DESCRIPTION:
(from BET's press release, April 2020) Today, BET+ announces new series "DIGGSTOWN" has been added to its roster of original programming. The six-part series follows Marcie Diggs, played by Vinessa Antoine (General Hospital, Being Erica), a star corporate lawyer who, after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution, decides to reconsider her priorities. Set in the gritty arena of a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, the team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers - messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty, and gender bias. Marcie is driven by one thing - to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system. The BET+ original "DIGGSTOWN" is streaming now on BET+ (@BETplus).
