The dramatic series King will premiere on Showcase, a Canadian cable network, on April 17 at 9 PM. The show was created by Bernard Zukerman and Greg Spottiswood.
In this procedural drama, we follow Jessica King (Amy Price-Francis), a detective from the Toronto Police Department (TPD). When Sgt. Derek Spears (Alan Van Sprang) has a televised meltdown, the TPD's Major Crimes Task Force designates her as its new lead investigator. King accepts the challenge even though she survived 8 years in the Homicide section, two marriages and multiple stab wounds.
This eight-part series also stars Gabriel Hogan (The Kennedys), as Danny Sless, Jessica’s third husband and fellow police officer; Tony Nardi (Cra$h & Burn), as Police Chief Peter Graci; Suzanne Coy (Dan for Mayor), as Eleni Demaris, King's trusted subordinate; Zoe Doyle (The Border), as Det. Mk Gordon; and Aaron Poole (ZOS: Zone of Separation) as Det. Jason Collier.
