CTV’s original drama “Motive” will soon have an audience south of the border.

The new crime series, which airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, has been picked up by U.S. network ABC to air in summer 2013. 

“We are very happy to have ABC on board and thrilled that this fantastic new Canadian drama will have a North American audience,” said Phil King, President, CTV Programming and Sports.

“CTV is very proud of our track record in developing and co-producing original Canadian content that continues to be seen around the world. Today’s announcement is a testament to the talent of Canada’s independent production community, Vancouver’s film and television community, and of, course Bell Media’s Independent Production team.”

From acclaimed Executive Producer Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist,” “Dexter”), “Motive” is a captivating one-hour crime drama that follows spirited female homicide detective Angie Flynn on a backwards chase for clues to a killer that has already been revealed to viewers.

An unconventional way to watch a crime unfold, the “whydunit” stars Kristin Lehman (“The Killing”) as Detective Angie Flynn, Gemini Award-winning Louis Ferreira (“SGU Stargate Universe”) as Det. Oscar Vega, Lauren Holly (“NCIS”) as medical examiner Dr. Betty Rogers, Roger Cross (“Arrow”) as Staff Sgt. Boyd Bloom, Brendan Penny (“The Assistants”) as Det. Brian Lucas and Cameron Bright (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2”) as Angie’s teenage son Manny Flynn.

In addition to Joey MacIntyre’s guest-starring turn in the series premiere, “Motive” features a dynamic lineup of guest appearances throughout the season, including Molly Parker (“The Firm,” “Dexter”) and Liane Balaban (“Supernatural”), and acclaimed directors including David Frazee (“Flashpoint”) and Oscar-nominated Sturla Gunnarsson (“Rare Birds,” “Beowulf & Grendel”).
