CBC has unveiled its winter schedule (see our calendars for days and dates), outlining the return of X Company, Schitt’s Creek and Michael: Every Day and the debut of Workin’ Moms, Bellevue andâ€”a show we’re particularly excited aboutâ€”Pure.
Created by Michael Amo (The Listener)â€”and based on real eventsâ€”Pure tells the story of Noah Funk (Ryan Robbins, Continuum), a Mennonite pastor whose life is upset when he attempts to drive drug dealing out of his community … and finds himself drawn into it. Along for the dramatics in the six-episode first season are Alex Paxton-Beesley (Murdoch Mysteries) as Noah’s wife, Anna; AJ Buckley (Justified) as cop Bronco Novak; Peter Outerbridge (ReGenesis) as Eli Voss; Jessica Clement as Noah and Anna’s daughter, Tina; Gord Rand (Orphan Black) as Noah’s brother, Abel; and Rosie Perez (Fearless) as DEA Agent Phoebe O’Reilly.
We were lucky enough to score a set visit to Halifax to chat with everyone involved in Pureâ€”look for stories closer to broadcastâ€”but in the meantime, here are a few photos to get you prepped for the series debut.
Pure debuts Monday, Jan. 9, at 9 p.m. on CBC.
