ION Television Signs Deal With Entertainment One for All-New Original Series "The Detail"

The Agreement Makes ION Television the Exclusive U.S. Home to the Procedural Crime Drama

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., May 01, 2017 -- ION Television today announced a deal with global independent studio Entertainment One (eOne), signing an agreement for the all-new original series "The Detail." The deal gives ION the exclusive U.S. television rights for current and future seasons of the procedural crime drama from ICF Films, eOne and Canadian broadcaster CTV. Production on the 10-episode first season is currently underway.

Shenae Grimes-Beech ("90210") stars as street-smart Detective Jacqueline 'Jack' Cooper, with keen investigative skills, but a messy personal life. Angela Griffin ("Coronation Street") 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 ("Saving Hope") plays Staff Inspector Fiona Currie, the homicide unit's formidable boss, who works overtime to secure justice no matter what the cost.

"'The Detail' is a bold new detective drama that distinguishes itself using smart storylines seen from a distinctly female viewpoint," said Brandon Burgess, Chairman and CEO, ION Media. "The contemporary narrative is one that will resonate with viewers and add depth to our growing lineup of original series."

"We are thrilled to join forces once again with ION to collaborate on another compelling new series," said John Morayniss, CEO, eOne Television. "With Ilana Frank's strong track record, we know that 'The Detail' will be an audience favorite for many seasons to come."

"The Detail" joins ION Television's library of scripted original programs, including "Private Eyes" and long-running series "Saving Hope," and a robust catalog of made-for-TV holiday movies. The series also joins ION's acclaimed library of hit series, including "Criminal Minds," "Law & Order: SVU" and "Blue Bloods."

"The Detail" was developed by Ley Lukins, who serves as Co-Showrunner and Executive Producer with Adam Pettle. Executive Producers are Ilana Frank, John Morayniss, and Linda Pope, with co-executive producers Jocelyn Hamilton, Sonia Hosko, and Greg Smith. Other writers include, Naledi Jackson, Sarah Goodman, Graeme Stewart Katrina Saville, Joe Pernice and Matt Doyle. Directors on the series include Greg Smith, Jordan Canning, Kelly Makin, Sara St. Onge, Grant Harvey, John Fawcett, and James Genn.

"The Detail" is produced by ICF Films with eOne in association with CTV, with the participation of the Canada Media Fund, the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit and the Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit.
