The Canadian comedy “Backpackers,” which the CW picked up for television after episodes aired on the website CW seed, premiered on the network earlier this month.

“Seed,” which also hailed from Canada and which the CW picked up for U.S. broadcast, follows a bachelor who ends up entangled in the lives of children that he fathered as a sperm donor.
