    ADDENDUM (c) - NEW CTV and "A" PRIMETIME PROGRAMS
    -------------------------------------------------

    Flashpoint (CTV)
    ----------------
    Starring Enrico Colantoni (Veronica Mars), Hugh Dillon (Durham County),
Amy Jo Johnson (Felicity) and David Paetkau (Whistler), Flashpoint is an
emotional journey into the tough, risk-filled lives of a group of cops in the
Strategic Response Unit (inspired by Toronto's Emergency Task Force). They're
unique cops that can do what ordinary police officers can't: rescue hostages,
bust gangs, defuse bombs, climb the sides of buildings and talk down suicidal
teens. Members of a highly-skilled tactical team, they're also trained in
negotiating, profiling and getting inside the suspect's head at the very
emotional breaking point (the "flashpoint") that triggered the crisis. They'll
do whatever it takes to diffuse the situation to try to save lives - all in a
day's work.

    Cast: Enrico Colantoni as Sgt. Gregory Parker; Hugh Dillon as Ed Lane;
Amy Jo Johnson as Julianne "Jules" Callaghan; David Paetkau as Sam Braddock;
Gabriel Hogan (Rent-A-Goalie, Robson Arms) as Roland Cray; Ona Grauer
(Intelligence) as Kate Travers.
    Credits: EP: Bill Mustos (Degrassi: TNG, Robson Arms), EP: Anne Marie La

association with CTV and CBS Paramount Network Television.

    The Listener (CTV)
    ------------------
    Toby Logan (Craig Olejnik, In God's Country) is The Listener. He's a
charismatic twenty-something paramedic, a lone wolf whose external cool masks
a difficult past and stunning secret: he's a telepath. Toby can tune in on the
current thoughts of those around him. He has lived with this ability -
sometimes a gift, sometimes a curse - for his whole life. He keeps it a
closely-guarded secret, knowing full well that if it were to become public
knowledge, he would become a scientific oddity. Then one night, while off-duty
and out on the town, Toby overhears a thought that changes everything: someone
is in desperate need of help and only he can provide it. Nothing will ever be
the same for Toby again. Toby finds that his gift is no longer a curse, but
something he can offer to others - people in need.

    Cast: Craig Olejnik as Toby Logan; Ennis Esmer (Billable Hours) as Osman
Bey; Lisa Marcos (Kevin Hill) as "Charlie" Marks; and Mylene Dinh-Robic

    So You Think You Can Dance Canada (CTV)
    ---------------------------------------
    So You Think You Can Dance Canada is based on the Emmy Award-winning
smash hit series created by Simon Fuller and Nigel Lythgoe that premiered in
2005. Canada joins the United States, Australia, Norway, Denmark, Greece,
Poland, Turkey, Germany, Malaysia, New Zealand, South Africa and Israel as
markets with an original So You Think You Can Dance production. So You Think
You Can Dance Canada will showcase dancers as they compete to impress an
expert panel of judges during a cross-country audition process. Selected
competitors will be invited to call-backs where they will work with some of
Canada's top choreographers. The panel will then choose the Top 20 dancers to
move on in the competition. Then, it's up to Canada to decide who stays and
who goes as the public votes for their favourites following weekly performance
episodes in which the competitors are assigned different partners and dance
styles to perform, from hip-hop, krump and pop-and-lock to salsa, quickstep,
ballroom, and jive. In the end, only one dancer goes home with the $100,000
grand prize.

    Cast: Leah Miller (MuchonDemand) is host; permanent judges are Tré
Armstrong and Jean Marc Genereux; alternating third judges are Luther Brown
and Blake McGrath; special guest judges are Rex Harrington, Dan Karaty, Mary
Murphy. Paul Becker, Sean Cheesman, Melissa Williams all serve as
choreographers who also appear as judges.

    Fringe ("A")
    ------------
    From J.J. Abrams (Lost), Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the team that
brought you Star Trek, Mission Impossible: III and Alias, comes a new drama
that will thrill, terrify and explore the blurring line between science
fiction and reality. When an international flight lands at Boston's Logan
Airport and the passengers and crew have all died grisly deaths, FBI Special
Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv, The Secret Life of Us) is called in to
investigate. When the search nearly kills her partner, Special Agent John
Scott (Mark Valley, Boston Legal), a desperate Olivia searches frantically for
someone to help, leading her to Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble, Home and Away),
the Einstein of the 21st century. There's only one catch: he's been
institutionalized for the last 20 years, and the only way to question him
requires pulling his estranged son, Peter (Joshua Jackson, Dawson's Creek), in
to help. Under Special Agent Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick, Lost), the trio
work to discover the shocking truth behind "fringe science."

    Cast: Anna Torv as Olivia Dunham; John Noble as Walter Bishop; Joshua
Jackson as Peter Bishop; Lance Reddick as Phillip Broyles.

    Eleventh Hour ("A")
    -------------------
    From blockbuster producer Jerry Bruckheimer (CSI, Without a Trace, Cold
Case) comes a riveting new mystery series centring on Dr. Jacob Hood (Rufus
Sewell, John Adams), a brilliant biophysicist. When there is no one else to
turn to, Hood is called in by the government at the eleventh hour as a
scientist/detective. From cloning to so-called miracle cures, Dr. Hood
investigates the rapidly growing number of crimes and crises of a scientific
nature accompanied and protected by outspoken FBI agent Rachel Young (Marley
Shelton, American Dreamz). The series is based on the British miniseries
Eleventh Hour by Stephen Gallagher.

    The Mentalist ("A")
    -------------------
    This crime drama from David Nutter (Supernatural, Without a Trace)
centres on Patrick Jane (Simon Baker, Smith), a well-known former television
psychic who, after being exposed as a fraud, uses his very real abilities as a
mentalist to help the California Bureau of Investigation solve crimes. As a
mentalist, Patrick uses his highly-developed skills of observation, deduction
and manipulation to aid the Serious Crimes unit. He's charismatic, if a bit
odd - an edgy, modern Sherlock Holmes whose controversial methods often cross
the line, but ultimately prove him right. Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney, Prison
Break) is a top agent with the FBI who often works with Patrick. Though she
grudgingly recognizes his talents, she is determined to solve cases with or
without him.

    Cast: Simon Baker as Patrick Jane; Robin Tunney as Teresa Lisbon; Owain
Yeoman (Kitchen Confidential) as Wayne Rigsby; Tim Kang (Rambo) as Kimball
Cho; Amanda Righetti (Reunion) as Grace Van Pelt.
