In the news: Durham County according to the NYT

From Alessandra Stanley of the New York Times:

  • You Think Life Is Mild North of the Border?
    “Any lingering illusion that Canada is a milder, blander version of the United States is dispelled by “Durham County,” a Canadian-made crime series that begins on Monday on the Ion network. It takes a while to realize that this scary, well-made thriller was not made in America. Durham County has all the signposts of a Hollywood production: lush theme music and stark cinematography, a brooding homicide detective, barbaric rapes and murders, philanderers, sociopaths, yoga moms and alienated teenagers.” Read more.

From Elizabeth Jensen of the New York Times:

  • Network’s New Energy Source: The Dark
    “If the series succeeds in the United States, Ion plans to take a greater creative role in Season 3, which will start shooting for Canadian television in October, said Leslie Chesloff, Ion’s executive vice president for programming.” Read more.

  1. ION seems to see what other american television networks can’t. ION is not available on my cable station, and too bad. I loved Durham County season 1 and looking forward to future seasons. So until american TV
    gets on board I guess I will continue to order Durham County when it releases season on DVD. It has all the drama of a Hollywood movie.

    Congrats to Canada
