NEW YORK, May 15, 2014 – The CW Network presented its 2014-15 broadcast schedule today to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City.
“This is a different CW than we were just a few years ago. Our audience is broader and more inclusive than it has ever been, and we are growing on-air and on all digital platforms,” said Mark Pedowitz, President, The CW.
“We just finished our most-watched season in three years, and our schedule is as strong as it has ever been, with more vibrant and more diverse programming. Next season, with super hero action shows like “Arrow” and “The Flash,” epic fantasies like “The Vampire Diaries” and “Reign,” the apocalyptic worlds of “The Messengers” and “The 100,” and the outrageous comedy of “Jane the Virgin” and “Whose Line Is It Anyway?,” we will build and expand our audience even more, and keep our momentum going with the kind of high-octane, high-impact entertainment that our viewers love.”
The CW will launch its fall season in October 2014, with premiere dates to be announced at a later time.
