Bravo in Canada is prepping an original drama, 19-2, for debut on 29 January. It will air immediately following season two episodes of the Emmy-winning series Homeland. And, CTV will air the episodes one day later.
Set in Montréal, the ten-episode English-language adaptation of the French Canadian juggernaut hit follows the lives of veteran city cop Nick Barron (Adrian Holmes, Arroe) and recently transferred rural officer, Ben Chartier (Jared Keeso, Falling Skies). Two men from very different worlds, Ben and Nick are reluctantly partnered beat cops.
Full episodes of 19-2 are available on Bravo.ca and via the Bravo GO app after their broadcast premieres.
"19-2 is a series we can't wait to debut," said Catherine MacLeod senior vice-president for specialty channels and Bell Media Production. "The teams at Sphere Media Plus and Echo Media have produced such a searing and unforgettable drama for Bravo, it's poised to join the ranks of must-watch TV."
In the premiere episode of 19-2, guilt-ridden officer Nick returns to work following a deadly shooting. Meanwhile, Ben's transfer to Station 19 from Québec's rural police force turns rocky after a split-second decision triggers an internal investigation.
19-2 is co-produced by Sphère Média Plus and Echo Media in association with Bell Media.
