TORONTO, March 25, 2013 /CNW/ - CTV announced today the premiere of THE DARK 
CORNER, an original digital series spun-off from its hit Canadian drama 
MOTIVE. Ordered exclusively for CTV's digital platforms, including 
CTV.ca/Motive, CTV App, and CTV Mobile, THE DARK CORNER will premiere in its 
entirety together with this week's episode of MOTIVE on Thursday, March 28. 
The new digital drama takes viewers through both past and present timelines in 
the same gripping format as its television companion. For the first time, all 
eight episodes will debut simultaneously, allowing viewers to watch the entire 
series immediately. 
THE DARK CORNER is CTV's latest digital spin-off reflecting the network's 
commitment to commission and launch companion digital series. In 2013, CTV 
premiered THE SWITCH (THE LISTENER) and ASK GAVIN (SAVING HOPE) on digital 
platforms. 
"With an ongoing strategy to create engaging digital companion series, we knew 
from the beginning we wanted to do something innovative with MOTIVE in the 
digital space that would drive appetite for new and existing fans," said Mike 
Cosentino, Senior Vice President, Programming, CTV Networks. 
"Digital extensions to favourite television programs provide opportunities for 
fans to experience insider stories, said Andra Sheffer, Executive Director of 
theBell Fund which partially funded this project, and THE DARK CORNER offers 
MOTIVE fans something very special." 
THE DARK CORNER takes audiences deeper into the world of MOTIVE when a cold 
case comes to light with unexpected results. Each episode is a piece of a 
larger puzzle, allowing viewers to explore one intriguing aspect of the cold 
case that still torments MOTIVE's Staff Sergeant Boyd Bloom (Roger Cross, 
ARROW). Also featuring MOTIVE's Detective Brian Lucas (Brendan Penny, THE 
ASSISTANTS) and Dr. Betty Rogers (Lauren Holly, Any Given Sunday, NCIS), the 
story revolves around an incident in Bloom's past where he was injured by the 
gunfire that killed his rookie partner. This injury sidelined him to the desk 
job he has today. The case was never solved and Bloom wasn't permitted access 
to the case files.Ten years later, Lucas, a junior detective, stumbles upon 
a possible present-day lead in this old case. He is keen to dig into the past 
and Bloom seizes the opportunity to finally put this case to rest, but before 
Lucas and Bloom can solve the case, they have to figure out if they can even 
work together. 
MOTIVE airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ETon CTV (visitCTV.ca/Scheduleto
