From a media release:
Muse Distribution International and Anchor Bay Entertainment Canada Premieres Durham County: Season One On DVD September 9, 2008
Muse Distribution International has engaged Anchor Bay Entertainment Canada, a leader in the crime and horror genre, as its exclusive service agent in Canada to distribute Durham County, the sophisticated and powerful series that explores violence in a suburban setting, in the Canadian home entertainment market. This title will be available for the first time ever on DVD September 9, 2008 in a three disc set packaged in a stunning foil slip case. Season two of Durham County is heading into production this fall and will premiere on The Movie Network (eastern Canada) and Movie Central (western Canada) in spring 2009.
Durham County is an emotionally compelling six-episode dramatic series that combines police procedural with an intense family drama. It explores the complex relationship between a homicide cop, Mike Sweeney, played by Hugh Dillon (Hard Core Logo, Flashpoint) and his adversary, Ray Prager, who appears to be a serial killer, played by Justin Louis (Trump Unauthorized). They have a shared history that goes all the way back to high school; as well as unfinished business and dark secrets. You think you can leave your past behind. But you can’tâ€¦
HÃ©lÃ¨ne Joy (Murdoch Mysteries) plays Sweeney’s wife Audrey who has recently returned home from the hospital after a battle with breast cancer, and Laurence Leboeuf (Human Trafficking) is their 16 year old daughter with a dark streak. Ray’s wife Traci, Sonya Salomaa (The Collector), is a knockout blonde in her early thirties and Greyston Holt (A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story) is their son Ray Jr, a talented writer who is belittled by his father and an outsider at school.
They say there are only six degrees of separation between you and anyone else in the world, but sometimes it’s not even that. Sometimes the most brutal evil you can imagine is already in your world. Sometimes he’s just across the street.
