The Verdict with Paula Todd: More on Jessie Foster’s story TBA
CTV Network with Paula Todd

Sunday to Thursday at 9pm ET on CTV Newsnet

The Verdict with Paula Todd gives viewers an in-depth look at the hard-hitting legal and justice news making headlines from around the world. From the Conrad Black trial and the latest developments in the Pickton case, to the fallout from sensationalized legal battles ripped from the headlines, Paula Todd will draw on her own experience and expertise to give Canadians a unique perspective on the high-profile crime and legal issues of the day. Todd will interview prominent newsmakers, lawyers, legal experts, criminals and victims. The program will also feature ongoing profiles of missing children and regular segments on Canadian fugitives.

"I am thrilled to return to live television with this smart, fast-paced, and edgy show. This will be the definitive television destination for legal and crime junkies in Canada - with all of the news, analysis, as well as the human perspective," said Todd. "There is nothing more dramatic than a criminal trial, and we'll be in Chicago for the Conrad Black case bringing Canadians the inside story."

"The success of television's CSI, Law and Order and Criminal Minds proves that Canadians have a tremendous thirst for all of the drama and excitement that surrounds criminal justice and legal news. We are extremely excited about being the first Canadian broadcaster to develop a nightly news program totally dedicated to criminal and legal affairs," said Robert Hurst, President of CTV News. "Paula Todd is the perfect host and will be a wonderful addition to the CTV Newsnet schedule."

The Verdict with Paula Todd will leverage the vast resources of CTV News - Canada's most-watched news division. It is the latest original news production from CTV News joining such popular news programs as W-FIVE, Question Period and Mike Duffy Live.

The Verdict with Paula Todd can also be seen, on demand and free, on the CTV Broadband Network, every night at 10:30 PM Eastern.
