    New Original Crime Dramas Hudson & Rex and The Murders

    New Original Crime Dramas Hudson & Rex and The Murders Headline Must-See Monday Nights on Citytv, Beginning March 25

    TORONTO (March 4, 2019) – Viewers won’t have a hard time picking these two out of a lineup. Boasting all-Canadian casts, new Citytv original seriesHudson & Rex – starring John Reardon (Van Helsing, Continuum) – andThe Murders – starring Jessica Lucas ( Gotham, Cloverfield) – are bringing the drama to Monday nights, beginning March 25 at 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. ET/PT, respectively.

    Full episodes and exciting extras are available on Citytv.com next day post-broadcast, as well as on Rogers on Demand, and the authenticated Citytv App for iOS, Android, and fourth-generation Apple TV.

    Hudson & Rex , produced by Shaftesbury and Pope Productions Ltd., in association with Citytv and Beta Film, is a 16-part action-packed police-procedural drama set in St. John’s, Nfld. The series follows the partnership between cunning Major Crimes detective, Charlie Hudson (Reardon), and his partner, Rex (canine Diesel vom Burgimwald), a German Shepherd with heightened senses and formerly with the K-9 police unit. In the premiere episode, Rex proves himself as a member of the Major Crimes team when he tails a kidnapper; and the clock is ticking as Charlie and the team realize the abduction is part of an elaborate plan. Based on the Austrian drama Inspector Rex, Hudson & Rex also stars Mayko Nguyen (Killjoys) as Doctor Sarah Truong, Kevin Hanchard (Orphan Black) as Superintendent Joe Donovan and Justin Kelly (Wynonna Earp) as Tech Analyst Jesse Mills.

    The Murders , produced by Muse Entertainment, in association with Citytv, and distributed internationally by APC and NBCUniversal, is an eight-part police-procedural crime drama set in Vancouver. Created by Canadian showrunner Damon Vignale, The Murders features an episodic case of the week that follows Kate Jameson (Lucas), a rookie homicide detective who searches for redemption in her investigative work after her negligence is the cause of a tragedy. In the pilot episode, Jameson partners with Detective Mike Huntley (Lochlyn Munro, Riverdale) as they navigate the case of a mysterious serial killer who uses music for destructive ends. The Murders features dynamic additional cast members, including Dylan Bruce (Orphan Black) as Detective Nolan Wells, Terry Chen (The Expanse) as Staff Sergeant Bill Chen and Luvia Petersen ( Ghost Wars) as Detective Meg Harris.

    2 originals same night. This sure went quickly, this was just announced not too long ago.

    Just too bad they are putting a show against another Canadian drama on CBC. There are so few of them, they could try scheduling them not facing one another.

    Mondays are a b---h !
    Those new cancons airs against Idol on ABC, Voice on NBC, Resident+911 on Fox, Neighbors+Man w/Plan+Magnum on CBS, Legends+Arrow on The CW.

    I understand Citytv has nothing to simulcast on mondays, so it's an idea to fill up the night with originals instead of 3 hours of Mom reruns. But there's just too many shows at the same time. OK, there's the basketball thing, a few US reruns until the end of april with new episodes for the may sweeps, while the CBC enters hockey playoffs, but it's not a good opportunity here if they wanted to achieve good 1st run ratings.
    I don't know, Citytv heavily promotes Orville on thursdays, ABC's Million Little Things at 10pm just ended, maybe Murders could have been scheduled there due to subject matter.

    But hey, it's Rogers, once those 1st run of those shows will be done, they'll hammer the hell out of those as cancon fillers over the summer and fall + on FX, FXX, and probably OLN too (!).

    I think Hudson & Rex could be some what of a success but The Murders I think will be a complete flop.

    According to the producers web site it is 16, but I think they are splitting it on Citytv for this season.

    The Murders has 8.

    Also just realized that new episodes are actually first on FXX Sunday nights.
