(March 21, 2018 – Toronto, ON) This Sunday, CTV takes a bold leap with a new mid-season series titled The Detail. It’s a cop show, but the big twist here is the cops in question are three resilient female Homicide Detectives risking it all to get the job done.
Produced by Ilana Frank of ICF Films with Entertainment One (eOne) in association with CTV, The Detail costars British actor Angela Griffin as Detective Stevie Hallis, an experienced interrogator who can extricate information from suspects and witnesses alike, even while her thorny family life teeters on the edge of full-blown implosion. Her partner is Detective Jacqueline ‘Jack’ Cooper played by Canadian Shenae Grimes-Beech. Her character is astreet-smart rookie with a complicated personal life that threatens to eclipse the bright light of her policing prowess. The unit is overseen by larger-than-life Staff Inspector Fiona Currie, played by the award-winning Wendy Crewson. Currie is a formidable boss who works overtime to keep the weekly case board clear and the streets safe.
The premiere episode, entitled “Wake Up Call” airs Sunday, March 25 at 9 p.m. ET/MT on CTV and CTV GO).
“The Detail ushers in a new onscreen status quo – where a police procedural anchored by three strong female lead characters surprises no one,” said Mike Cosentino, President, Content and Programming, Bell Media. “The Detail is a powerful addition to our exciting mid-season and Sunday night slate, and we can’t wait for viewers to watch the action unfold and meet the show’s brilliant, funny, flawed, and very real characters.”
“I am proud to work with our partners at CTV and eOne on this timely female-led series,” said Ilana Frank, Executive Producer. “Angela, Shenae and Wendy perfectly capture these strong, complicated and authentically flawed characters that struggle against the obstacles that women face in their personal and professional lives every day.”
The all-star ensemble cast includes David Cubitt as Detective Kyle Price, Stevie’s old flame and new co-worker at the division; Matthew Edison as Stevie’s husband Jono Hall; Al Mukadam as the well-connected Detective Aaron Finch; and Matt Gordon as Detective Donnie Sullivan, the surly yet lovable lug of homicide.
Shot in and around Toronto during the summer of 2017, guest stars in the inaugural season include Ben Bass as Marc Savage, Jack’s silver-tongued boyfriend; David Ferry as Harry Barker, Stevie’s step-father and retired cop; as well as appearances by Shelia McCarthy, Sergio Di Zio, Kevin Hanchard, Huse Madhavji, Jordan Todosey, Kari Matchett, Latoya Webb, Rebecca Liddiard, Alex Carter, Mark Rendall, Ian D.
