With two new dramas, four fresh comedies and a new family-friendly reality show, Global unveiled its 2018-19 primetime lineup on Monday. The new series join the network’s 20 returning fall hits. “Creating a well-balanced schedule with compelling dramas, new comedy lineups, and some of the best reality series, Global is positioned for a successful fall season,” said Maria Hale, Senior Vice President, Global Entertainment & Content Acquisition, Corus Entertainment.

At midseason, juggernaut reality series Big Brother: Celebrity Edition and fan-favourite Big Brother Canada return for more must-see moments and outrageous houseguest antics. The third and final chapter of the Canadian Screen Award-winning series Mary Kills People will also return at midseason.

The seven new series joining Global’s 2018-2019 programming schedule include:

  • FBI From Emmy® Award-winning producer Dick Wolf, this fast-paced drama centres on the inner workings of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and stars Canadian Missy Peregrym (Rookie Blue), Zeeko Zaki (Valor), Jeremy Sisto (Suburgatory) and Ebonée Noel (Wrecked).
  • New Amsterdam – A heartfelt, character-driven medical drama starring The Blacklist’s Ryan Eggold and based on New York City’s historic Bellevue Hospital, the oldest public hospital in America.
  • The Neighborhood – A hilarious new comedy starring the charismatic actor and comedian Cedric the Entertainer (Barber Shop) as an opinionated neighbour who is wary of his new neighbours (Max Greenfield, New Girl).
  • Happy Together – Starring Damon Wayans Jr. (New Girl), and Amber Stevens West (Ghosted), this new comedy follows a 30-something happily married couple who begin to reconnect with their younger, cooler selves when an exuberant young pop star unexpectedly moves in with them.
  • I Feel BadExecutive produced by Amy Poehler (Parks and Recreation), this new family comedy stars Sarayu Blue (No Tomorrow) as a mom, boss, friend, wife and daughter who is perfectly okay with being imperfect.
  • Dancing with the Stars: Juniors – A new take on an established favourite, the reality series pairs celebrity kids with professional junior ballroom dancers to perform choreographed routines, which will be judged by a panel of renowned ballroom experts.
  • Abby’s (midseason) From the producers of The Good Place comes a hilariously aspirational new comedy about the best bar in San Diego – home to good prices, great company and of course, Abby! Filmed outdoors in front of a live studio audience, this ensemble comedy features Natalie Morales (Parks and Recreation) and Neil Flynn (The Middle).
