    MTV Canada / CTV's "4real" to air on The CW this fall

    As most of you may already know, The CW has given up on programming Sundays this fall, they have handed the night over to another company, Media Rights Capital, to produce and schedule The CW's Sunday night lineup. Media Rights Capital get's all the money from ads, and must fund the lineup themselfs, The CW pretty much has nothing to do with the Sunday night lineup, they only air it.

    Well Media Rights Capital has announced that they will air reruns of CTV/MTV Canada's 4real on Sundays at 6:00PM & 6:30PM.

    I would be shocked if A didn't simulcast this. Right now A Barrie has the Sunday 6:30PM slot for "TBA Canadian" so it looks likely that A will be simulcasting this. A Vancouver Island right now has Sue Thomas F.B. Eye scheduled from 6:00PM-7:00PM on Sundays, so it would be pretty easy for them to simulcast the 4real reruns from 6-7pm as well.

    CTV’s 4REAL Gets U.S. Network Television Premiere on The CW

    – Becomes seventh CTV series to be broadcast in the U.S. –

    Toronto, ON (August 8, 2008) – CTV announced today that its inspiring eight-part documentary program 4REAL has become the latest original Canadian series to be picked up for broadcast on U.S. network television. 4REAL will premiere Sept. 21 as part of The CW’s new Sunday night line up. The announcement follows a deal between Media Rights Capital (MRC) and Vancouver’s Direct Current Media, producers of the series in association with CTV and MTV Canada.

    4REAL is the fourth CTV series this year to be picked up for U.S. broadcast, joining Flashpoint (CBS), The Listener (NBC), and Spectacle: Elvis Costello with… (Sundance Channel). 4REAL brings the total number of CTV original series airing in the United States to seven, along with Degrassi: The Next Generation (The N), Corner Gas (WGN) and MTV Canada’s The Hills After Show (MTV U.S.).

    “4REAL is about change, and this U.S. pick-up makes the possibility for change even greater,” said Susanne Boyce, President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. “We are immensely proud of this series. Congratulations to Sol and Josh as 4REAL continues to inspire viewers around the world.”

    “In its first year, 4REAL is being broadcast in almost every market in the world,” said co-creator and 4REAL host Sol Guy. “It's a real testament to the power and inspiration of the leaders featured in the series, and their stories."

    4REAL is currently airing on various National Geographic channels internationally. It has been seen in 166 countries in 35 languages. The series can be viewed now on demand at mtv.ca.

    Originally broadcast earlier this year on CTV and MTV, 4REAL calls attention to international social issues and fosters cultural awareness as celebs journey to some of the most heartbreaking places on earth. Episodes feature 4REAL executive producer Joaquin Phoenix in Brazil, Cameron Diaz in Peru, Red Hot Chili Pepper bassist Flea in Haiti, Eva Mendes visiting Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, and more.
    This past April, 4REAL received international recognition when producers and co-creators Sol Guy and Josh Thome were honored as the first Canadians to receive the National Geographic Emerging Explorers Award for their work on the series. This award recognizes and supports uniquely gifted explorers who are already making a difference early in their careers.

    In celebration of Guy and Thome’s unique sustainable profit sharing business model, 4REAL has also been screened at the United Nations in New York as part of the UN's permanent forum on indigenous issues.

    4REAL is produced by Direct Current Media (DCM), in association with CTV for CTV and MTV. 4REAL is hosted by award-winning producer and co-creator Sol Guy. Josh Thome is co-creator. Executive Producers of 4REAL are Joaquin Phoenix, Chris Haddock and Laura Lightbown. Susanne Boyce is President, Creative, Content and Channels, CTV Inc. More details on the series are available at 4REAL.com and mtv.ca.

    'A' has just confirmed that they will simulcast 4Real with the CW beginning Sept 21.. I'm not sure about 'A' Atlantic but Barrie will simulcast 1 show 6:30pm-7pm ET and Victoria will simulcast both shows 6pm-7pm PT.

    4Real will only air on 'A' Barrie in Onatrio.

    Well, MRC announced today that 4REAL will now air back to back episodes Sundays at 5:00PM and 5:30PM, starting October 5th. So it looks like A will be simulcasting this at 5 now.
