WHITE PINE PICTURES ANNOUNCES START OF PRODUCTION ON NEW CBC TELEVISION DRAMA SERIES “CRACKED”
- Starring David Sutcliffe, Stefanie von Pfetten, Luisa d’Oliveira, Dayo Ade, Karen LeBlanc
White Pine Pictures announced today that principal photography began July 16th, 2012 on the new drama series Cracked, for CBC Television. Shooting will take place in Toronto, Ontario, through November 30, 2012 with the hour-long series (13 episodes) premiering on CBC in January 2013.
Starring David Sutcliffe (Gilmore Girls, Private Practice) as Detective Aidan Black and Stefanie von Pfetten (NCIS, Battlestar Galactica) as Psychiatrist Dr. Daniella Ridley, the drama series partners an unstable police detective (Sutcliffe) with a psychiatrist (von Pfetten) to solve the city’s most baffling and psychologically complex crimes. The dynamic all-Canadian cast also features Luisa d’Oliveira (The Secret Circle, 50/50) as Detective Poppy Wisnefski, Dayo Ade (Lost, NCIS Los Angeles) as Psychiatric Nurse Leo Beckett, and Karen LeBlanc (Shattered, Nurse.Fighter.Boy) as Inspector Diane Caligra.
Cracked is White Pine’s second drama series for CBC. Their first, The Border, ran for three successful seasons and was sold to 21 countries. “We’re thrilled to be collaborating with the CBC again”, says executive producer Peter Raymont, president of White Pine Pictures. “Cracked is a gripping, compassionate portrayal of emotional problems that affect so many people and touch us all. It’s compelling television with heart.”
The original series is created by writer Tracey Forbes (Flashpoint, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Toronto Emergency Task Force officer Calum de Hartog and executive produced by Peter Raymont and Janice Dawe of White Pine Pictures. Forbes will act as showrunner along with Janet MacLean (The Border). Jamie Paul Rock and de Hartog will produce. Susan Morgan is the show’s creative producer and White Pine’s Caroline Murphy is associate producer. Director of Photography is Norayr Kasper (St. Urbain’s Horsemen). Nataline Rodrigues is the CBC Executive in Charge of Production overseeing this project.
Cracked is produced by White Pine Pictures in association with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and with the participation of the Canadian Television Fund and Cogeco. Distributed internationally by Beta Film GmbH and White Pine Releasing. Represented in the US by Carrie Stein.
