CBC, a Canadian TV network, has announced that its original police comedy series Republic of Doyle will be heading to Australia.
While no Australian premiere date has been announced for this Canadian TV series, it's confirmed that Republic of Doyle has been acquired by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Australia's public TV network.
In this TV series that takes place in St-John's, Newfoundland (an Atlantic province of Canada), we follow Jake Doyle (Allan Hawco), a private detective, and his dad, Malachy (Sean McGinley). Together, they try to crack cases that give headaches to the police department of St-John's. In his daily life, Jake has to deal with a wife, Nikki (Rachel Wilson), that he has divorced from and constable Leslie Bennett (Krystin Pellerin).
Other regular members of the cast include Lynda Boyd, Marthe Bernard, Mark O'Brien and Bob Cole.
Finally, a second season is currently in production and is very likely to be aired this winter on CBC.
