The CW Sets Premiere Date for New Drama 'Wild Cards' Starring Vanessa Morgan and Giacomo Gianniotti

The CW has today announced the premiere dates for its upcoming original drama series Wild Cards and the third season of its original drama series Family Law.

Both dramas will premiere on Wednesday, January 17 - with the first season of Wild Cards at 8/7c. and the third season of Family Law at 9/8c.

Wild Cards is a crime-solving procedural with a comedic twist that follows the unlikely duo of a gruff, sardonic cop and a spirited, clever con woman. Cole Ellis, a demoted detective, has begrudgingly spent the last year on the maritime unit, while Max Mitchell has been living a transient life elaborately scamming everyone she meets. When Max gets arrested and ends up helping Ellis solve a local crime, the two are offered the opportunity to redeem themselves, with Ellis going back to detective and Max staying out of jail. The catch? They have to work together, with each using their unique skills to solve crimes. For Ellis, that means hard-boiled shoe leather police work; for Max, it means accents, schemes and generally befriending everyone in sight, while driving Ellis absolutely nuts. The two will have to learn what it means to trust another person and maybe actually become partners.

The drama stars Vanessa Morgan, Giacomo Gianniotti and Jason Priestley.

Michael Konyves created the drama. He executive produces with James Genn, Shawn Piller, Lloyd Segan, Alexandra Zarowny, James Thorpe, Noelle Carbone and Morwyn Brebner. Blink49 Studios, Front Street Pictures and Piller/Segan produce.

Season 3 of Family Law follows Abby and her dysfunctional family as they help other dysfunctional families - all while navigating their own personal dramas. Clear of her probation and divorce, Abby is riding high at Svensson & Svensson - but the hard work of reckoning with her past is just beginning. She moves on to AA's Step Four - writing her moral inventory - and begins her nesting arrangement with Frank. On her off weeks, she still lives with her mother Joanne, whose rekindled relationship with Harry is churning up all of Abby's childhood trauma. Meanwhile, Harry revels in Abby and Daniel's cutthroat competition for top earner at the firm - until his reckless past comes back to haunt him. Daniel's romance with Martina is cut short when her boyfriend Quinn returns - and takes on a new layer of complexity when Quinn befriends Daniel. And Lucy, trying to find her feet after Maggie's betrayal, throws herself into a new relationship - one that she intends to make work no matter what.

The drama stars Jewel Staite, Victor Garber, Zach Smadu, Genelle Williams and Lauren Holly.

Susin Nielsen created the drama. She executive produces with Jordy Randall, Tom Cox, Erin Haskett and Andy Mikita. Entertainment One, SEVEN24 Films and Lark Productions produce.
