Rogers Media has announced the winter line-up for its conventional network City.

It includes new medical drama The Resident and the new  comedy LA to Vegas, as well as returning shows such as the final season of Hulu’s The Mindy Project and another season of The Bachelor. City has also announced that the Grammy Awards will return to the network for its 60th annual show, with returning host James Corden.

The 30-minute comedy series LA to Vegas (pictured) is a workplace comedy that follows the crew of a budget airline that specializes in the round-trip junket flight from Los Angeles to Las Vegas on weekends. Starring Dylan McDermott (American  Horror Story), Ed Weeks (The Mindy Project) and Kim Matula (The Bold and the Beautiful), the series also boasts name recognition for creators Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (Anchorman). It premieres Jan. 2 and airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m., up against Global’s Bull and CBC’s Workin’ Moms.

In the drama department, The Resident follows an idealistic young doctor (Manish Dayal, The Hundred-Foot Journey) under the supervision of an unconventional senior resident (Matt Czurchy, The Good Wife). It’s set to air Mondays at 9 p.m. after a special Sunday premiere Jan. 21. In its regular spot, it will directly precede CTV’s own hit medical drama, The Good Doctor, which has been a ratings winner for most of the season, and it will compete against Frankie Drake on CBC, NCIS: New Orleans on Global and This is Us on CTV.

Mini-series Versailles will premiere Jan. 7 and hold the 10 p.m. time slot on Sundays. The new-to-City period drama focuses on the royal court of King Louis the XIV of France. Versailles first aired on Superchannel in 2015.

The 22nd season of The Bachelor will premiere Monday, Jan. 1, at 8 p.m., and move into the 7 p.m. time slow on the same weeknight starting Jan. 22. The sixth season of The Mindy Project will premiere Jan. 4 and air back-to-back episodes at 8 p.m. every Thursday night.

Additionally, the 60th Annual Grammy Awards will air live Sunday Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m.
