  TORONTO (February 10, 2016) – Bravo continues to deliver the most compelling dramas as its latest must-see thriller COLONY firmly establishes itself as one of the top-rated programs on Canadian specialty TV. During its premiere on January 14, the hour-long thriller reached 838,000 viewers, and was the #1 specialty program of the day among all key demos. With an average audience of 489,000 viewers, COLONY is currently a Top 10 program on Canadian Entertainment Specialty this broadcast year-to-date, and in its Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET timeslot, Bravo is the #1 specialty network among viewers in all adult demos. For those who still need to settle into COLONY, Bravo is re-airing the entire series from the beginning with the COLONY marathon beginning Friday, March 25 at 10 a.m. ET. Set in the near future, COLONY centres on one Los Angeles family’s struggle to survive in the unstable city now divided by differing ideologies. While some residents are compliant with the occupation and reap the benefits, others rebel against the new order and suffer for it. Featuring a team of genre heavyweights, COLONY comes from the creative team of Carlton Cuse (LOST, THE STRAIN) and Ryan Condal (Hercules), and stars Josh Holloway (LOST) and Sarah Wayne Callies (THE WALKING DEAD) as husband and wife, Will and Katie Bowman, who find themselves separated from their son after the invasion of L.A. and are willing to do anything necessary to reunite their family. COLONY also stars Peter Jacobson (HOUSE) as the cunning and opportunistic Proxy Snyder, leader of the green zone, and Amanda Righetti (THE MENTALIST) as Maddie Bowman, Katie’s younger sister. In tomorrow night’s episode “Geronimo” (Thursday, February 11 at 10 p.m. ET), Geronimo's identity is revealed. Meanwhile, Will begins to question his wife's loyalties; Bram finds his way into a secret world and Snyder sees an opportunity to improve his standing.
