Hallmark Channel Schedule Change Has Return of Last Man Standing; Netflix Gets Busted with Variety Series

Last Man Standing

Looks like Last Man Standing is returning to Hallmark next week. We were mistaken about their rights expiring and moving to WGN America, as this now means the sitcom will be airing on local syndication, Freeform, CMT, Hallmark Channel and WGN America come April 30. Back to Hallmark, effective Monday, April 9, the 2-10pm slots will see schedule changes. Full House is moving to 2-6pm, while Last Man Standing will air 6-9pm, then an extra hour of The Middle is added from 9-10pm to expand its airings to 9-11pm. Everything else will remain as it is now, so look for The Golden Girls, Frasier, Cheers and I Love Lucy to remain in their current time periods.


Busted

Netflix, the world's leading internet entertainment service, announced that its first Netflix Original Korean variety show Busted! I Know Who You Are will launch on May 4, available exclusively to Netflix members globally. Busted! is a new type of K-variety where 7 main cast members position themselves as sloppy detectives that set out to solve a fun-filled mystery in each of the episodes. The show features an all-star K-variety cast including Yoo Jae-suk, Lee Kwang-soo, and Kim Jong-min. Ahn Jae-wook and Park Min-young took a step out of their acting roles and made their debut in the K-variety scene, while K-pop stars Sehun of Exo and Sejeong of Gugudan took the challenge of bringing the vibrant energy into the group of detectives. The show is also filled with special appearances from guest stars in each of the episodes to help complete the story.

The 10-episode season will be released 2 episodes per week starting on May 4. For the new unscripted show, Netflix teamed up with producers Jang Hyuk-jae, Cho Hyo-jin, and Kim Ju-hyung of Company SangSang, who has had a successful track record in the K-variety scene. Jang, Cho and Kim have took part in producing popular shows including Running Man and X-Man in Korea. Busted! will be available on Netflix globally in over 190 countries on May 4, 2018.
