CBS Announces Midseason Drama Premiere Dates

New Dramas 'The Red Line' and 'The Code' Premiere, 'Ransom' Returns

CBS has announced start dates for new dramas “The Red Line” and “The Code,” and the third season of Canadian drama “Ransom.” From producers Greg Berlanti and Ava DuVernay, and starring Noah Wyle, the event series “The Red Line” will debut Sunday, April 28 at 8 p.m. ET (after “God Friended Me”) wraps its first season. The eight episodes, which follows three very different Chicago families as they journey toward hope and healing after a tragedy connects them all, will be broadcast across four consecutive Sundays (from 8-10 p.m.).

“The Code” will premiere on Tuesday, April 9 at 9 p.m. ET before it moves into its regular Monday time period on April 15 (at 9 p.m. ET), after ‘Magnum, PI’ completes its season order. “The Code” is a drama about the military’s brightest minds who take on our country’s toughest legal challenges, inside the courtroom and out, in the only law office in the world where every attorney is trained as a prosecutor, a defense lawyer, an investigator – and a Marine.

“Ransom,” meanwhile, returns for its third season on Saturday, Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. ET. The series follows crisis and hostage negotiator Eric Beaumont and his team as they save lives when no one else can.
