Universal Channel

Universal Channel is thrilled to announce that it will air the captivating new drama Heartbeat, starring Melissa George and Don Hany and set to premiere in early 2016.

Based on the real life and achievements of Dr. Kathy Magliato, this unique character-driven medical drama follows Dr. Alex Panttiere (Melissa George) an outspoken world-renowned heart transplant surgeon and one of the few women in her field. Stubborn and fearless, Alex always operates on her own terms. She revels in a racy personal life that’s a full-time job in itself, manages the daily demands of skeptical faculty and dutiful interns, and pushes the boundaries of medical science to impressive new heights.

Don Hany stars as Dr. Jessie Shane, Alex’s former flame and mentor who returns to Los Angeles’ Saint Matthews Hospital as Head of Surgery and Alex’s new boss. Tensions rise as Alex now has to battle with her head and her heart.

Both George and Hany have achieved local and international success with combined roles in Mullholland Drive, Alias, Friends, Grey’s Anatomy, Tangle, Offspring, East West 101, and the critically acclaimed Devil’s Playground.

Other cast includes Dave Annable, Shelley Conn, D.L. Hughley, Jamie Kennedy, Maya Erskine, JLouis Mills and Joshua Leonard.

Heartbeat is coming soon to Universal Channel.

It’s been a long, agonising wait for Suits Season 5 part-two to come around, but trust us, it’s worth it.

Heading back to Foxtel’s Universal Channel on Thursday, January 28, Suits Season 5 resumes after a nail-biting finale.

Still with us? Then you’ll know what happened to Mike Ross (Patrick J Adams) at the end of Season 5 episode 10. He got busted.

After faking his way into the hearts and minds of a top New York law firm, Mike was inching his way up the legal ladder – despite not being the Harvard graduate people thought he was.

But in Season 5’s mid-season finale it all came crashing down. The last time we saw Mike he was being led away in handcuffs.

At this stage everyone’s under suspicion – even Harvey himself. Luckily, we don’t have long to wait for some answers.

Suits Season 5 (part two) returns at 8.30pm AEDT, January 28 on The Universal Channel.

NBC has axed Heartbeat after just one season - a rare ratings failure for its Aussie stars Melissa George and Don Hany.

NBC Universal has bought the rights to Canadian drama Coroner, produced for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. It will be shown in Australia (expected to be Universal Channel) from late 2019.

I miss Hallmark loved the re-runs on it

Seems like Universal TV is coming to Sky in NZ on channel 210. Begins April 30th.

And the new Universal Channel in NZ will have lots of Law & Order and Chicago franchise shows.

Pretty much all they’re highlighting in the promos. Sorry, promo. They’re only showing one promo on the channel space at the moment.
