Ion TV Picks Up Canadian Drama

Ion TV has picked up the Canadian procedural drama “The Listener” and will be a co-producer on the series.

Ion joins Shaftesbury, CTV and Fox Intl. Channels as co-producers on the drama, which started production on 13 new original episodes earlier this year.

“The Listener” follows mind-reading police consultant played by Craig Olejnik, who uses his telepathic ability to help a special law enforcement unit solve the most complicated cases. Having kept his unique power hidden for years, Toby learns to harness his skill to help others and save lives.

The show, which bowed on Canada’s CTV in 2009, is slated to premiere on Ion later this year.
