A new legal drama is headed for a run on broadcast this summer after the announcement today from the CW that it has acquired “Burden of Truth” from Entertainment One.
The series stars Kristin Kreuk (“Smallville,” “Beauty And The Beast”) as a big city lawyer who returns to her hometown to take on what she thinks is a simple case, only to find herself in a fight for justice for a group of sick girls. The show is set for a 10-episode run.
“Burden of Truth” also stars Peter Mooney (“Rookie Blue”), Alex Carter (“NCIS”), Benjamin Ayres (“Saving Hope”), Nicola Correia-Damude (“Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments”), Meegwun Fairbrother (“Hemlock Grove”) and newcomer Star Slade.
The series is produced by ICF Films, eOne, and Eagle Vision. It is created by Brad Simpson (“Rookie Blue,” “King”) and is executive produced by Kristin Kreuk, Ilana Frank (“The Eleventh Hour,” “Saving Hope,” “Rookie Blue”), Linda Pope (“Saving Hope,” “Rookie Blue”), and Jocelyn Hamilton (“Mary Kills People,” “Cardinal”).
The series premiere date and time will be announced later.
