OVATION ACQUIRES U.S. LINEAR AND DIGITAL PREMIERE RIGHTS TO SEASON 11 OF "THE ARTFUL DETECTIVE" FROM ITV STUDIOS GLOBAL ENTERTAINMENT

Produced by Shaftesbury, Ovation's Longest-Running Series Will Return in January on Ovation TV and Ovation NOW

Los Angeles, CA - October 13, 2017 After building a dedicated fan base over the last 10 seasons, Ovation TV, America's only arts network, is returning for season 11 of The Artful Detective. The network has acquired US premiere linear rights to The Artful Detective, season 11 (18 x 60') from ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

The twist-filled season 10 finale saw the futures of Detective Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) and the heroes of Station House No. 4 in jeopardy amidst a corruption investigation gone awry. Season 11 will pick up with the aftermath of the finale's events that left the lives of Murdoch's beloved Dr. Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy), Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig) and Constables George Crabtree (Jonny Harris), Henry Higgins (Lachlan Murdoch), and Slugger Jackson (Kristian Bruun) at stake and their fates unknown. Season 11 storylines will feature a number of Canadian and international historical figures, including physician William Osler and Helen Keller, the return of artist Tom Thomson, President Theodore Roosevelt, and Alexander Graham Bell.

"We are continually pleased with the quality and brilliance of Shaftesbury's productions," Scott Woodward, EVP of Programming and Production, Ovation, stated. "American fans of Artful have been anxiously anticipating the new season and we are glad to be broadcasting it early next year."

Known as Murdoch Mysteries in Canada and international territories, the series is developed and produced by Shaftesbury, in association with CBC, ITV STUDIOS Global Entertainment and UKTV, and with the participation of the Canada Media Fund, the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit, the Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit and the COGECO Program Development Fund. Shaftesbury Sales Company and ITV STUDIOS Global Entertainment hold worldwide distribution rights for the series. The series is executive produced by Christina Jennings, Scott Garvie, Yannick Bisson and Peter Mitchell, who also serves as showrunner, and produced by Stephen Montgomery and Julie Lacey.

The eleventh season of The Artful Detective will premiere in January 2018 on Ovation TV and will also be available on Ovation NOW and VOD.
