Show Summary

PI Vicki Nelson does fine with the bread-and-butter investigations typically handled by private investigators, but everything changes one night when she witnesses a murder and meets Henry Fitzroy, a 480-year-old vampire. She investigates the murder for the victim's girlfriend, and suddenly, she is immersed in the supernatural. A former detective with the Metropolitan Toronto Police, she quit after learning she has a degenerative eye disorder, rather than accept a desk job. Her MTP contact, former partner and ex-lover Detective Mike Celluci, complicates matters with his doubts about her experiences. As her cases progressively involve her in Toronto's underworld, she is torn between her attraction to Henry and love for Mike, who fears for her sanity. Based on the "Blood" novels featuring Vicki Nelson by Tanya Huff and created by executive producer Peter Mohan, the show was produced by Kaleidoscope Entertainment and Insight Film Studios in association with CHUM Television.

Broadcast History:
Season One - Sundays at 9:00 pm
Season Two - Fridays at 9:00 pm

Blood Ties was broadcast in America on Lifetime cable network in 2007. Although filmed as one 22-episode season, the network split it into two seasons. The first 12 episodes were broadcast winter through spring of 2007, with eight of the final 10 episodes broadcast in Autumn 2007. Season two was part of a block of programming called "Psy-Fridays" where Blood Ties was joined by reality show Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead and game show America's Psychic Challenge. According to press reports at the time, Lifetime opted to move the final two episodes of season two to their website for streaming, because the game show and reality series had finished their runs after eight episodes. With no supernatural programming to take their places, Lifetime chose not to finish Blood Ties' season with traditional broadcasts. There were rumors of a possible season three, but Lifetime effectively canceled the series when it was not part of their 2008 upfront presentation in April 2008.
