Motive - Renewed for a 2nd Season

TORONTO (May 8, 2013) – In advance of its upcoming Upfront Presentation, CTV announced today its latest pick-up for the 2013/2014 broadcast season with a second season order of its original drama series “Motive” (@MotiveTV).

The #1 new Canadian series of the year, CTV has ordered an additional 13 episodes for the series’ second season from Vancouver-based Foundation Features and Lark Productions. Production is set to begin this summer. The announcement comes with just one episode remaining before “Motive’s” first-season finale next Thursday, May 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV Mobile.

After launching following the Super Bowl, and later moving to the prestigious Thursday at 10 p.m. timeslot, “Motive” is this season’s most-watched Canadian scripted series among all key selling demos.

In January, it was announced that “Motive” had been picked up by ABC for American broadcast. As announced earlier this week, CTV will schedule encore presentations of “Motive” in simulcast with ABC, beginning Monday, May 20 at 10 p.m. ET/PT before moving to its new Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT timeslot May 23.

“‘Motive’ has built a tremendous audience of viewers devoted to its intriguing storylines and recognizable characters,” said Phil King, President, CTV Programming and Sports.

“Hats off to the incredible production team, both in front of and behind the camera, that has made this series such a success – we look forward to seeing where they take viewers in a much-deserved second season. And we are pumped to schedule another opportunity this summer for new viewers to see what they’ve been missing.”

“We are thrilled to partner with CTV again, and to have the opportunity to build on Season 1 with our exceptional cast and Vancouver crew. We are delighted that ‘Motive’ was able to find its audience and we look forward to engaging our fans with more riveting motives in Season 2," said Executive Producers Rob Merilees and Louise Clark.

On this week’s all-new episode of “Motive” entitled “Ruthless” (Thursday, May 9 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV), an executive assistant is found dead in a hotel room during a corporate retreat. In their search, Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Vega (Louis Ferreira) come across a suspect who clearly had the means and opportunity. But, as far as the motive goes, Flynn’s stumped until she discovers an unexpected link between the killer and the victim.

It all leads up to “Motive’s” dramatic season finale “The One That Got Away” (Thursday, May 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV), that sees Angie’s (Kristin Lehman) home life about to change forever as she comes to grips with her son Manny (Cameron Bright) heading off to college.

Although, there’s little time to reflect on her new empty-nester status when a brutal crime focuses her attention on another young man. Navigating a maze of red herrings and investigative dead ends, it takes all of Angie's experience and training to right the wrongs of the past as she races against time to catch a killer before he kills again.
