Last night's episode of SPUN OUT is now available on demand on CTV.ca and the CTV GO app.
Canadians can spend more time with the team at Dave Lyons PR, when the series' second episode airs tonight in SPUN OUT's regular Fridays at 8 p.m. ET timeslot before the series premiere of KIRSTIE starring Kirstie Alley at 8:30 p.m. ET on CTV and CTV GO. In tonight's episode, when it seems like Dave (Dave Foley) and his ex-wife Claudia (Tricia Helfer, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA) may get back together, Stephanie (Rebecca Dalton) will do anything to return her parents to their state of un-marital bliss. Nelson (Al Mukadam) spills the secret about Bryce's (J.P. Manoux) palatial bathroom. Abby (Holly Deveaux) hopes to strike it rich when she buys a storage locker full of junk (Barry Weiss, STORAGE WARS)..
In next week's episode of MOTIVE, "They Made Me a Criminal" (Thursday, March 13 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV and CTV GO), Detectives Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira) discover that what initially looks like a case of self-defense during a home invasion is actually something much more calculated. A surprising connection between the victim and the killer demonstrates just how far a mother will go to protect her family. While they work to determine the motive, Sergeant Cross (Warren Christie) asserts his position, much to the disdain of Angie, and the tension doesn't go unnoticed by Vega. Rookie Officer Wendy Sung (Valerie Tian) joins the team and is warmly welcomed by Detective Lucas (Brendan Penny).
