From a media release:
With production now underway in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Circle Blue Entertainment, Freddie Films Inc., and DHX Media today announced additional casting for new CBC original drama Diggstown (6×60). Created by Halifaxâ€™s Floyd Kane (Across The Line), the series is set for a winter 2019 broadcast and streaming premiere on CBC, the CBC TV app and cbc.ca/watch.
The series follows Marcie Diggs (Vinessa Antoine, Being Erica, Heartland), a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias. Joining Antoine is a star-studded cast including Natasha Henstridge (Species), C. David Johnson (Street Legal), Stacey Farber (Grace and Frankie), Brandon Oakes (Arctic Air), Shailene Garnett (Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments), Tim Rozon (Wynonna Earp), and Dwain Murphy (Titans).
A CBC original drama, Diggstown is co-produced by Circle Blue Entertainment, Freddie Films Inc., and DHX Media. Kane is creator, executive producer and showrunner, and Amos Adetuyi (Jean of the Jones), Brenda Greenberg (Being Erica) and Todd Berger (Wynonna Earp) are executive producers. Kelly Makin (Saving Hope) is the pilot director and executive producer. For CBC, Sally Catto is General Manager, Programming; Helen Asimakis is Senior Director, Scripted Content; and Deborah Nathan is Executive in Charge of Production.
