Publish date:

American television continues to look abroad during the strike as NBC picked up The Listener from Canada’s CTV.

The network ordered 13 episodes of the one-hour drama about a man who can read people’s thoughts. CTV green-lit the show last December and currently has it in pre-production in Toronto.

The show is from Toronto’s Shaftesbury Films.

CBS earlier this week picked up a 13-episode run of another CTV show, Flashpoint.
