Pretty Hard Cases

About the Show

Co-created by Tassie Cameron (Mary Kills People, Ten Days in the Valley, Rookie Blue, The Robber Bride) and Sherry White (Little Dog, Frontier, Ten Days in the Valley, Rookie Blue)PRETTY HARD CASES is a fun and honest portrayal of two radically different female detectives in their early 40s. 

The action-packed series follows Guns and Gangs detective Sam Wazowski (Meredith MacNeill) and Drug Squad detective Kelly Duff (Adrienne C. Moore). By day, they are heroes in their particular way: skilled, tough, determined, and entertaining, fighting to do good in a broken system. But by night, they’re both grappling with loneliness, dysfunctional families, screwed-up love lives, and a sense that their professional ambitions may not be totally in line with their personal needs. Their friendship could help to balance each other out if only they didn’t drive one another utterly insane.

Season 3 of Pretty Hard Cases finds a miserably demoted Samantha Wazowski (Meredith MacNeill) and a deeply undercover Kelly Duff (Adrienne C. Moore) reuniting to win their way back into the OCE after eight long months apart. Although their professional relationship has never been stronger, Sam and Kelly are going to need to prove they’re worthy of the department’s top cases to a new and exacting Unit Commander. Still, the pair of detectresses have each other’s backs as they navigate big changes in their personal lives: Sam revisits a past romance with her ex, Steve, while Kelly is finally seeing how far things can go with Nathan. Just as things seem to be falling into place, a deadly new drug starts to appear on the streets of Toronto. Now Sam and Kelly must take down a gang of power-hungry gamers to stop the insidious drug at its source.

A CBC Original Series, PRETTY HARD CASES is produced by Cameron Pictures in association with CBC and NBCUniversal International Studios. The series is created by Sherry White and Tassie Cameron, who also serve as Co-Showrunners. Sherry White, Tassie Cameron, Amy Cameron and Alex Patrick are Executive Producers. For CBC, Sally Catto is General Manager, Programming; and Trish Williams is Executive Director, Scripted Content. NBCUniversal will handle global distribution.
