Today’s Lede Stories

Thursday, July 18

The entire world came to a halt almost 50 years ago, on July 20, 1969, to witness man land on the moon for the very first time. But, it was a terrifying experience for the people who actually made it happen. Those unsung heroes are showcased in Discovery Canada’s original documentary MAKE IT TO THE MOON which enjoys a repeat airing on Saturday, July 20 at 9 p.m. ET on CTV, and also becomes available for streaming on Crave. In an interview with TV critic Bill Harris for The Lede, spacesuit engineer Homer Reihm recalls what was going through his mind as he watched astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong: "Get up that ladder!"

Here's a fact that doesn't need to be investigated, even by a sleuth as resourceful as VERONICA MARS: Actress Kristen Bell, who plays Veronica, turns 39 today. After a 12-year hiatus, the highly anticipated fourth season of the enduring and endearing series has “grown up” and is coming to Crave next week, on Friday, July 26. In the meantime, the first three seasons of VERONICA MARS are available for streaming, only on Crave.

Speaking of VERONICA MARS, it's one of many marquee Bell Media series presenting star-packed panels at the 50th Comic-Con, which is officially under way in San Diego. Among the shows on hand: new CTV series STUMPTOWN and EMERGENCE; HBO’s HIS DARK MATERIALS, starring Lin-Manuel Miranda, GAME OF THRONES, which just collected a record 32 Emmy® nominations, and WESTWORLD; STARZ’s THE ROOK; the beloved Space series WYNONNA EARP; and a panel titled STAR TREK Universe, which includes Space's STAR TREK: DISCOVERY and PICARD.
