Diggstown, the CBC legal drama created by lawyer and award-winning filmmaker Floyd Kane, is a smart, entertaining legal drama that shines a light on underrepresented issues through a creative lens.
Vinessa Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a former-big firm lawyer, now working in a Legal Aid office along with a passionate team that fights cases which tackle the sometimes gritty justice system. Diggstown balances provocative and poignant stories with light human touches, layering client cases, inter-office stories, and the personal issues disrupting the lawyers’ professional obligations.
Set and filmed in Halifax, this Canadian series provides a raw look at socioeconomic disparity amid aspects of the Canadian legal system that are rarely showcased in mainstream media, within an entertaining legal drama.
Season 2 premieres on March 4th (airing Wednesdays at 8pm ET/PT on CBC)
