Fans of medical programs can tune in to see Hugh Laurie as an eccentric medical genius in House, M.D. or catch the Canadian supernatural medical drama Saving Hope. For those more intrigued by crime solving and courtroom battles, the first season of Law and Order: SVU debuts on AMI-tv while all new Murdoch Mysteries returns for season nine. Other returning favourites include Matlock and new seasons of both W5 and The Fifth Estate while additional Canadian programs include Degrassi: The Next Generation and Trailer Park Boys.

Weekend movies will continue with Friday Night Lights, Ray and Inside Man among those lined up for the coming year and sports fans can enjoy an exciting September as the red hot Blue Jays continue to fight for a playoff spot with AMI’s live described Major League Baseball.

AMI is also proud to continue to produce engaging and entertaining original programming as AMI This Week returns with a fresh new look while Sports Access, Four Senses and Canada in Perspective are all back for brand new seasons.

5 Favourite Murdoch Mysteries Inventions

Slide show: Fan Day at Murdoch Mysteries

Last weekend was a big one for Murdoch Mysteries fans. Thousands attended Saturday and Sunday’s sold-out ticketed events at the show’s Toronto main stage, where everyone not only had access to some of the sets but the series’ stars as well.

Yannick Bisson, Jonny Harris, Hélène Joy, Arwen Humphreys, Thomas Craig and Peter Keleghan were among the cast available for photos, prop master Craig Grant provided laughs as he zipped guests around in the Pendrick Bullet and the doors were opened to the morgue, constabulary, William and Julia’s hotel room and the expansive backlot.

Take a peek at some of the items we saw during our two-hour visit.
