The Listener, CTV – “The Taking”
Toby (Craig Olejnik) and Michelle (Lauren Lee Smith) investigate the abduction of an African teenager whose bodyguard, Kwesi (Toronto native K.C. Collins, A Day in the Life), was shot during an altercation. The case is nuanced and far-reaching because the victim, Ibrahim Ayim (Stephan James, THE L.A. COMPLEX), is the son of Abassi Ayim (Eugene Clark, former Toronto Argonauts offensive lineman), a deposed Liberian politician accused of defrauding his country of millions and committing a slew of atrocities. When the kidnappers send Ibrahim’s severed finger to prove the temerity of their ten million-dollar ransom demand, Michelle puts the pressure on Toby to make sense of the barrage of violent images he’s seeing.(Encore episode airing on Sunday, June 24 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV)
