“It was Ilana Frank though, who invited me to come along and work with her on her new show Rookie Blue. And that was my entrance into the TV world. I love television. I always have. I grew up in an age where no one dreamed about working in television. Everyone wanted to work on a movie–that was the dream. And now, the pendulum has swung the other way and I’m thrilled. To have the opportunity to work with writers and actors who get to create and play characters that are developed over years, and to watch audiences follow along with fervour, is incredibly satisfying.” Continue reading.

CTV marks Saving Hope and MasterChef Canada return dates

From a media release:

Bolstering a previously announced Winter 2017 schedule, CTV revealed today its full midseason lineup, featuring more star power, new comedies and dramas, hit returning favourites, and live, big ticket special events.

In the newest addition to CTV’s midseason schedule, TRIAL & ERROR, true crime and mockumentary collide in John Lithgow’s (3RD ROCK FROM THE SUN, DEXTER) return to primetime television (March 7). The series goes into the heart of a quirky, small Southern town to follow the arrest and murder trial of a beloved poetry professor (Lithgow) and a young “Northeastern” lawyer (Nicholas D’Agosto, GOTHAM) hired to defend him.

Paired with the co-viewing, four-quadrant blockbuster vocal competition series THE VOICE, the fish-out-of-water comedy joins CTV’s Tuesday night lineup alongside MARVEL’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Also joining CTV’s 2017 midseason schedule is the series premiere of Kevin Williamson’s (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES) fantastical cat and mouse adventure series TIME AFTER TIME (March 5).

CTV’s hit culinary series MASTERCHEF CANADA serves up an all-new fourth season Thursday nights with another helping of food-driven drama (March 2). The all-new powerhouse Thursday night lineup also features previously announced new series POWERLESS (Feb. 2) and TRAINING DAY (Feb. 2), and perennial blockbuster THE BIG BANG THEORY.

The much-anticipated fifth and final season of CTV’s hit original drama SAVING HOPE (March 12) joins TIME AFTER TIME (March 5), as both series anchor the network’s Sunday night lineup.

On Tuesday, March 7, the season finale of this season’s breakout hit THIS IS USairs at a special time, 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV. Tuesdays also sees the pairing of hit series THE FLASH with DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW on CTV Two, in a new two-hour superhero block (Feb. 28).

Following CARDINAL’s six-part event run (Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV), March also sees the return of the fall’s most-watched new series DESIGNATED SURVIVOR* starring Kiefer Sutherland (March 8). Meanwhile, the sophomore season of THE CATCH settles into its new home on CTV Two (March 9).

Plus, Phil Keoghan and a new batch of racers return as the long-awaited all-new 29th season of multi-EMMY Award-winning THE AMAZING RACE returns with a two-hour premiere on CTV (April 21).

CTV is also home to big ticket live events and star wattage specials this winter with SUPER BOWL LI (Feb. 5), THE 89th ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARDS® (Feb. 26), and THE 2017 JUNO AWARDS (April 2), while the IHEARTRADIO MUSIC AWARDS airs on CTV Two March 5.
