‘South’ lives on in the north

MONTREAL – “Due South,” the comedy-action series about a Canadian Mountie patrolling the streets of Chicago, will see a third season this fall despite the absence of a Stateside broadcaster.

Producer Alliance Communications Corp. and the CTV Television Network said Monday they have been able to save the series because of support from the BBC in Britain, TFI in France and Pro Sieven in Germany and backing from the Telefilm Canada, the Cable Production Fund and the federal government’s tax credit program.

CBS aired “Due South” in its first season, picked it up as a midseason replacement in the second but said no to a third.

At a cost of $1.3 million per episode, “Due South” is one of the most expensive programs ever broadcast on CTV. It also is the highest-rated Canadian drama, often pulling more than 2 million viewers. The show is licensed in 110 countries.
