CTV recently announced that production has begun on The Detail, the network’s new, one-hour, detective series. The 10-episode ensemble drama centers on three fiercely talented female homicide investigators who work tirelessly to solve crimes while navigating the complicated demands of their personal lives.

The new series stars the award-winning Wendy Crewson (Saving Hope, Room), along with Shenae Grimes-Beech (90210, Degrassi: The Next Generation), and U.K. talent Angela Griffin (Coronation Street, Brief Encounters).

From the producing and writing team behind the hit TV series Saving Hope, The Detail is set to premiere as part of CTV’s 2017/2018 schedule and will continue to shoot in and around Toronto until July 25, 2017. The series has also been picked up by ION Television for broadcast in the U.S.

Shenae Grimes-Beech stars as street smart Detective Jacqueline ‘Jack’ Cooper, with keen investigative skills, but a messy personal life. Angela Griffin stars as Detective Stevie Hall, a sharp quick-witted interrogator who is Jack’s mentor – even while she balances the demands of work and her complicated family life. Wendy Crewson plays Staff Inspector Fiona Currie, the homicide unit’s formidable boss, who works overtime to secure justice, no matter what the cost.

“We look forward to continuing our creative partnership with Ilana Frank and eOne on this dramatic detective series anchored by strong talented female characters and the actresses behind them,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President of Original Programming at Bell Media, in a media release. “The Detail offers a fresh take on the one-hour procedural with a unique blend of drama, investigation, action, and wit by these three women solving major crimes against the odds.”

“We share a passion for this project, for these characters, and for entertaining audiences with realistic, human, and engaging stories,” said Adam Pettle, Co-Showrunner and Executive Producer. Ley Lukins, Co-Showrunner and Executive Producer added, “We can’t wait to introduce people to Jack Cooper, Stevie Hall, Fiona Currie and all the other exciting characters, brought to life by our team of wonderful writers, actors, and crew to TV screens.”
