A brand new one-hour drama comes to Universal TV ((DStv channel 117) next week.
The show, "Coroner," tells the story of Dr. Jenny Cooper, a recently-widowed, new coroner who investigates any suspicious, unnatural or sudden deaths in Toronto.
The series reflects the rich racial, class and gender diversity of the city. Each death brings Jenny into a new arena in the city, and sparks on buzzworthy themes. Jenny taps into her intuition as much as her intellect and heart as she solves cases along with the help of Homicide Detective Donovan McAvoy, a man who isn’t afraid of challenging status quo; pathologist Dr. Dwayne Allen, his assistant River Baitz; and Alison Trent, Jenny’s assistant who keeps it real. And while Jenny solves mysterious deaths, she also deals with clinical anxiety, a teenage son, Ross, who is still grieving the death of his father, and the prospect of starting a new relationship with the enigmatic Liam.
The eight-part series is directed by Adrienne Mitchell.
