From a media release:
With world politics heating up, and federal election only three months away, CTV announced today that Season 3 of its most *important original satirical series, THE BEAVERTON, will premiere exclusively in Canada on CTV and simultaneously, around the world on CTV’s YouTube ™ channel for the first time ever.
Beginning Tuesday, July 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, exclusively in Canada on CTV, co-anchors Emma Hunter and Miguel Rivas are primed to deliver the critical blows to a seemingly unrelenting news cycle. Rolling out weekly, all eight episodes of the half-hour series can be viewed:
- In Canada, Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, CTV.ca, and the CTV app
- Around the world on CTV’s YouTube ™ channel, day and date with Canadian viewers
- On demand, on Crave, CTV Digital platforms and TheBeaverton.com the day after its broadcast premiere
Seasons 1 – 2 of THE BEAVERTON are currently streaming on Crave.
Then, on Friday, Oct. 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, the Canadian Screen Award-nominated series turns its sharp focus to the Canadian federal election with a one-hour special, as the country prepares to elect its next government.
THE BEAVERTON is the brainchild of co-creators Luke Gordon Field and Jeff Detsky (CALL ME FITZ, SEED) of TheBeaverton.com, as well as website senior editors Jacob Duarte Spiel and Alexander Saxton. Henry Sarwer-Foner (THE RICK MERCER REPORT) returns as Director, and Pier 21 Film’s Laszlo Barna and Melissa Williamson serve as Executive Producers. Nicole Butler serves as Producer.
Fueled by the no-holds-barred wit of a writing room led by series co-creator and showrunner Jeff Detsky, THE BEAVERTON continues to hit above, below, and to the right and left of the belt, casting a Canadian lens on global issues with timely and topical viral-ready segments. Luke Gordon Field also returns as showrunner with co-anchors Emma Hunter and Miguel Rivas joining the writing room this season. Also returning as writers this season are Michael Balazo (SCHITT’S CREEK), Jocelyn Geddie (GO AWAY, UNICORN!), Nelu Handa (JANN), and Scott Montgomery (THIS HOUR HAS 22 MINUTES).
THE BEAVERTON is produced by Pier 21 Films in association with Bell Media, with the participation of Canadian Media Fund, and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit.
