New series get chosen by Chum TV

Canuck b'caster snares slew of U.S. skeins

MONTREAL — Canada’s Chum TV has snared a slew of new U.S. network series for next season, including Jerry Bruckheimer drama “Just Legal,” sitcom “Hot Properties” and the drama “Supernatural.”

The Toronto-based broadcaster also nabbed midseason replacements including “Bedford Diaries,” from exec producer Barry Levinson; “South Beach,” from Jennifer Lopez’s Nuyorican Prods.; and “Modern Men,” from Bruckheimer.

Negotiations for the series took place during the recent L.A. Screenings, in which all the Canuck broadcasters participated.

Chum also has a few Canadian series on the way, including the Canadian-French co-production “Ice Corps,” based on the French “La Compagnie des glaces” novels, and the swashbuckling drama “Young Blades.”

The fall launch is key to Chum as it will be the first season with the four stations in Alberta and Manitoba that Chum acquired when it bought Calgary-based Craig Media last year.

Three of those stations will be branded City-tv outlets and will share programming with the existing City-tv channels in Toronto and Vancouver. Chum’s local stations in southern Ontario and in Victoria, B.C., have been rebranded A-Channels for the fall launch.

Chum also picked up the Chris Rock comedy series “Everybody Hates Chris” earlier during the L.A. Screenings.
