Storyline

The series follows Daisy Channing (Elyse Levesque), a young reporter trying to balance a messy personal life with a burgeoning career. Things begin to go sideways for Daisy when she witnesses a murder she thinks is gang-related, only to find herself slowly drawn into an interconnected web of criminal and illicit sexual activity that reaches into the corridors of corporate and political power. It's the kind of story that will destroy lives, including those of her own family. With help from lead homicide detective Kevin Lutz (Lyriq Bent), her editor Mary Foster (Alex Kingston) and co-worker Simon Olenski (Lucas Bryant), Daisy uncovers a cover-up so scandalous it could bring down the government.

A nice body of Canadian Drama! Keeps you wanting more... I had the pleasure to work on the project and the dedication of cast and crew was exemplary. Jennifer, Sudz and their team worked very hard to create a body of work to be proud of, glad CBC picked it up. Look forward to second season.
