As a break from Gloryosky’s new “strategy” of posting press releases, here is a list of new and/or returning primetime Canadian series and specials that will air during summer 2014. Also included are cable shows earning a second window on conventional broadcast and/or mainstream cable television.
Update (May 23, 2014): Remedy is a conventional broadcast show making its cable debut; it was mentioned in this tweet from @ShawMediaBuzz, so I mention it here.
This list will be updated as I find out more information. If I miss any shows, and/or screw up on dates/times, please e-mail Gloryosky, comment on this article, and/or tweet Gloryosky.
