Orphan Black to jump from Space to CTV for encore


The announcement would have been sweeter had lead Tatiana Maslany snagged an Emmy nomination.

But Bell Media was still tub-thumping Thursday with news that Temple Street Productions’ Orphan Black will make the jump from its Space specialty channel to main CTV network for an encore run.

CTV will debut Orphan Black on conventional TV on Friday nights at 9 p.m. from Aug. 16, with the first season concluding in mid-October.

The second season of the BBC America co-production, comprising 10 episodes, will shoot in Toronto from September ahead of a premiere in spring 2014 on Space.
