CTV Picks Up Young Sheldon & More U.S. Shows


Canada’s CTV has picked up a total of 13 new series, among them the new U.S. comedy Young Sheldon.

Joining the Big Bang Theory spin-off on the broadcaster’s acquisition slate is the single-camera comedy Me, Myself and I, starring Bobby Moynihan (SNL). The eight-episode revival of Roseanne is on the roster as well, alongside The Mayor, about a rapper-turned-politician.

The as-yet-untitled Grey’s Anatomy spin-off, set in a Seattle firehouse, is one of the channel’s drama acquisitions, of which there are nine in total. For the People, the latest from Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers, is on the slate, as is The Good Doctor, from House alum David Shore; The Gospel of Kevin, starring Jason Ritter; and the Kyra Sedgwick drama Ten Days in the Valley. CTV has also picked up Marvel’s Inhumans, as well as The Gifted, from Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and Bryan Singer (X-Men). The Crossing, about refugees from a war-torn country, and Deception, from executive producer Greg Berlanti, are also headed to the Canadian broadcaster.

“CTV’s strategically curated mix of the year’s most-buzzed-about sitcoms and compelling dramas sets the stage for viewers to root for both heroes, families and even misfits with heart,” said Mike Cosentino, the senior VP of content and programming at Bell Media. “We can’t wait to share our powerful new slate with advertisers and viewers next week.”
