TvLine has reported Kristin Kreuk is to star in the untitled legal drama that has been ordered straight to series at CBC.
The Canadian Broadcasting Company (CBC) has placed a 10-episode straight-to-series order for a untitled small-town legal drama starring and exec produced by the Smallville and Beauty and the Beast actress.
The project, from writer Brad Simpson (King, Rookie Blue), centers on Joanne, a fast-rising attorney who leaves her fancy big-city corporate job to tackle a controversial case in her hometown. And she ends up staying put.
Production is slated to begin this summer in Winnipeg. There’s no official word on a U.S. home for the series.
I know I’m excited for Kristin to be back in a new series! Let’s hope it finds a tv home in the U.S.
Good luck Kristin with the new series!
