OVATION TV SHOWS VIEWERS THE LOVE THIS FEBRUARY WITH STAR-STUDDED MONTH OF ARTFUL SERIES AND MOVIE PREMIERES

February Premieres Include X Company with évelyne Brochu and Jack Laskey; Season 11 of The Artful Detective; Marjorie Prime with Lois Smith, Jon Hamm, Geena Davis and Tim Robbins; and Manifesto starring Cate Blanchett

Los Angeles, CA - December 18, 2017 Ovation TV, America's only arts network, continues to bring premium content to its viewers with a jam-packed schedule during the month of February. Throughout the month, Ovation will debut season 11 of The Artful Detective and new series X Company, plus the broadcast premieres of indie films Marjorie Prime and Manifesto.

Inspired by the true story of Camp X, a top-secret Allied spy training facility in Lake Ontario, X Company follows the stories of five highly skilled young recruits, torn from their ordinary lives and trained to conduct one risky mission after another to help Allied forces change the world. The series stars évelyne Brochu (Orphan Black), Jack Laskey (Endeavour), Hugh Dillon (Flashpoint, Continuum), Warren Brown (Luther), Dustin Milligan (Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency, Schitt's Creek, 90210), Connor Price (Being Human) and Lara Jean Chorostecki (Designated Survivor, Hannibal). X Company will premiere on Monday, February 19 at 10pm ET.

The Artful Detective's twist-filled season 10 finale saw the futures of Detective Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) and the heroes of Station House No. 4 in jeopardy amidst a corruption investigation gone awry. Season 11 will pick up with the aftermath of the finale's events that left the lives of Murdoch's beloved Dr. Julia Ogden (Hélène Joy), Inspector Brackenreid (Thomas Craig) and Constables George Crabtree (Jonny Harris), Henry Higgins (Lachlan Murdoch), and Slugger Jackson (Kristian Bruun) at stake and their fates unknown. Season 11 storylines will feature a number of Canadian and international historical figures, including physician William Osler and Helen Keller, the return of artist Tom Thomson, President Theodore Roosevelt, and Alexander Graham Bell. Season 11 of The Artful Detective will air on Saturday, February 3 at 10pm ET.

Directed by Michael Almereyda, Marjorie Prime is a film based on Jordan Harrison's Pulitzer Prize-nominated play about an ailing 86-year-old woman's interaction with a holographic projection of her late husband. As Marjorie's "Prime" requires information from her and her family to develop a more complex understanding of his history, each family member begins to develop ever diverging accounts of their own lives and history. With rave reviews for performances given by Lois Smith, Jon Hamm, Geena Davis and Tim Robbins, the film has been also lauded for shining a light on the world of artificial intelligence and our concepts of morality. Marjorie Prime will have its broadcast premiere on Sunday, February 4 at 7pm ET.

Manifesto is a feature film based on the multi-screen film installation written, produced and directed by Julian Rosefeldt, which features Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett in 13 different roles performing various manifestos. The feature premiered in theatres earlier this year and will have its broadcast premiere on Sunday, February 11 at 7:30pm ET.

All series and films will also be available on Ovation NOW and VOD.
