TVGN to Marathon the CW’s Freshman Dramas

The Tomorrow People

CW fans will be able to play catch-up on the network’s latest sudsy dramas a little further down the channel lineup, as TVGN slates marathons of “The Tomorrow People,” “The Originals” and “Reign” for this month.

TVGN will bow the “Tomorrow People” marathon Jan. 4, “Originals” Jan. 11, and “Reign” Jan. 18. All three dramas premiered on the CW in fall 2013.

“The CW is thrilled to team up with TVGN to give viewers the opportunity to catch up on our three new hit series, ‘The Originals,’ ‘The Tomorrow People’ and ‘Reign,’” said Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW. “Now a whole new audience has the chance to experience these exciting dramas from the very beginning while fans of the series can see all the twists and turns they might have missed so far so everyone can be up to speed on all the action when these shows return with original episodes later this month on The CW.”

Marathon of CW shows is another example of TVGN borrowing fan equity from larger CBS-owned networks to help build its viewership. Cabler currently airs encore broadcasts of “The Young and the Restless,” a CBS soap. TVGN is owned by Lionsgate and CBS Corporation. The CW is owned by CBS Corporation and Warner Bros.
