GLOBAL’S NEW AND RETURNING SERIES FOR 2020/2021

Today Global unveiled its 2020/21 programming slate loaded with new, high profile series and returning hits to create a dynamic and solid schedule of premium content. On the heels of yesterday’s announcement about new pickups 60 Minutes and 48 Hours, Global adds three new primetime shows to its fall lineup. Starring Emmy® winner Archie Panjabi (The Good Wife) and Oscar® winner Christopher Plummer (All The Money In The World), the much-anticipated North American debut of Global Original event series Departure lands this fall on Global, along with licensed series The Equalizer starring Queen Latifah (Chicago, Bessie), who also serves as executive producer, and sci-fi drama neXt starring John Slattery (Mad Men). These new series join Global’s 19 returning primetime hit shows offering compelling dramas, hilarious comedies, and beloved reality series.

“During an unprecedented time of uncertainty with production shutdowns, Global has built a balanced and trusted schedule with content ready to air this fall,” said Troy Reeb, Executive Vice President, Broadcast Networks, Corus Entertainment. “Featuring buzz-worthy new dramas and proven successful hits, Global is positioned to deliver viewers a solid and entertaining fall lineup.”

NEW FALL PRIMETIME SERIES
Departure
Departure
is a six-part event series that follows the investigation into the shocking disappearance of Flight 716, a passenger plane that vanishes over the Atlantic Ocean. Brilliant investigator Kendra Malley (Panjabi) is brought in by her mentor Howard Lawson (Plummer) to lead the team looking into the crash. Click here to watch the trailer.

The Equalizer
The Equalizer
is a reimagining of the classic series starring Academy Award® nominee and multi-hyphenate Queen Latifah (Chicago, Bessie) as Robyn McCall, an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background who uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn. McCall presents to most as an average single mom who is quietly raising her teenage daughter. But to a trusted few, she is The Equalizer – an anonymous guardian angel and defender of the downtrodden, who’s also dogged in her pursuit of personal redemption.

neXt
From creator and executive producer Manny Coto (24: Legacy) and executive producers and directors John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (This Is Us), neXt is a propulsive, fact-based thriller about the emergence of a deadly, rogue artificial intelligence that combines pulse-pounding action with a layered examination of how technology is invading our lives and transforming us in ways we don’t yet understand. Click here to watch the trailer.

I just want to comment that access to those networks is limited for those who do not subscribe through Shaw. I am with Bell and when I access the Global TV App I only get access to Global, Global News and History, even though I subscribe to all the other channels on my TV through Bell.
