It's one of the grittiest dramas on Canadian television today. Blackstone's controversial stories about corruption, sex, politics and the everyday people caught in the turmoil draws comparisons to shows like The Wire. It has even been called the Canadian Sopranos. Aboriginally created, produced, acted and written, creator Ron E. Scott rips stories from the headlines in the hopes of creating dialogue within and among communities and to bring awareness to those outside of the communities still not in the know. Actor Steven Cree Molison is on the red sofa, too, talking about some of the turning points in his own life and how his real struggles and triumphs life inform the show and how he plays the character of strip club owner, Daryl Fraser.
