    For Immediate Release



    TORONTO, June 5, 2017 – Today Global unveiled its 2017/18 primetime lineup featuring six new captivating and powerful dramas and four new coveted comedies joining 23 returning primetime series. With a solid 16 hours of weekly simulcast, Global’s fall schedule builds on the Network’s historic season last fall where Global celebrated #1 hit series for drama, reality, and comedy. Global is positioned for another powerhouse fall season with a robust schedule packed with unparalleled star power, entertaining and compelling storytelling, and buzz-worthy series.

    New dramas joining the fall schedule are SEAL Team, a military drama starring David Boreanaz (Bones) that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan, and execute the most dangerous missions; S.W.A.T., a series inspired by the 1970s television show, that stars Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) as a S.W.A.T. sergeant in Los Angeles; Wisdom of the Crowd starring Emmy® and Golden Globe® Award-winner Jeremy Piven (Entourage) as a visionary tech innovator who creates a cutting-edge crowdsourcing app to solve his daughter’s murder; The Brave, a fresh, heart-pounding drama that follows a team of highly trained analysts and Special Ops forces who work together to execute missions in some of the most dangerous places in the world; and Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders starring four-time Emmy® Award-winner Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie) as lead attorney Leslie Abramson, in this gripping in-depth dramatization of the notorious murder case that explores what drove two young brothers to kill their parents, examining their upbringing and issues that brought them to that horrible moment.

    Global’s comedy slate adds three new series this fall including the return of one of the most successful comedies in television history, Will & Grace. As home to the original hit series from 1998-2006, Global welcomes back the fearsome foursome including Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally, and executive producers Max Mutchnick, David Kohan, and legendary director James Burrows. Brand new comedy 9JKL stars Mark Feuerstein (Royal Pains) as an actor who’s newly single and returns home to live in an apartment sandwiched between his doting, meddlesome parents on one side and his brother, sister-in-law, and their new baby on the other. And Season 2 of Great News, an office comedy starring Nicole Richie (Candidly Nicole), and Canadian Andrea Martin (Working the Engels) as a stay-at-home mom who decides to return to work and lands an internship at her daughter’s news show.

    “On the heels of Global’s most successful fall season in a decade, this year we have strategically selected new series that build on the Network’s momentum, creating a schedule with the most outstanding series and the brightest stars,” said Maria Hale, Senior Vice President, Global Entertainment & Content Acquisition, Corus Entertainment. “Our 2017/18 lineup combines some of the most anticipated and sought-after new series including Will & Grace, S.W.A.T., SEAL Team, and Law & Order: True Crime, joining our impressive roster of returning hits like Bull, Kevin Can Wait, Survivor, and the NCIS franchise.”

    The new series joining Global’s schedule are teamed with a dynamite lineup of returning hits. Last fall’s #1 drama Bull* is back on the schedule along with last fall’s #1 new comedy Kevin Can Wait. Reaching more than 5.5 million Canadians every week last fall** the blockbuster NCIS franchise – including NCIS, NCIS: LA, and NCIS: New Orleans – returns, and the power of the franchise continues with Chicago Fire, Chicago PD heating up the schedule, with Chicago Med moving to mid-season. Following Season 34 which averaged more than 2 million viewers (2+) each week***, the perennial Top 10 program and last fall’s #1 reality series, Survivor returns with its 35th season titled Survivor: Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers. And freshman drama Taken comes back to the schedule joining Global’s Friday night lineup alongside Friday night’s #1 and #2 series MacGyver and Hawaii Five-0. Then, Canada’s #1 late-night series Saturday Night Live returns, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert – which saw a 9% growth in audience year over year*– continues weeknights on Global.

    Newly acquired series also join the Network’s mid-season schedule including Instinct, a drama starring Alan Cumming (The Good Wife) as a gifted author, university professor, and former CIA operative who is lured back to his old life by the NYPD when they need his help to stop a serial killer; and Superior Donuts, a comedy about the owner of a small doughnut shop that’s located in a quickly gentrifying Chicago neighbourhood. Viewers can catch up on Season 1 of Superior Donuts on CMT Canada this fall before Season 2 joins Global’s schedule in 2018. Rounding out Global’s mid-season lineup are additional returning series including fan-favourite Timeless, last fall’s #2 new comedy Man with a Plan, Season 3 of Jennifer Lopez’s gripping cop drama Shades of Blue, and Season 6 of the Sherlock Holmes procedural Elementary.

    Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders stars Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie).


    The Brave
    From Keshet Studios and Avi Nir (executive producer of Homeland) comes a fresh, heart-pounding journey into the complex world of America’s elite undercover military heroes. While D.I.A. Deputy Director Patricia Campbell (Anne Heche) and her team of analysts wield the world’s most advanced surveillance technology from Washington, D.C., Adam Dalton and his heroic Special Ops squad of highly trained undercover specialists use their unbreakable bond and commitment to freedom to save lives of innocent people and execute missions in some of the most dangerous places in the world.

    NEW COMEDIES

    Will & Grace
    That’s right, honey! A decade after their unforgettable eight-season run, comedy’s most fabulous foursome is back. Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Sean Hayes, and Megan Mullally reprise their infamous roles as Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen in this exclusive 12-episode event. The legendary James Burrows, director of every original Will & Grace episode, returns along with a slew of razor-sharp jabs and dirty martinis. Behold once again, from the minds of Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, TV’s wittiest ensemble ever.

    9JKL
    9JKL stars Mark Feuerstein in a family comedy inspired by his real life. Josh Roberts (Feuerstein) is a new divorcé and actor between projects who moves home to New York to regroup, living in an apartment sandwiched between his doting, meddlesome parents on one side and his brother, sister-in-law, and their new baby on the other. As Josh’s family literally comes at him from both sides, he realizes he desperately needs to establish some personal boundaries, because his loving family is always going to be right there for him. Always.

    9JKL stars Mark Feuerstein (Royal Pains) as Josh Roberts, Linda Lavin (The Intern) as Judy, Elliott Gould (Ray Donovan) as Harry, David Walton (Bad Moms) as Andrew, Liza Lapira (Crazy, Stupid, Love.) as Eve, Matt Murray (Rookie Blue) as Nick, and Albert Tsai (Dr. Ken) as Ian.


    Great News
    Getting along with office colleagues can be rough, but working with your mom? That’s a whole different story, and it’s the headline for Katie Wendelson (Briga Heelan), a smart, ambitious news producer at national cable news show The Breakdown. After 30 years of being a stay-at-home mom, Carol (Canadian Andrea Martin) decides that it’s never too late to follow your dreams and lands an internship at her daughter’s news show. This is Katie’s worst nightmare, until she comes to realize that with her biggest cheerleader at her side, she and her mom both might just make it after all. Sitting in the co-anchor chair at The Breakdown is Chuck Pierce (John Michael Higgins), the blowhard, difficult-to-please news desk veteran. Chuck intimidates everyone on staff except for Carol, who uses her polished mom skills to deal with him. Alongside him is Portia (Nicole Richie), the young, very hip co-host who brings a different perspective to old-fashioned journalism. Leading the news team is Greg (Adam Campbell), the dashing young executive producer. Katie’s closest friend at the office is Justin (Horatio Sanz), the laid back video editor who has seen it all and is always more than happy to dole out his zen-like advice. Rounding out the newsroom is Beth (Tracey Wigfield), the creepy resident meteorologist who is far from your stereotypical weather girl.

    Great News
    stars Briga Heelan (Love) as Katie, Andrea Martin (Working the Engels) as Carol, Adam Campbell (NCIS) as Greg, Nicole Richie (Candidly Nicole) as Portia, Horatio Sanz (Saturday Night Live) as Justin, and John Michael Higgins (Yes Man) as Chuck.



    MID-SEASON:

    Instinct
    Instinct stars Alan Cumming as a former CIA operative who is lured back to his old life when the NYPD needs his help to stop a serial killer. Dr. Dylan Reinhart (Cumming) is a gifted author and university professor living a quiet life teaching psychopathic behaviour to packed classes of adoring students. But when top NYPD detective Lizzie Needham (Bojana Novakovic) appeals to him to help her catch a serial murderer who is using Dylan’s first book as a tutorial, Dylan is compelled by the case, comes out of retirement, and taps into his old skill set. Though Dylan and Lizzie initially clash, when it comes to catching killers, they realize they will make an ideal team if they both trust their instincts.

    Instinct stars Alan Cumming (The Good Wife) as Dr. Dylan Reinhart and Bojana Novakovic (Shameless) as Lizzie Needham.


    Superior Donuts
    Based on the play by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning writer Tracy Letts, Superior Donuts stars Judd Hirsch as an owner of a doughnut shop in Chicago who, after a half-century in business, hires young go-getter Franco who is bent on freshening the shop. With his business in jeopardy, Arthur grudgingly realizes that he had better embrace the change around him and that Franco could be exactly what he – and the doughnut shop – need to thrive.

    Superior Donuts stars Judd Hirsch (Independence Day) as Arthur Przybyszewski, Jermaine Fowler (Friends of People) as Franco Wicks, and Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy) as Randy DeLuca.

    Early observations:

    - Global acquired the Law & Order: True Crime series but appears to have dropped The Blacklist, which is likely bound for City.

    - They're going with a full NBC lineup in simulcast on Thursdays at least for the early part of the fall, and an entirely CBS lineup on Sunday nights with The Simpsons again in pre-release. Makes sense for them to put NCIS: New Orleans in pre-release on Monday nights, as that is one of the NCIS shows that can work anywhere out of simulcast.

    - Of the ten new titles Global acquired for next season, they are from CBS and NBC. None from ABC, FOX and The CW (one of their new shows went to W). Two of them are returning shows but new to broadcast in Canada - sitcoms Superior Donuts and Great News. We already know that Bell Media (CTV and CTV Two) got most of the new ABC shows, so it figures that Rogers Media (City) probably ended up walking away with all the new ones from FOX (except for The Gifted which went to CTV), as part of their deal with the 20th Century FOX production studio.

    Not quite, CTV has picked up The Gifted which is a Fox show. I was thinking Global would get it but looks like CTV snatched it away. I am surprised that Global did not pick up The Orville, a new sci-fi show staring that McFarlane guy that has created several of the animated series that air on Fox.

    I have corrected the statement in my original post. I meant to say all the new ones from FOX (except for The Gifted) but you spotted it before I did.

    I'm not surprised that CTV picked up The Gifted, seeing how it fits in with their lineup of existing Marvel shows including the new series Inhumans. Global used to air all the FOX animated series including Family Guy, If that was still the case, it would have walked away with The Orville, but it fits in more with City. Global already has their Thursday night lineup full with all the NBC shows in simulcast. Of course, come November, they will have gaps to fill once Thursday Night Football returns to NBC.

    The Gifted is also co-produce with Marvel Television which is obviously part of Disney/ABC so that might come with ABC package

    - Global grabbed NBC's Great News for a continuous NBC-thursday comedy lineup simsub, but no plans revealed on airing season 1.
    - Global grabbed CBS's Superior Donuts, but since it's scheduled to premiere Oct 30th, and CTV grabbed the 9:30pm show Me Myself & I, NCIS:NO in pre-release is safe for a month until either ratings for L&O:TC is due for a downgrade or NBC shuffles its schedule again, and NCIS:NO goes back in simsub. But... Superior's season 1 will air on W Network...
    - When Glee no longer pulled ratings, Global handed-it-down to Citytv. When Fox scheduled Bones's last season on already-busy tuesdays, Global handed it down to Citytv. Next season, NBC moves The Blacklist to the difficult wednesday 8pm slot against CBS's Survivor, signing its death certificate, Global handed it down to City despite average Top-20 Numeris ratings.
    - With all sunday-to-friday 8pm to 11pm slots taken by american shows, and the occasional CBS saturday crimetime simsub, there will be a weekly cancon quota balance problem... And Border Security is supposed to be cancelled, so sunday 7pm should be all-reruns.
    - Also : As of writing this, Sunday night lineup disappeared from Corus's announcement at the link above.

    Any small wonder, between getting CTV and Global's castoffs and programming Cancon reruns and documentary shows from Vice, why City is considered Canada's third-tier network, behind CTV (#1) and Global (#2)?

    If Global does get to airing Season 1, they'll probably find room for it later in the summer or just make the episodes available for streaming on their website.

    Actually, season 1 of Superior Donuts will be showing on CMT Canada, according to the press release.

    Survivor would pull in better ratings for Global at this point over The Blacklist. Had they not picked up the Law & Order: True Crime series, they could have aired it in pre-release Tuesday at 10:00pm. Another possibility would have been to air it in pre-release at 7:00pm but probably risky and not worth it based on the declining ratings as of late.

    It's back up and available once again. Must have been removed by accident.

    So NBC is pushing Taken to midseason. So that gives them space for Cancon or whatever shows does not have space elsewhere.

    Possibility of course would be Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

    You're being too optimistic. If Global don't have a 1-hour low-ratings out-of-simsub, non-CW show, they'll surely opt for the good old cancon filler Border Security !

    On the same day, NBC released this...


    NBC has fine-tuned a pair of timeslots for fall premiere:

    WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 20 AT 10 P.M. (New date and time)

    "The Good Place" will launch its second season with a special one-hour episode immediately following the two-hour season finale of "America's Got Talent."

    "The Good Place" will air in its regularly scheduled timeslot at 8:30 p.m. Thursday the following week on Sept. 28.

    Well CBS just announced a Celebrity Big Brother for this Winter. That probably won't make Global happy as it may interfered with their Big Brother Canada. Since CBS will be condensed I assumed it will be early January before Survivor starts.

    On Oct 1st, 2017, CBS has football overruns, meaning 60 Minutes starts at 7:30, Wisdom of the Crowd premiere at 8:30pm, NCIS:LA premiere at 9:30pm, and a Code Black rerun at 10:30pm. As you can see above, Global ignores CBS schedule and a Madam Secretary rerun is scheduled at 10pm, but it premieres only the following week.

    What I expected Global to do instead...
    7 & 7:30pm Border Security
    8pm Simpsons (s-Fox)
    8:30 Wisdom (s-CBS) + wait for the simsub
    9:30 NCIS:LA (s-CBS)
    10:30 a disposable Border Security episode
    11pm Local News from Toronto HQ
