CBS Stations Have 'Leverage' for Fall 2012

The CBS Television Stations have acquired TNT's Leverage to air on weekends, starting this fall.
Trifecta Entertainment & Media is the distributor. Dean Devlin's Electric Entertainment produces the show, which was just picked up for its fifth season on TNT after averaging nearly 5 million viewers in season four, up 10%. CBS-owned TV stations in 13 markets, including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, will air the show.

Leverage stars Academy Award- winner Timothy Hutton as a former insurance investigator turned into a sort of modern-day Robin Hood, robbing from the rich and giving to the poor with his five-person team of grifters. Devlin executive produces, along with show creators John Rogers and Chris Downey.
