Day two of the Canadian upfronts and Shaw Media is the next to unveil their new schedule.
Announced on Wednesday via press release, Shaw Media has picked up 7 new comedies and 11 new dramas for their flagship network Global. The order also revealed new details for programs returning to Global and similar Shaw Media specialty channels.
Cop dramas and supernatural entries are making its way to Global. Heading to the network this fall will include new programs like Sleepy Hollow, Ironside, The Blacklist, Almost Human and the romantic thriller Dracula. While only five new dramas will fill the schedule in the fall, Remedy, Chicago PD, Rake, Crossbones, Reckless and the highly anticipated return of Jack Bauer in 24: Live Another Day will launch midseason in 2014.
The return of certain big name comedy actors are returning as well. New shows such as We Are Men, Welcome To The Family, Sean Saves The World, The Millers and The Michael J. Fox Show will premiere in the fall, while About A Boy and Working The Engels are slated for midseason.
Scripted dramas weren't the only reveal made by Shaw Media. Big Brother Canada has been confirmed to return for season two with casting details to be released in the coming days or weeks. This is possibly the best news ever as I loved the first season and would have been upset for it not to return for another year.
