Super Channel has added two new dramas to its roster: the mystery thriller Mr. Mercedes and the crime series The Oath.
Mr. Mercedes is based on the best-selling detective novel from Stephen King and was adapted for television by David E. Kelley. It will make its Canadian broadcast premiere on April 12 at 9 p.m. Each episode of the ten-part first season will also be available to viewers on Super Channel On Demand the day following its linear broadcast.
The ten-episode series The Oath, from executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and his G-Unit Film & Television, will premiere on April 17 at 9 p.m. As with Mr. Mercedes, each episode from season one will also be available to viewers on Super Channel On Demand the day after its weekly linear run.
Super Channel landed both series in a deal with Sony Pictures Television.
“We are thrilled to be bringing these outstanding series from Sony to Super Channel,” said Melissa Kajpust, the network’s director of programming, international distributors and Canadian presales. “Mr. Mercedes is a complex, compelling thriller with an incredible ensemble cast and we know Stephen King fans are going to be thrilled to finally be able to see it in Canada. The Oath is a unique crime drama that explores the clandestine world of police gangs. Both series offer something unique and highly entertaining, [and are] sure to resonate with our viewers.”
