AXN refreshes weekend programming with 2 shows

MUMBAI: Refreshing its weekend line-up, English entertainment channel AXN is launching two new shows – the first season of ‘Limitless’ and the fourth season of ‘Elementary’ in its ‘Fresh From the US slot’.

Premiering on 21 November, ‘Limitless’ will air at 11 pm every Saturday while ‘Elementary’ will premiere on 22 November. The show will air at 10 pm every Sunday.

The two shows will air on AXN as well as AXN HD.

AXN India and Sony Pix EVP and business head Saurabh Yagnik said, “AXN offers the widest range of shows across diverse genres like premium reality, crime and edgy drama. In order to cater to the TG who seeks new and latest content that airs day-and-date with the US, we had created a specific slot ‘Fresh From The US’ wherein we have been programming the freshest shows and their latest seasons over the weekends. This exclusive slot is a perfect getaway for viewers to experience new, fresh stories, never-seen-before on Indian television. With premieres of iconic shows like Limitless and Elementary (season 4), we continue to live up to the brand promise of providing a thrilling entertainment experience.”

Starring Bradley Cooper, ‘Limitless’ is based on the 2011 film by the same name. The crime drama show features Jake McDorman and Jennifer Carpenter in the lead and is produced by Cooper himself.

In the show, protagonist Brian Finch (Jake McDorman) discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT. He is then forced by the FBI into using his extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them.

The channel will also present the latest season of the New York version of Sherlock, ‘Elementary’. Starring Jonny Lee Miller as detective Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr Joan Watson, ‘Elementary’ is the modern-day drama about a crime-solving duo that cracks NYPD’s most impossible cases.

‘Elementary’ season 3 finale left things in a fairly dark place for Sherlock and Watson. Now, in season 4, Holmes and Watson must rely upon one another to rebuild their lives, notwithstanding the untimely return of Sherlock’s estranged but wealthy father, Morland Holmes (John Noble).
