New tonight: Republic of Doyle on CBC – series premiere “Fathers and Sons”

A new father-and-son P.I. series starring Allan Hawco as the unpredictable and irresistible rogue private investigator. Set against the backdrop of the eccentric underbelly of contemporary St. John’s, Newfoundland. Sean McGinley co-stars as Doyle’s partner-in-solving-crime father. The series also features Lynda Boyd, Rachel Wilson, Krystin Pellerin, Mark O’Brien and Marthe Bernard.

Series I – Eps 1 – Fathers and Sons – The Doyles help a close family friend beat a manslaughter charge despite the fact that he refuses to defend himself; Jake’s relationship with his ex-wife, Nikki, is heating up when it should be cooling down – and new cop on the block Constable Leslie Bennett might be the perfect distraction.
