Amber: (...) As for The Borgias, CTV has yet to figure out a second run, but know this: anything on CTV will be cut from the original that airs on Bravo! — that’s what happens when you move a show from a paid station to a free one. Besides, as Borgias actor Colm Feore told me, “we like a little softness in our period dramas. I don’t want to be looking for wig lace, and women of a certain age deserve a softer light. Sharpness is not everybody’s friend. I’m sure some of the geeks will appreciate HD, but I’d rather see the whole story slightly softer.”
Because CTVglobemedia (now Bell Media) is one of the production companies. Therefore it must air on Bell Media's asset in Canada.I wonder why 1.MC/TMN or 2.Superchannel didn't jump on this? Usually one of the two services gets the showtime shows.
Based on its record-breaking success on Bravo!, CTV has also ordered a second season of scandal and intrigue from THE BORGIAS, before its world network television debut on CTV on Tuesday, July 5 at 10 p.m. ET. The second, 10-episode season of the Canada/Hungary/Ireland co-production is scheduled to premiere in 2012 on CTV and Bravo!.
