CTV Adds East New York, The Rookie: Feds, Night Court


CTV has lined up a set of new series for the 2022-23 season that includes East New York, from the executive producers of NYPD Blue.

East New York is about the newly promoted police captain of East New York, with Amanda Warren and Jimmy Smits in lead roles.

Also coming to CTV is the spin-off of the hit series The Rookie, The Rookie: Feds, starring Niecy Nash-Betts as the oldest rookie at the FBI Academy. Alaska, from the Academy Award winner Tom McCarthy (Spotlight), follows a disgraced reporter looking for redemption at an Anchorage newspaper. Two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank stars.

For midseason, CTV’s lineup features True Lies, an adaptation of James Cameron’s international spy blockbuster with Steve Howey and Ginger Gonzaga; the character-driven drama Alert, about the LAPD’s Missing Persons Unit from John Eisendrath, Jamie Foxx and Datari Turner; and Night Court, a follow-up to the hit 1980s sitcom starring Melissa Rauch and John Larroquette, reprising his role as Dan Fielding.

Celebrity Jeopardy!, a spin-off of the iconic game show featuring famous faces competing to donate money to a chosen charity, also joins the CTV schedule.

CTV’s Specialty Channels have also expanded their offerings. CTV Sci-Fi Channel is adding The Winchesters, a prequel to the hit series Supernatural, centered on Dean and Sam’s parents; and The Ark, which follows planetary colonization missions in the race to save human beings from extinction. CTV Drama Channel has lined up Panhandle, centered on eccentric, agoraphobic arm-chair detective Bell Prescott, who enlists the reluctant help of the local traffic cop. CTV Life Channel will feature Jamie’s One Pan Wonders, in which Jamie Oliver provides solutions for anyone who wants to cook delicious food with minimal ingredients, less cleaning up and big flavor.
