TORONTO, Aug. 11, 2014 /CNW/ - This fall, Global delivers the wow factor with a powerhouse schedule of captivating new dramas, charming comedies and long-awaited comebacks of returning favourites, drawing viewers in to sensational TV moments.  

With a schedule packed with TV's fiercest females, hottest men and thrilling event series, Global gears up for an unstoppable season. Ten o'clock is home to Global's most buzzed about new dramas, including the heart-pounding new thriller Stalker, premiering on October 1, comic book adaptation Constantine beginning October 24, and the gripping CIA drama State of Affairs, debuting on November 17. Unapologetic political drama Madam Secretary joins critically acclaimed The Good Wife rounding out Global's must-see Sunday night schedule. From dynamic characters to spine-tingling twists, Global also brings viewers the highly anticipated event of the season Gracepoint, premiering October 2.
