The momentum continues to build for the TV series Carter which was shot in North Bay last summer. 

This week the exciting detective TV series starring Jerry O’Connell has been picked up by two more major networks in North America.

CTV will start running the series starting on July 24th, while WGN America will begin broadcasting the series in August.   

It has been a great summer for the new TV series, with Bell Media reporting that the series reached more than 1.1 million viewers in its first week on Bravo with runs on Tuesday and Saturday nights.   

The series premiere aired on May 15th and members of the cast and crew - including star Jerry O’Connell - came to North Bay for a premiere screening at the Capitol Centre that night.

Carter will stream exclusively on CraveTV following its broadcast run on Bravo.

Carter is currently airing on Sony Pictures Television Networks platforms in Latin America, Central Europe, and Russia and has become a key utility player driving video starts in on-demand environments and impressive ratings growth on linear channels. 

For example, on Sony’s AXN networks in Central Europe, the series has reached over 3.5 million viewers and has been a big success in Poland where it is the #1 Monday series in primetime on AXN this calendar quarter (Q2), ahead of CRIMINAL MINDS, CSI, BONES, NCIS LA.

Carter debuted on UKTV’s Alibi on June 13 and on SPT Networks in Spain and Portugal later this summer.

With all the viewing success it is likely only a matter of time when the cast and crew of Carter will be back in North Bay this summer to shoot season two of this North Bay themed program.
