The supporting cast includes David Cubitt (Medium), David Ferry (Legion), Matthew Edison (The Girlfriend Experience), Ben Bass (Rookie Blue), and Al Mukadam (Second Jen)
The ensemble drama centers on three fiercely talented female homicide investigators who work tirelessly to solve crimes while navigating the complicated demands of their personal lives.

Wendy Crewson plays Staff Inspector Fiona Currie, the homicide unit’s formidable boss, who works overtime to secure justice, no matter what the cost. Shenae Grimes-Beech stars as street smart Detective Jacqueline ‘Jack’ Cooper, with keen investigative skills, but a messy personal life. Angela Griffin stars as Detective Stevie Hall, a sharp quick-witted interrogator who is Jack’s mentor – even while she balances the demands of work and
her complicated family life.
David Cubitt plays Detective Kyle Price, who just happens to be Stevie’s (Griffin) old flame and new co-worker at the division. David Ferry takes on the role of Harry Barker, Stevie’s step-father and a retired cop. Matthew Edison plays Stevie’s husband Jono Hall. Ben Bass as Marc Savage, Jacqueline’s silver-tongued boyfriend. Al Mukadam is the well-connected Detective Aaron Finch and Matt Gordon plays the surly yet lovable lug of homicide, Detective Donnie Sullivan.

All distribution rights are handled by eOne.
