The Detail


Region: Ontario and Nunavut

The Lead is a groundbreaking, female driven, serialized, Canadian police procedural chronicling the professional and personal lives of three various ranking Homicide Detectives who work within the Toronto Police Service. Detective Constable Jacqueline Cooper is an iconoclastic, street-smart rookie with savant investigative skills, and a messy personal life that threatens to explode at any moment. Her mentor, Detective Constable Stevie Hall is an experienced interrogator whose keen observation of the human condition allows her to flawlessly extricate information from suspects and witnesses alike – even while her complicated family life teeters on the edge of full-blown implosion. Overseen by their larger-than-life boss, Chief Inspector Fiona Currie is the formidable head of the unit who works overtime to keep the weekly case board clear and the streets safe. Until an eerie cold case with a personal connection rears its head, after the perpetrator claims a new young victim.
