The CW Announces New Fall 2018 ‘One Magnificent Morning’ Line-Up

NETWORK ADDS THREE NEW ORIGINAL E/I SERIES TO ITS BLOCK

TARGETING TEENS AND FAMILIES

Burbank, CA (September 11, 2018) – The CW, in association with Litton Entertainment, today announced the addition of three new E/I series, Did I Mention Invention?; Ready, Set, Pet; and Welcome Home to its award-winning One Magnificent Morning Saturday morning (8:00-11:00am ET/PT) family programming line-up, starting October 6, 2018.

Each of these dynamic new series tell inspirational stories that highlight the importance of community engagement, pursuing one’s dreams, and overcoming challenges.  Also joining the line-up will be Daytime Emmy-nominated The Wildlife Docs, taking viewers behind the scenes with an elite team of veterinarians, technicians and trainers as they care for more than 12,000 exotic animals. This Old House: Trade School and Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hidden Heroes will continue to educate and inspire audiences on One Magnificent Morning.

Did I Mention Invention? is hosted by Alie Ward from her home base of The Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich. She brings viewers fascinating stories of invention while shining a light on everyday innovators. With each episode, Alie will present reports of human ingenuity and inspiration from around the United States and in some cases, around the world. Viewers will learn about innovators young and old, what it takes to bring their vision to life, and little-known facts about the history and process of invention and innovation. Did I Mention Invention? will ignite a spark within the hearts and minds of audiences, encouraging viewers to try their own hand at creating something new.

Hosted by Phil Torres and co-produced by Hearst Originals, Ready, Set, Pet will educate and inform teens and their families about pet adoption, responsible pet ownership, and the importance of a green space for pets. In each episode, Phil will guide a family through the pet adoption process after a careful look at their unique situation to help them make an informed decision in finding the right pet for their lifestyle. While the family visits local shelters and rescues, experts revitalize their outdoor space to make a safe and eco-friendly home for their new pet. In the end, viewers will see family members overcome their disagreements and make the tough decision on which pet will join the family. Ready, Set, Pet will teach viewers that thoughtful preparation is key when learning to care for an animal’s needs.

Welcome Home follows hosts Rob and Treger Strasberg as they run a non-profit dedicated to helping deserving families in transition by turning their house into a home with their motto, ‘design with dignity’– and changing lives along the way. In each episode, we meet a family emerging from difficult circumstances as they finally move into a new living space to call their own. To help the family with their fresh start, Treger, Rob, and a dedicated team of designers and volunteers will transform the family’s bare house into a warm home by using goods and services donated by people in the community.  The new home will provide much-needed stability to meet the family's specific needs, stimulate their interests, and promote their goals. Welcome Home is coproduced in partnership with BYUtv and will teach viewers the importance of giving back in their communities, to never give up when faced with a tough situation, and to have gratitude for the basic living necessities that we often take for granted.

THE FIFTH SEASON OF “CBS DREAM TEAM, IT’S EPIC!” PREMIERES SEPT. 30

CBS announced today that the fifth season of CBS DREAM TEAM, IT’S EPIC!, the three-hour Saturday morning block, will premiere Saturday, Sept. 30 (9:00 AM-12:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

The CBS DREAM TEAM Saturday morning lineup is a diverse, family-friendly schedule featuring compelling shows and stories of hope and compassion designed to enlighten, teach and inspire viewers to make a greater commitment to themselves, their families and their communities. The block is FCC educational/informational compliant, targeted to 13- to 16-year-olds and appealing to all viewers.

The following series will return to THE CBS DREAM TEAM, IT’S EPIC! Saturday morning lineup:

 

LUCKY DOG

Emmy Award-winning host and animal trainer Brandon McMillan works with animal shelters across the U.S. to save one dog at a time, as he rescues lonely, unwanted dogs living without hope. Then, back at Brandon’s training facility known as the Lucky Dog Ranch, he goes to work on the seemingly impossible task of turning the frightened pooches into perfect pets. “From hopeless to a home” is Brandon’s mission, which he brings to life in each episode as a lucky family adopts an even luckier dog. LUCKY DOG received a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Class Series in 2016.

 

DR. CHRIS PET VET

Chronicling the adventures of Dr. Chris Brown, DR. CHRIS PET VET allows viewers a unique insight into the life of one of the world’s busiest vets and the animals he devotes his days to caring for and treating. For those animals that require specialist services, Dr. Chris calls on his good friend and colleague Dr. Lisa Chimes, who works at a small animal specialist hospital. Each episode leaves viewers with a sense of hope and survival via a carefully crafted mix of human and animal interest stories, featuring a variety of animals.

 

THE HENRY FORD’S INNOVATION NATION

INNOVATION NATION, hosted by Mo Rocca of CBS SUNDAY MORNING, is a Daytime Emmy Award-winning celebration of the inventor’s spirit – from historic scientific pioneers throughout past centuries to the forward-looking visionaries of today. Each episode tells the dramatic stories behind the world’s greatest inventions – and the perseverance, passion and price required to bring them to life. Featuring a strong focus on “what if it never happened,” “the innovation by accident” and “junior geniuses” who are changing the face of technology, this series appeals to young viewers and their families. INNOVATION NATION received a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Writing Special Class in 2016.

 

THE INSPECTORS

THE INSPECTORS is a scripted dramatic series set in Washington, D.C., inspired by compelling real cases handled by the United States Postal Inspection Service. In the series, Preston Wainwright (Bret Green), a determined teen who is thriving after being paralyzed in a car accident, works as an intern assisting his U.S. postal inspector mom, Amanda (Daytime Emmy Award winner Jessica Lundy), to solve crimes that deal with everything from internet scams, identity and mail theft, to consumer fraud. In season three, Preston remains determined to walk again, through arduous training and the support of family, friends and co-workers, while he and Veronica (Erica-Marie Sanchez) go through the ups and downs of a young relationship. Also, Amanda continues to focus on being the best mother and inspector she can be; Noah (Harrison Knight) works on his film career while trying to grow and become independent from his family; and Veronica pursues a journalism career but runs into trouble when her integrity is questioned. THE INSPECTORS strives to educate young people about making the right choices in their daily lives, encourages open communication between teens and parents and includes positive messaging regarding living with disabilities, overcoming challenges, beating the odds and the power of perseverance. Terry Serpico also stars. The United States Postal Inspection Service, the nation’s oldest federal law enforcement agency, will serve as the show’s official programming resource.

 

THE OPEN ROAD WITH DR. CHRIS

THE OPEN ROAD WITH DR. CHRIS is hosted by renowned veterinarian Dr. Chris Brown, who also hosts DR. CHRIS PET VET. Complementing Dr. Chris’ dedication to animal care and environmental stewardship, he embarks on an extraordinary journey around the globe, introducing young people to exhilarating experiences, from hiking in the heart of a volcano to swimming with humpback whales. Each episode will feature Dr. Chris in a culturally diverse destination where he will uncover the best- kept secret of the region. Whether he’s exploring the history of the Chilean capital or coming face-to-face with a live volcano in Vanuatu, THE OPEN ROAD WITH DR. CHRIS is the viewer’s passport to a rare educational adventure.
