EDITORS' NOTE

New Drama Series "Motive" Premiere Moves to Special Day and Time, Monday, May 20, Following the Finale of the "Dancing with the Stars" Performance Show, And Returning Favorite "The Bachelorette" to Now Debut on Monday, May 27

The innovative new procedural "Motive" will now premiere on a new special day and time, Monday, May 20 from 9:01-10:00 p.m., ET, following the finale of the "Dancing with the Stars" performance show, while its regular time period premiere remains the same, on Thursday, May 23 at 9:00 p.m., ET. "The Bachelorette" will now debut on Monday, May 27 from 8:00-10:01 p.m., ET.

"MOTIVE"

When murder is committed, Angie Flynn, a loving, single mother and a damned good detective, along with her partner, Detective Oscar Vega, are on the case, looking for clues that will lead them to the killer. But "Motive" turns the tried-and-true crime drama formula on its head by indentifying the Killer and Victim at the beginning of each episode. These storylines are then further explored via stylized flashbacks that piece together the mysterious connection between these two characters and what drove the Killer to commit murder. "Motive" stars Kristin Lehman ("The Killing," "Judging Amy") as Detective Angie Flynn, Louis Ferreira ("SGU Stargate Universe," "Rookie Blue") as Detective Oscar Vega, Lauren Holly ("NCIS," "Chicago Hope," "Picket Fences") as Dr. Betty Rogers, Roger Cross ("24," "Arrow") as Staff Sergeant Boyd Bloom, Brendan Penny as Detective Brian Lucas and Cameron Bright ("The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2") as Manny Flynn. "Motive" was created by Daniel Cerone ("Dexter," "The Mentalist"), who executive-produces the show along with Louise Clark, Rob Merilees, Erin Haskett, Rob LaBelle, Lindsay Macadam and James Thorpe. Developed by CTV, the series is produced by Foundation Features and Lark Productions in association with Bell Media, and distributed by NBCUniversal International.

"THE BACHELORETTE" - PREMIERES ON MONDAY, MAY 27 (8:00-10:01 p.m.)

This season the hit romance reality series will feature its ninth edition with the lucky new Bachelorette - Desiree Hartsock -- getting to know 25 fortunate men via a series of social gatherings and exotic, romantic dates, some in groups, some individually. She will introduce some of the men to her family and will visit their hometowns for a slice of their lives in an effort to determine the man with whom she is most compatible. At the end of the journey, filled with drama and surprises against the backdrop of spectacular international settings and featuring innovative twists and special guest stars, the Bachelorette may quite possibly have found true love. But the big question is: After all of this, will she hand out her final rose? And if she does, will the final bachelor accept it and propose? Hosted by Chris Harrison, "The Bachelorette" is a production of Next Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television. Mike Fleiss and Martin Hilton are the executive producers.
