TORONTO (May 7, 2014) From reality romance and daring drama to action-packed adventure and today’s top talent, audiences will be entertained all summer long as City brings the heat with its sizzling summer lineup. Beginning Monday, May 19, viewers can kick back and cool off with the season’s hottest new series and returning favourites.
Just when Bachelor fans thought they’d seen it all, City brings viewers the romantic television event of the summer with the brand-new bachelor spinoff series, Bachelor in Paradise. The six-episode series features new twists, shocking surprises, unexpected guests, and the most unlikely relationships in Bachelor history as some of the franchise’s biggest stars and villains return for a second chance to find their soulmates.
Delivering adrenaline-pumping action are the new adventure-reality series The Quest and the Canadian television premiere of Crisis. From the producer of the blockbuster movie franchise The Lord of the Rings, The Quest takes 12 lucky contestants on the adventure of a lifetime to conjure a land of magic and malevolence, where mythical creatures lurk in the woods and agents of darkness stir in the shadows. Only one player will emerge as a real-life hero. Featuring a strong ensemble cast, including Dermot Mulroney (August: Osage County) and Gillian Anderson (The X-Files), the pressure-packed drama Crisis centers on an idealistic Secret Service agent who finds himself in the middle of an international crisis, navigating moral and legal lines through the highest levels of power and corruption.
Rounding out the lineup are all-new seasons of returning smash-hit favourites The Bachelorette and America’s Got Talent. After putting Juan Pablo in his place last season on The Bachelor, new bachelorette Andi Dorfman is ready to find a man who can keep up. The 27-year old assistant district attorney from Atlanta, GA embarks on her own journey to find love, visiting some of the most breathtaking places in the world with 25 of the country’s most eligible bachelors. Then, it’s lights, camera, talent as the search for the country’s next top talent gets underway on America’s Got Talent, featuring host Nick Cannon and judges Heidi Klum, Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, and Mel B. Find out who will walk away with the $1 million grand prize on the heels of last season’s winner, Kenichi Ebina – a self-taught dancer who infuses illusion, mime, and special effects.
