CTV’s new original crime drama “Motive” has been promoted to the most-watched night on television.

Beginning March 14, “Motive” will air Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, joining the night’s stellar primetime lineup following fan-favourite “Grey’s Anatomy” in most of the country.

“As Canadians continue to embrace ‘Motive,’ we’re thrilled to offer this series even stronger positioning within our Thursday primetime schedule,” said Phil King, President, CTV Programming and Sports. “With the strength of its ensemble cast and gripping storylines this ‘Motive’ is a great addition to Thursday night’s powerhouse lineup.”

On the next episode of ‘Motive,’ entitled “Detour” (Thursday, March 14 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV), Detectives Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Vega (Louis Ferreira) investigate the death of a mortgage broker who was found strangled in his office parking lot. Their initial examination of evidence leads them to a disgruntled ex-wife as well as a petty thief, but neither lead pans out. A composite police sketch and a stubborn refusal to follow orders leads Flynn to a man whose desire to make amends with his family, coupled with a lapse in sobriety, has led to tragic results. Guest stars include Aidan Devine (‘A History of Violence’), Tammy Gillis (‘Less Than Kind’), and Gemini Award-winner David Julian Hirsh (‘Weeds’).

An encore presentation of Thursday night’s episode will air Sunday, March 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, and on Monday, March 18 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CTV Two, with both episodes in simulcast on CTV Mobile. ‘

‘Motive’ is also currently available on demand across CTV’s digital platforms: CTV.ca, the CTV App, and through video on demand partners.
