The Detail coming to Universal

Watch the latest detective series coming to you in June

This character driven, procedural, detective series will appeal to both Shondaland and Rizzoli and Isles fans. Hot on the heels of the Canadian broadcast, The Detail features a trio of kick-butt homicide detectives, battling crime on the streets while trying to keep their personal lives on the straight and narrow.

Watch the promo.

The show stars; Angela Griffin, Shenae Grimes-Beech and award-winning Canadian star Wendy Crewson. Shenae Grimes-Beech, who is best-known to DStv viewers for her role in the recent 90210 reboot and Scream 4 is excited to break the mold of being a ‘teen-show star’ and really flex her muscles as fierce and unapologetic, Jack. While Angela Griffin, who is very well-known in the UK for her roles in Emmerdale, Coronation Street, Waterloo Road and Boy Meets Girl loved exploring Toronto both during and after shooting and says, “This is an evolution of TV where we’ve had a predominantly male driven world of crime-drama, we’ve now three incredible fierce women leading it.” She continues, “we’re not playing stereotypical roles. We’re not the girlfriends or wives. We are complex, deep and we are women. We are the evolution for everyone to see.”

In the tradition of the strongly female shows that we are seeing of late, we also see powerful women behind the camera, including Executive Producer Ley Lukins (Saving Hope, Lost Girl), who is also series developer; Executive Producers Ilana Frank, Linda Pope (Saving Hope, Rookie Blue), Sally Wainwright (Last Tango in Halifax), and Nicola Shindler (Trust Me).

As Griffin says, “It’s an entertaining show with great crime and great script. It’s just a great show for people to watch. That’s it!”

The Detail will be coming to Universal TV (DStv Channel 117) in June, have a look at the teaser and keep checking back for more news on this highly-anticipated show!
