On Lifetime’s provocative Mary Kills People, the touchy subject of euthanasia is wrapped in a dramedy that sees a doctor moonlight as a mercy killer. One of her inner circle of confidantes is her own sister, played by Toronto-born actor Charlotte Sullivan. The six-episode series, created by Tara Armstrong and from Rookie Blue showrunner Tassie Cameron, sees Caroline Dhavernas play Dr. Mary Harris — the doctor called upon by those who are at the end of life and want out with dignity.

It's hard to imagine how any show can put a comedic spin on the topic of euthanasia, or assisted suicide.
Yet Mary Kills People Season 1 Episode 1, "Bloody Mary," manages to put a darkly humorous filter on this potential downer of a subject.
Not that they take a flippant approach at all. Dr. Mary Harris is a true believer in the compassionate nature of her side business.
It is a service and a privilege she undertakes for her patients.
We're afraid because we don't know what to expect.... but just because there's uncertainty doesn't mean that there's anything to fear

There's no rushing the process for Mary no matter what how often wham-bam-thank-you-doc Des might nudge her to pick up the pace.
Her patients need to be ready and willing to take that final drink. »

But unlike the protagonist of Dhavernas’ former series, Hannibal, the lead in Lifetime’s new drama ends lives for mercy — not art (or dinner).

The Mary Kills People TV show debuts on Lifetime on April 23, 2017 at 10:00pm. The six-episode black comedy medical drama is a Canadian TV series that first aired on Global TV back January and February of this year. While Mary Kills People has not been cancelled or renewed for season two on Global, creator Tara Armstrong and star Caroline Dhavernas -- a veteran of cancelled TV series Hannibal and Wonderfalls -- are hoping for a renewal.A scripted series about euthanasia, Mary Kills People also stars Jay Ryan, Richard Short, Lyriq Bent, Greg Bryk, Abigail Winter, Grace Lynn Kung, Katie Douglas, Alexandra Castillo, Sebastien Roberts, Lola Flanery, Natalie Lisinska, and Jess Salgueiro.Read More… »

The Canadian actress -- who sunk her teeth into characters like Jaye Tyler on the short-lived whimsical dramedy Wonderfalls and Dr. Alana Bloom on the poetic psychological horror-thriller Hannibal -- is eagerly awaiting Showtime’s upcoming Twin Peaks revival. “I can’t wait,” the 38-year-old exclaims giddily over the phone during an early morning chat in April. “I’m beside myself. I don’t understand why I’m not a part of that show.”
Study Dhavernas’ resume and you’ll see why. As the aforementioned roles indicate (both notably with frequent collaborator Bryan Fuller, whose next project is Starz's American Gods adaptation), the Montreal, Quebec native has a knack for leaning into the quirky, the peculiar and the just plain weird -- and she’s absolutely Ok with that.

Cold Case veteran Tracie Thoms is joining the cast of Lifetime’s Bachelor-skewering drama series in a recurring role, our sister site Deadline is reporting.

And she won’t be competing with Quinn for men, either: The description calls her “a fun-loving, gorgeous gay woman with swagger.”

“Mary Kills People” is a smart, entertaining series that understands, on a core level, that nobody really wants to watch a TV show about medically assisted suicide. Use of that phrase so early in this review may send some running for the exits, but that would be a mistake. “Mary Kills People” is an energetic, savvy program that combines elements of crime thrillers, medical soaps, and propulsive character drama, employing all those recognizable forms to illuminate the complexity of the knotty issues at its core.
Anchored by a charismatic performance from star Caroline Dhavernas, “Mary Kills People,” a Canadian import, resembles its lead character’s specially prepared doses of life-ending medication: It combines the dark stuff with a dollop of fizzy champagne. With a fraction of the resources of most American shows but a surfeit of ideas and frisky energy, this Lifetime drama supplies one of the most impressive debuts of the year.

Actor Caroline Dhavernas began her career in French-Canadian television, with roles that probably played big in Quebec but not many other places. After starring in some notworthy indie dramas like Edge Of Madness, however, she finally gained wider recognition on Bryan Fuller’s charming and addictive Wonderfalls, a short-lived delight of a series that almost no one saw when it was on but has found an afterlife as a cult hit. From there, she’s gone on to an impressive career, toggling comfortably between film and TV in projects like Hollywoodland, Breach, Off The Map, and most notably spending three seasons on NBC’s superlative Hannibal. We caught up with her at SXSW, where she was promoting her new indie Easy Living, about a self-destructive door-to-door makeup saleswoman. Also, her new Lifetime series, Mary Kills People, about an ER doctor who covertly moonlights as a Dr. Kevorkian type helping people »
