/2008 television season.
