“Across the River to Motor City” is a mini-series spanning two eras, two countries and two unforgettable characters. November 22, 1963, is Ben Ford’s 30th birthday, the day he is determined to change his life. He is intent on asking his stewardess girlfriend Katie to marry him and is ready to leave his job as an insurance investigator in the Windsor/Detroit area in search of something better. But when Katie disappears on the fateful day that also took the life of JFK, nothing is the same for Ben again.

Almost forty years later, Katie’s body is discovered in a land reclamation project. Ben is now an old man with a grown daughter he barely knows, and has a lifetime of secrets and regrets he is trying to forget. When the police re-open the case, Ben’s daughter Kathleen begins to unravel the secrets and lies at the heart of her troubled relationship with her father. Starring Sasha Roiz, David Fox, Anne Openshaw, Joe Pingue, Howard Jerome, Matthew Deslippe and Raven Dauda.

Citytv and A-Channel Fall Schedule

From a media release:

Citytv and A-Channel announce the following for the Fall 2007-2008 Season:

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.
