Coroner is inspired by the best-selling series of books by M.R. Hall and was created for television by Morwyn Brebner (Saving Hope). This character-driven drama is about Dr. Jenny Cooper (Serinda Swan), a recently widowed new coroner who investigates suspicious, unnatural or sudden deaths in Toronto. The series reflects the rich diversity of Toronto, and each case brings Jenny into a new arena in the city, touching on buzz-worthy contemporary themes.
