Canadian crime drama gets its Free to Air premiere on 9GEM.
Canadian crime drama Coroner will have its Free to Air debut on 9GEM this Sunday.
Three seasons have previously aired in Australia on the Universal channel.
It centres around a newly appointed coroner, played by Serinda Swan, who investigates suspicious, unnatural and sudden deaths in Toronto. It also features Roger Cross as Det. Donovan “Mac” McAvoy.
Everybody has a story. Inspired by the best-selling series of books by M.R. Hall and created by Morwyn Brebner (Saving Hope, Rookie Blue), Coroner is a character-driven, close-ended episodic drama about Dr. Jenny Cooper-a recently widowed, new coroner who investigates suspicious, unnatural or sudden deaths in Toronto.
Reflecting the rich diversity of the city, each death brings Jenny into a new arena and sparks on buzzworthy themes. Jenny taps into her intuition as much as her intellect and heart as she solves cases with the help of homicide detective Donovan McAvoy, a man who isn’t afraid of challenging the status quo; pathologist Dr. Dwayne Allen and 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 and her teenage son, Ross, who is still grieving the death of his father, and the prospect of starting a new relationship with the enigmatic Liam. Everybody has a story-and Jenny must figure out the story her own body is telling.
8:40pm Sunday August 1 on 9GEM.
