CBS today announced several winter and spring scheduling moves, including the series premieres of RANSOM, TRAINING DAY and DOUBT.

The Network will begin rolling out its new scripted programming on New Year's Day with the launch of RANSOM, a crime drama about a world-renowned crisis and hostage negotiator whose team is brought in to resolve the most difficult kidnap and ransom cases. RANSOM debuts on Sunday, Jan. 1 after a football doubleheader, and moves to its regular Saturday time period (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on Jan. 7. Luke Roberts, Sarah Greene, Brandon Jay McLaren and Nazneen Contractor star.

CBS will launch two dramas in February, beginning with TRAINING DAY, premiering Thursday, Feb. 2 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) after PURE GENIUS completes its season order. TRAINING DAY is a crime thriller starring Bill Paxton and Justin Cornwell that begins 15 years after the events of the feature film, about a young, idealistic police officer who is tapped to go undercover in an elite squad of the LAPD where he partners with a morally ambiguous veteran detective. Katrina Law, Drew Van Acker, Lex Scott Davis, Julie Benz, Christina Vidal and Marianne Jean-Baptiste also star.

DOUBT will premiere Wednesday, Feb. 15 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) following the season finale of CODE BLACK. The new drama stars Katherine Heigl as a brilliant attorney at a boutique firm who starts to fall for her charismatic client, an altruistic pediatric surgeon recently accused of murdering his girlfriend 24 years ago. Dulé Hill, Steven Pasquale, Elliott Gould, Dreama Walker, Laverne Cox and Kobi Libii also star.

As previously announced, the new competition series HUNTED premieres Sunday, Jan. 22, immediately following one of television's biggest events, the NFL's AFC Championship game (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/7:00-8:00 PM, PT - time is approximate after post-game coverage). The series moves to Wednesdays on Jan. 25 with a special two-hour episode, 8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT, and then air 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT in subsequent weeks.

Also, in the second half of the year:

· The eighth season of two-time Emmy Award-winning alternative series UNDERCOVER BOSS will premiere with a special two-hour episode on Wednesday, Dec. 21 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT). It moves to Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on Dec. 28, until the time period premiere of HUNTED on Jan 25.

· The next season of SURVIVOR debuts with a two-hour premiere on Wednesday, March 8 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), one week after the conclusion of HUNTED. SURVIVOR moves to its regular Wednesday (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) time period on March 15.

· The multi-Emmy Award-winning reality series THE AMAZING RACE returns on Friday, April 21 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), with a two-hour premiere one week after the season finale of MACGYVER, then moving to its regular Friday (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) time period on April 28.
