Diggstown

About the Show

Created by Floyd Kane (Across the Line) and set in the gritty arena of legal aid, DIGGSTOWN (6x60) is a drama focused on Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system. DIGGSTOWN is the first original Canadian drama featuring a black female lead character.

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 as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.

A CBC original drama, DIGGSTOWN is produced by Circle Blue Media. Floyd Kane is creator, executive producer and showrunner, and Amos Adetuyi (Across the Line) is executive producer. Production will begin in Halifax in fall 2018.
