Chris Haddock’s Intelligence premieres Tuesday, Oct. 10 AT 9 P.M. ON CBC-TV

From a CBC media release:

INTELLIGENCE, the highly-anticipated new dramatic series from Chris Haddock (DaVinci’s Inquest, The Handler), starring Ian Tracey (DaVinci’s Inquest, Milgaard) and Klea Scott (Brooklyn South, Millennium), ignites the airwaves Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 9 p.m. on CBC Television.

The critically-acclaimed two-hour series pilot, to be re-broadcast on CBC-TV Tuesday, Sept. 26 at 8 p.m., just received five Gemini nominations for Best Television Movie, Best Writing (Haddock), Best Direction (Stephen Surjik) and Best Performance by Lead Actor and Actress for Tracey and Scott.

As delivered in the pilot, Intelligence promises a volatile first season laden with conspiracy, betrayal and reprisal, as both sides of the law play a cat-and-mouse game of exploitation and cover-up. The 13-part hour-long series picks up where the pilot left off. Jimmy Reardon (Tracey), third generation crime boss, and Mary Spalding (Scott), Director of Vancouver’s Organized Crime Unit (OCU), made deals with the devil-that is, each other. Jimmy agreed to work with Mary as a star informant, and Mary made a deal to protect Reardon from prosecution. Each will attempt to use the other without getting caught in the act.
