Burden of Truth

About the Show

Season 3 of BURDEN OF TRUTH picks up one year later. Joanna Chang (Kristin Kreuk) and Billy Crawford (Peter Mooney) are working together in their new boutique law firm, Crawford Chang, but they’re discovering that living and litigating together has its challenges.

On a cathartic trip back to Millwood for a class reunion, an old friend, Kodie, turns Joanna’s life upside down when her children are removed by Millwood Family Services. Kodie believes she is the victim of a conspiracy and pleads for Joanna to help solve the case and bring her children back. To help her friend, Joanna must dig into the dark underbelly of Millwood to unearth evidence of a cluster of child apprehensions.

Joanna will take on an impossible-to-win case that will force her to confront a long-buried secret from her childhood that may threaten her relationship and partnership with Billy. After this case, nothing will be the same again.

BURDEN OF TRUTH is filmed in Winnipeg, and produced by ICF Films, Entertainment One (eOne) and Eagle Vision with executive producers Ilana Frank (“Rookie Blue,” “Saving Hope”), Linda Pope (“Saving Hope”), Adam Pettle (“Rookie Blue”), Jocelyn Hamilton (“Cardinal”), Brad Simpson, Jocelyn Hamilton (Mary Kills People, Cardinal), Eagle Vision’s Kyle Irving (Taken, Ice Road Truckers, Lovesick) and Kristin Kreuk (“Beauty And The Beast”). Co-Executive producers are Lisa Meeches (Taken, Ice Road Truckers) and Tyson Caron (Lovesick, Wynter).
