NEW SHOWS THIS FALL:
“Blood Ties” – Citytv
“Blood Ties” follows the misadventures of Vicki Nelson, a feisty, attractive, 29-year old ex-cop turned private investigator with a degenerative eye disorder, who seems destined to sit on the sidelines until fate intervenes. After witnessing a terrifying murder, she finds herself on a collision course with a stranger who is also investigating the murder. He is Henry Fitzroy, a 450-year old vampire who just happens to be the bastard son of King Henry VIII. After solving the murder, Vicki finds her forays into supernatural crime are anything but over. Week after week, Vicki’s relationship with Henry draws her into baffling cases involving a terrifying pantheon of occult adversaries. Forget fraud investigations and cheating spouses – she’s squaring off against ghosts, goblins and ghouls. Vicki and Henry’s unlikely alliance soon progresses beyond a purely professional arrangement, complicating her relationship with her long-suffering ex-partner in policing and love, Detective Mike Celluci – and pretty well everything else in her life. Starring Christina Cox as Vicki Nelson, Dylan Neal (“Dawson’s Creek”) as Mike Celluci and Kyle Schmid (“The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”) as Henry Fitzroy.
“Terminal City” – Citytv
This Gemini-nominated 10-part series looks at the modern family through twin lenses of cancer and reality television. The series seeks to uncover the truth about ourselves, emotionally and sexually, as we confront fear with comedy, adulation with loss, and life with death. Stars Maria del Mar, Gil Bellows, Katie Boland, Adam Butcher and Paul Soles who received a 2006 Gemini Award for his role.
“Across The River To Motor City” – Citytv
“Across the River to Motor City” is a mystery series spanning two eras, two countries and two unforgettable characters.
