CBS announced the premiere dates for their upcoming mid-season dramas, one of them of course is Luke’s new show ‘The Code‘. Are you excited to see Luke back on your tv screen?
The Code will have a special premiere on Tuesday, April 9 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) before it moves into its regular Monday time period on April 15 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), after MAGNUM P.I. completes its season order. THE CODE is a drama about the military’s brightest minds who take on our country’s toughest legal challenges, inside the courtroom and out, in the only law office in the world where every attorney is trained as a prosecutor, a defense lawyer, an investigator – and a Marine.
“Giving THE CODE a special premiere on Tuesday, the night after the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship plus the powerful lead-in of NCIS, provides two strong promotional platforms,” said Kelley. “When it moves to its regular slot on Mondays at 9:00, it will pair well with BULL to form a compatible two hours of high-quality legal dramas.”
