Canadian cop drama to premiere July 10 at 8 p.m.

TORONTO -- The Canadian cop drama "The Bridge" has landed a summer slot on CBS.

Canadian broadcaster CTV on Monday confirmed the E1 Television series will air on CBS on Saturday nights at 8 p.m. from July 10.

CTV launched "The Bridge" on March 5 on its main network here ahead of CBS after the U.S. network and co-producer delayed airing the Canadian drama about big-city union politics until a primetime slot opened up.

The Canadian broadcaster will repeat the first season of the homegrown cop drama day-and-date with CBS from July 10.
