To tweet this release: bmpr.ca/1Afaomq TORONTO (January 14, 2015) – Bravo announced today that the Season 2 premiere of its gripping original drama 19-2, which picked up 10 Canadian Screen Award nominations yesterday including Best Drama Series, will receive an encore primetime broadcast in a special, commercial-free, CTV premiere event on Tuesday, Jan. 20 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The network broadcast follows the Bravo premiere of Season 2 one night earlier on Monday, Jan. 19 at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo. In advance of the Season 2 premiere episode on Bravo and CTV, viewers can catch up on Season 1 on demand on CraveTVTM. In the emotionally charged Season 2 premiere entitled “School” (viewer discretion advised), the entire squad is immersed in an intensely tragic school shooting with consequences that will profoundly impact all of their lives. The tragic events that unfold during the season premiere set the stage for 19-2’s overarching themes of introspection, trust and loyalty during Season 2 on Bravo. Featuring a haunting uninterrupted, 13-minute, single-camera tracking shot, the season premiere has been recreated for English audiences by renowned director Podz, who directed the same episode of the original French-Canadian version of 19-2 to critical acclaim. The commercial-free CTV broadcast will be followed by a short vignette about the making of the episode.
