Rob Blackie and Peter Blackie created the six-episode, one-hour drama.
Canadian director Brad Peyton will helm the first two episodes.
The cast also includes Alun Armstrong, Landon Liboiron, Zoe Boyle, and Allan Hawco.
Canadian independent producers Take the Shot Productions and Factory Backwards are behind the show.
It will debut next year in Canada on Bell Media platforms including Discovery, Discovery GO, and CraveTV, and on Netflix in international markets.
