Designed internally by the Bell Media team, the new look reflects the channel’s emphasis on exclusive shows like PicnicFace and the stars, Sally Basmajian, VP and GM, comedy and drama, Bell Media tells MiC.

It is also designed to showcase the channel’s programming strategy, with CTV comedies like Up All Night and Whitney airing during primetime on The Comedy Network.

The new look will be showcased across the Bell Media platforms, says Basmajian.
