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.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
"Qosmos has launched L7Viewer, a network traffic analysis tool, so it analyzes all the traffic between the virtual machine and the data center and the virtual machine and the external world," stated Sebastien Synold, Product Line Manager at Qosmos, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...

"We are the public cloud providers. We are currently providing 50% of the resources they need for doing e-commerce business in China and we are hosting about 60% of mobile gaming in China," explained Yi Zheng, CPO and VP of Engineering at CDS Global Cloud, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
