TORONTO (CP) — Cor­ner Gas alums Brent Butt, Nancy Robert­son and Fred Ewanuick re­turn to TV with two new sit­coms next month.

They in­clude Butt and Robert­son’s Hic­cups, about a dys­func­tional chil­dren’s au­thor played by Robert­son, with Butt (her re­al­life hus­band) serv­ing as writer/cre­ator in ad­di­tion to ap­pear­ing in the se­ries.

Ewanuick re­turns with Dan for Mayor, about a hap­less elec­toral can­di­date.

CTV says the shows will pre­miere back-to-back March 1.

Both fea­ture strong ties to Cor­ner Gas, which ended its cele- brated six-year run last year.

While Hic­cups is the brain­child of Gas star Butt, Dan for Mayor was cre­ated by Gas writ­ers Mark Far­rell, Paul Mather and Kevin White.

CTV says its new one-hour cop drama The Bridge will de­but March 5 with a two-hour pre­miere.

The se­ries stars Aaron Dou­glas ( Bat­tel­star Galac­tica) as a po­lice union leader bat­tling crime on the streets and cor­rup­tion among fel­low of­fi­cers.

The Toronto-shot show is a CBS-CTV co-pro­duc­tion but was ab­sent from the CBS lineup when the U.S. net­work re­vealed its sched­ule last month.
