New and returning dramas lead lineup on Bravo this fall

Toronto-born Eric McCormack (Will & Grace) stars in the all-new drama Perception, premiering Wednesday, Sept. 5 at 9 p.m. ET, exclusively on Bravo.

The fascinating 10-episode series, part of Bravo’s fresh and engaging fall lineup, explores the mind of an eccentric neuroscience professor with paranoid schizophrenia, Dr. Daniel Pierce (McCormack), who is recruited by former student and FBI agent Kate Moretti (Rachel Leigh Cook, She’s All That) to help solve complex cases.

Also joining Bravo’s exciting fall lineup is Season 2 of the irreverent fan-favourite legal drama Franklin & Bash, starring Breckin Meyer (Road Trip) and Marc Paul Gosselaar (Saved By The Bell), Monday, Sept. 3 at 9 p.m. ET, and Season 3 of the sleek and sexy drama White Collar, starring Matt Bomer (Magic Mike) on Monday, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo.

“Wednesdays continue to be the home of exclusive hit series with Eric McCormack’s winning return to television as the eccentric Dr. Pierce on Perception,” said Catherine MacLeod, Vice-President, Specialty Channels, Bell Media. “Clever and captivating, the addition of this new drama, complements a strong and compelling fall lineup underpinned by breakout returning series Franklin & Bash and White Collar.”

In the series premiere of Perception (Wednesday, Sept. 5 at 9 p.m. ET), Dr. Daniel Pierce (Eric McCormack) works with the FBI on the puzzling case concerning the death of a pharmaceutical executive. Perception also stars Arjay Smith (THE JOURNEY OF ALLEN STRANGE) as Max Lewocki, Dr. Pierce’s teaching assistant, and Kelly Rowan (THE O.C.) as Natalie Vincent, Dr. Pierce’s best friend.

Season 2 of FRANKLIN & BASH (Monday, Sept. 3 at 9 p.m. ET) returns as Peter (Marc Paul Gosselaar) and Jared (Breckin Meyer) go to great lengths to sign a beverage company executive (guest star Kevin Nealon, WEEDS) as their next client, which could result in a big promotion for the duo. But a night on the town puts that possibility in jeopardy. Meanwhile Peter is tongue-tied over a beautiful police officer (guest star Kat Foster, WEEDS).

In the Season 3 premiere of WHITE COLLAR (Monday, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. ET), Peter (Tim DeKay) isn’t convinced that the priceless art collection plundered by the Nazis burned in Adler’s (Andrew McCarthy, LIPSTICK JUNGLE) warehouse fire; worse, he thinks Neal (Matt Bomer) stole it or knows who did. Neal passes a polygraph, but Peter can’t let it go. Of course Peter’s right: Neal does know who stole the collection, and he knows that Peter has some incontrovertible evidence that links him to the theft. He just has to find it.
