Ahead of its upfront presentation to media buyers on Thursday (June 9), Corus Entertainment unveiled Global’s fall schedule today.
Corus Entertainment has unveiled Global’s plan for the 2016-2017 television season today (June 7), ahead of their upfront presentation to media buyers on Thursday.
The Canadian network has picked up five new dramas for fall: Bull, Pitch, MacGyver, Pure Genius and Timeless, while spinoff’s Chicago Justice and Blacklist: Redemption will debut in early 2017. New comedies include Kevin James’ Kevin Can Wait, Matt LeBlanc’s Man With A Plan, Kristen Bell and Ted Danson’s The Good Place and Joel McHale’s The Great Indoors.
Global has also commissioned two new dramas for midseason: Ransom, a thriller produced with CBS and France’s TF1 starring Luke Roberts (Game of Thrones) and Mary Kills People starring Caroline Dhavernas (Hannibal) as a single mother and ER doctor who assists terminally ill patients who want to die on their own terms.
Reality fans rejoice as Global has also renewed Big Brother Canada for a fifth season!
As Supergirl moved from CBS to The CW in the U.S., look for the sophomore season to move over to Showcase from Global.
