Electric Entertainment Announces High-Tech Drama "Leverage" Will Air In Syndication Starting September 15th

Los Angeles, CA (September 11, 2012) Electric Entertainment's hit TV series Leverage will begin a syndication run starting September 15th, announced today by Dean Devlin, CEO of Electric Entertainment. Distributor Trifecta Entertainment & Media has cleared the show in over 95% of the country including the CBS owned stations as their launch group, as well as several stations from the Sinclair and Hearst groups.

Academy Award(R) winner Timothy Hutton stars in this clever and compelling drama, along with Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf and Aldis Hodge. Since premiering in 2008, Leverage has become a fan favorite, with millions of loyal viewers captivated by the show for a solid five season run.

"We have been thrilled and honored by the millions of viewers who have tuned in over the years to be a part of our loyal Leverage fan base," said Executive Producer, Dean Devlin (INDEPENDENCE DAY, TNT's THE LIBRARIAN movie series). "Now through syndication, we look forward to introducing the Leverage high-tech heist team to an even larger audience starting this September."

Leverage follows a team led by former insurance sleuth turned thief, Nate Ford (Hutton). His cohorts include Sophie Devereaux (Bellman), a brilliant grifter; Eliot Spencer (Kane), a retrieval specialist; Alec Hardison (Hodge), a gadget and technology wizard; and Parker (Riesgraf), a slightly off-center thief adept at rappelling off buildings. Together, they try to level the playing field for people whose lives have been destroyed by the rich and powerful.

    So does that help its renewal chances?

  • Kathy

    But nothing about it being renewed? I hope it is soon!

  • lucy

    Tell me this dosen’t mean TNT isn’t picking it up next year.Or is this for already made shows?

  • Jayden

    This is great for Leverage. Hopefully this will keep giving the show great viewers, n hopefully a good chance at renewing it for a season 6. C’mon let’s renew this show TNT. Such a great show with a great cast!

  • Kent

    While this is nice for the show in terms of syndication since it allows those who don’t have TNT to watch it, it would be nice to learn if the show will be back for a sixth season. If TNT doesn’t renew the show, they’re making a mistake.

  • chrisjozo

    It’s already in syndication on ION tv.

  • Martin

    While the ratings are down a lot, i think it could be renewed as after this season ends it will have 77 episodes and i’d say it could go for at least eleven more and make it the magic 88, but do think that if it is renewed next season will be its last.

  • cimmer

    @chrisjozo, agree, isn’t Leverage already in syndication? I see it on the Ion Direct TV cable channel and the local Ion channel here in the Bay Area every Sunday, five Leverage eps in a row. Maybe Ion doesn’t count?

    Please renew the show. It is one of the few fantastic show on TVLand.
