CTV returns to homegrown fare

Network only acquires seven new U.S. shows

Given its abundance of returning hits, Canadian network CTV unveiled a fall schedule Monday with just seven new U.S. series.

They are “Private Practice,” the spin-off from “Grey’s Anatomy” (also a hit on CTV in Canada); “Dirty Sexy Money,” a new primetime soap starring Donald Sutherland, Peter Krause, William Baldwin and Jill Clayburgh; “Big Shots,” starring Dylan McDermott, Christopher Titus, Joshua Malina and Michael Vartan; “Moonlight,” about a vampire who becomes a detective; “Gossip Girl,” from “OC” creator Josh Schwartz; and “Pushing Daisies,” from “American Beauty” co-producers Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen.

CTV has picked up only one new U.S. sitcom, “The Big Bang Theory,” from “Two and a Half Men” creator Chuck Lorre.

“With 16 returning top 20 hits, we’ve taken a bulletproof schedule and made it stronger,” said CTV programming chief Susanne Boyce, who made the announcement. “We’ve strategically hand-picked the most engaging new titles for the fall schedule, each delivering creative firepower.”

CTV has snared the Canuck TV rights to “Without a Trace” and “Two and a Half Men.” Returning CTV shows include “American Idol,” the three “CSI” series, “Lost,” “Desperate Housewives” and “Criminal Minds.”
