Following a blockbuster fall that saw it rank as Canada’s fastest-growing specialty service, Bravo! announced today it has secured the exclusive Canadian specialty rights to two compelling new series set to debut on the channel this summer, including the highly anticipated new drama DALLAS.

A continuation of the iconic series centered on the Ewing family cattle and oil dynasty, the new series stars some of the original cast and characters, including Patrick Duffy, Linda Gray and Larry Hagman, along with newcomers, Jordana Brewster, Jesse Metcalfe, Julie Gonzalo and Josh Henderson as the next generation of Ewings.

Also joining Bravo! in 2012 is the clever new series PERCEPTION, starring Canada’s own Eric McCormack (WILL AND GRACE) and Kelly Rowan (THE O.C.), which follows a neuroscientist who uses his unique outlook to help the federal government solve criminal cases.

Additionally, the GOLDEN GLOBE® nominated and GEMINI Award-winning hit original drama THE BORGIAS, starring Jeremy Irons, Francois Arnaud, Colm Feore and Holliday Grainger, returns for a gripping second season this spring on Bravo!.

Bravo! also announced today Steven Spielberg’s entertaining-new musical drama SMASH, starring Debra Messing (WILL & GRACE) and AMERICAN IDOL runner-up and songwriter Katharine McPhee, will air Fridays at 9 p.m. ET beginning Feb. 10. Bravo!’s new original companion docu-series WAY OFF BROADWAY, which follows Canadian amateur community theatre enthusiasts as they grow into musical entertainers in just eight weeks, now joins SMASH on Fridays beginning on a new date, March 2 at 8 p.m. ET (visit bravo.ca to confirm local broadcast times).

With a reinvigorated schedule featuring captivating series like THE BORGIAS, SUITS, and FRANKLIN & BASH, Bravo! has seen audience growth of 35% for W25-54, 32% for W18-49 and A18-49, and 29% for A25-54. Bravo! also jumped five spots to #13 on the list of most-watched non-sports specialty channels in Canada (A18-49) this past fall.

“Building on a remarkably successful fall for Bravo!, these compelling new dramas promise to make this upcoming summer our biggest yet,” said Catherine MacLeod, Vice-President, Specialty Channels, Bell Media. “With high-calibre casts, critical acclaim and huge buzz, DALLAS and PERCEPTION are welcome additions to our 2012 schedule.”

Coming to Bravo! this June, DALLAS is a continuation of the original series that aired from 1978-1991. Based on the soapy, backstabbing machinations of Dallas oil and cattle-ranching tycoon J.R. Ewing and his wealthy Texas family, the series features several actors and characters from the original series. The new DALLAS focuses on John Ross Ewing III (Josh Henderson, 90210, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) and Christopher Ewing (Jesse Metcalfe, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, CHASE), the now-adult sons of J.R. and Bobby Ewing, respectively. The series also stars Jordana Brewster (Fast & Furious, Fast Five, CHUCK) and Julie Gonzalo (Veronica Mars).

Scheduled to premiere this summer, PERCEPTION focuses on Dr. Daniel Pierce (Eric McCormack, WILL & GRACE), an eccentric neuroscientist who uses his unique outlook to help the federal government solve complex criminal cases. Created by executive producer Kenneth Biller (SMALLVILLE, STAR TREK: VOYAGER) and co-executive producer Mike Sussman (STAR TREK: ENTERPRISE, THRESHOLD), with McCormack serving as producer, PERCEPTION also stars Rachael Leigh Cook (She’s All That, Josie and the Pussycats), Arjay Smith (MALCOLM IN THE MIDDLE, The Day After Tomorrow) and Ottawa’s Kelly Rowan (THE O.C.).
