    CTV (ended 1996)
    In this popular series that ran from 1994 to 1996, Benton Fraser comes to Chicago in an attempt to find out who killed his father. After solving the murder, he decides to stick around and work for the local Canadian consulate. He has made friends with a local detective, Ray Vecchio, whose sister, Francesca, has a major crush on him. Although Vecchio is often confused by Benton's strange way of doing things and Benton is often confused by how things are done south of the border, the two get along famously, having an incredible on-screen chemistry. Due South was originally a made-for-TV movie on CBS, with location shots done in Chicago, but most shots were in Toronto. After the end of the 1994 - 1995 season, CBS dropped the show, and CTV had to secure outside funding to finish off the year, even though CBS did order more episodes as a mid-season replacement in 1995 - 1996. The show was cancelled in 1996 due to low ratings, with the final episode airing in Canada in May of 1996. A year later, they resurrected some of the cast and crew to create the 1997 - 1999 spin-off. While many of the cast from the original show returned, they were unable to secure David Marciano to continue his role as Ray Vecchio. The ratings never lived up to the producers hopes, and the spin-off was cancelled after 26 episodes. There is often confusion as to whether the 26 episodes with Callum Keith Rennie is part of the original series with David Marciano, because the two series were combined and presented together in the United States as one series with three seasons.

    Ruthless New York sports agent Brett Parker returns to his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario intending to move their NHL franchise, the Hamilton Steelheads, to Houston for a pile of cash. Once home, however, Parker becomes the team's new General Manager after the current GM dies in front of him. He sets out to turn the bumbling team around, while forging a relationship with his estranged daughter and clashing with the Steelheads' equally ruthless corporate president. The series was made in Toronto, and aired for two seasons on CTV. In the US, UPN bought the show, but yanked it after two episodes. Hamilton, Ontario is a real city. The Spectator is really their newspaper, and Copps Coliseum, where the Steelheads play, is a real arena. The Steelheads, however, are an entirely fictional team. Their name is a play on the fact that Hamilton is the steel town of Ontario. The steelhead is also a fish, which is the team's logo.moreless

    CTV (ended 1994)
    E.N.G. (an abbreviation which means Electronic News Gathering) was a primetime Canadian drama that dealt with the personal lives of a group of newscasters and staff in the newsroom of a fictitious Toronto news station. Ann Hildebrandt was the executive producer of the news at station CTLS-TV 10; and she was having a secret affair with Jake Antonelli, the young hotshot cameraman. Her world was rocked with the arrival of Mike Fennell, the new News Director who had eyes for ratings. Their opinions clashed, but they only had the best interests of the station and their co-workers in mind. Among the other characters in CTLS' newsroom were Kyle Copeland, the station manager; Jane Oliver and (age-conscious) Seth Miller were the anchors; Bruce Foreman was a schemer; Marge Atherton was the motherly editor and source of strength for all; JC was an assignment editor; and Dan Watson was an insensitive, smarmy reporter. Some of the episodes were shown on Lifetime Cable network from 1989-1990. The show ran for a couple more years in Canada, until it was cancelled. The show was produced by Alliance Communications Corporation, CTV and Téléfilm Canada.
