Canada's CTV Buys 'Gotham,' 'How to Get Away With Murder'


As the Canadians come away from the Los Angeles Screenings with new and returning U.S. series, the top-rated network also bought "CSI: Cyber" and "American Crime."

TORONTO -- Canadian broadcaster CTV flew home from the Los Angeles Screenings with a slew of new U.S. network series, including Fox's Gotham and ABC's How to Get Away With Murder.

The network also said Friday it picked up ABC and Marvel's Agent Carter after CTV renewed Marvel's Agents of SHIELD for a second season, the crime procedural CSI: Cyber and John Ridley's American Crime as midseason additions, and the murder thriller Secrets and Lies, also for midseason.

CTV also picked up the crime procedural Forever, the cop dramedy The Mysteries of Laura, the family comedy The McCarthys and The Odd Couple, starring Matthew Perry.

CTV also followed up success with CW's Arrow by picking up The Flash, also from executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg.

CTV parent Bell Media will unveil its 2014-2015 primetime campaign in early June during the Canadian Upfront presentations, as will rivals Rogers Media and Shaw Media.
