The week after the L.A. international screenings, Canadian broadcasters announced their new U.S. series acquisitions for next season. Top-rated CTV has picked up seven new U.S. series for fall — reality The X Factor, dramas Pan Am, Unforgettable, Charlie’s Angels, Grimm and Once Upon a Time and comedy Whitney — and three dramas for midseason: Smash, Good Christian Belles and Missing. Citytv has picked up dramas Terra Nova, The Playboy Club, Revenge, Person of Interest, Alcatraz and Scandal and comedies 2 Broke Girls, New Girl, Suburgatory, Last Man Standing and Apartment 23. Global went for fall dramas Prime Suspect and Ringer and midseason dramas The 2-2 and The Firm. The Canadian and U.K. markets are good barometers of what from the crop of new U.S. shows is hot as most U.S. shows are up for grabs there, unlike the rest of the world, where the vast majority of broadcasters are tied to long-term output deals with U.S. TV studios.
