NEW YORK, May 19, 2016 — The CW Network presented its 2016-17 schedule to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City today, kicked off by the rock band Fitz and the Tantrums performing their hit singles “Handclap” and “The Walker.” “We have four terrific additions to our schedule next season, and five great anchors at eight o’clock, every night of the week,” said Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW.
“The CW has become known as the home of the best, most creative series on broadcast television, in a range of genres that appeal to the most balanced audience of any broadcast network, and the series we have for next season will absolutely continue to fit that bill.
“We are thrilled to have SUPERGIRL on The CW this fall, joining our popular roster of DC heroes. Plus, we have three new series lined up for next season that perfectly fit our brand, with the smart, charming comedy NO TOMORROW and the high-stakes drama FREQUENCY this fall, and the subversive take on small-town life, RIVERDALE, at midseason. With these four new series added to the strongest, most competitive schedule we have ever had, The CW just keeps getting better.”
