TORONTO, Jan. 9, 2014 /CNW/ - Bravo announced that following the premiere of its highly-anticipated, original drama 19-2 on Wednesday, Jan. 29 at 9 p.m. ET, CTV will support the series with its conventional television debut the following day, Thursday, Jan. 30 at 10 p.m. ET. Set in Montréal, the 10-episode English-language adaptation of the French Canadian juggernaut hit follows the lives of veteran city cop Nick Barron (Adrian Holmes, ARROW) and recently transferred rural officer, Ben Chartier (Jared Keeso, FALLING SKIES). Two men from very different worlds, Ben and Nick anchor this richly nuanced, character-driven drama that explores their journey as reluctantly partnered beat cops. Elegant storytelling, complex character exploration, and a lyrical tone are the hallmarks of this intensely psychological cable series.

Full episodes of 19-2 are available on Bravo.ca, and the Bravo GO app after their broadcast premiere. Airing immediately following 19-2 is Season 2 of the Emmy®-winning series HOMELAND at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo, with the long-awaited season premiere also on Jan. 29.

"19-2 is a series we can't wait to debut," said Catherine MacLeod Senior Vice-President, 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 Barron (Holmes) returns to work following a deadly shooting. Meanwhile, Ben Chartier's (Keeso) transfer to Station 19 from Québec's rural police force turns rocky after a split-second decision triggers an internal investigation.

In Episode 2, (premiering Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 9 p.m. ET) Ben's life is in danger after a showdown between rival street gangs goes terribly wrong. Squad 19 gathers at Marie's for the Sergeant's party, and Isabelle discovers Nick may have feelings for someone else.

19-2 also stars Benz Antoine as troubled beat cop Tyler Joseph, reprising his role from the original Québec series; Bruce Robert Ramsay (CONTINUUM) as manipulative District Commander Marcel Gendron; Conrad Pla (THE LISTENER) as Sergeant Julien Houle, who oversees Squad 19; Dan Petronijevic (SAVING HOPE) as the antagonistic J.M. Brouillard; Laurence Leboeuf DURHAM COUNTY as vivacious Audrey Pouliot; Maxim Roy (HEARTLAND) as Detective Isabelle Latendresse, Nick's estranged wife; Mylène Dinh-Robic (THE LISTENER) as the no-nonsense Beatrice Hamelin; and Tyler Hines (SAVING HOPE) as young, rookie cop Vince Legare.

19-2 is co-produced by Sphère Média Plus and Echo Media in association with Bell Media. Executive producers are Jocelyn Deschênes and Carolyn Newman from Sphère Média Plus and Luc Châtelain from Echo Media. 19-2 is an English-adaptation of the hit Québec series from the creators and stars of the original, Réal Bossé and Claude Legault and director Podz. Executive Producer Bruce Smith (DURHAM COUNTY) also acts as showrunner and writer. Jesse Mckeown (DAVINCI'S INQUEST, ROGUE) and Virginia Rankin are co-executive producers. Directors are Louis Choquette, who also directed the series' pilot episode, and Érik Canuel. Production Executives for Bell Media are Gosia Kamela and Tom Hastings.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
