‘The Listener’ to get 2-hour premiere

NBC has announced plans to expand the premiere of the U.S.-Canadian collaboration The Listener to two back-to-back episodes next week.

The new TV drama -- which was developed by Shaftesbury Films and Canadian broadcaster CTV and produced in association with CTV, FIC and NBC -- is slated to debut Thursday.

The show follows Toby Logan, a 25-year-old paramedic who is also a telepath. He is played by Craig Olejnik.

The cast also includes Colm Feore, Ennis Esmer, Lisa Marcos and Mylene Dinh-Robic.
