From a media release:
Bolstering aÂ previously announcedÂ 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 CTVâ€™s midseason schedule,Â TRIAL & ERROR, true crime and mockumentary collide in John Lithgowâ€™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 â€œNortheasternâ€ lawyer (Nicholas Dâ€™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 CTVâ€™s Tuesday night lineup alongside MARVELâ€™s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Also joining CTVâ€™s 2017 midseason schedule is the series premiere of Kevin Williamsonâ€™s (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES) fantastical cat and mouse adventure seriesÂ TIME AFTER TIMEÂ (March 5).
CTVâ€™s hit culinary seriesÂ MASTERCHEF CANADAÂ 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 seriesÂ POWERLESSÂ (Feb. 2) andÂ TRAINING DAYÂ (Feb. 2), and perennial blockbusterÂ THE BIG BANG THEORY.
The much-anticipated fifth and final season of CTVâ€™s hit original dramaÂ SAVING HOPEÂ (March 12) joinsÂ TIME AFTER TIMEÂ (March 5), as both series anchor the networkâ€™s Sunday night lineup.
OnÂ Tuesday, March 7, the season finale of this seasonâ€™s breakout hitÂ THIS IS USairs at a special time,Â 10 p.m. ET/PTÂ on CTV. Tuesdays also sees the pairing of hit seriesÂ THE FLASHÂ withÂ DCâ€™s LEGENDS OF TOMORROWÂ on CTV Two, in a new two-hour superhero block (Feb. 28).
FollowingÂ CARDINALâ€™s six-part event run (WednesdaysÂ atÂ 10 p.m. ET/PTÂ on CTV), March also sees the return of the fallâ€™s most-watched new seriesÂ DESIGNATED SURVIVOR* starring Kiefer Sutherland (March 8). Meanwhile, the sophomore season ofÂ THE CATCHÂ 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-winningÂ THE AMAZING RACEÂ returns with a two-hour premiere on CTV (April 21).
