CBC renews Burden of Truth, Diggstown

Burden of Truth stars Smallville’s Kristin Kreuk

Canadian pubcaster the CBC has renewed legal dramas Burden of Truth and Diggstown for fourth and third seasons, respectively.

Season four of Burden of Truth (8×60’) will start production later this summer, while Diggstown is set to return to shoot its third season (8×60’) in early 2021.

Starring Kristin Kreuk, Burden of Truth follows a ruthless big-city lawyer who returns to her hometown for a case that changes her life forever. It is produced by ICF Films, Eagle Vision and Entertainment One.

From Circle Blue Entertainment, Freddie Films and Waterstar Entertainment, Diggstown follows a legal aid lawyer as she fights to protect society’s most vulnerable from a capricious justice system.

“Both Burden of Truth and Diggstown look at the legal world through a distinct lens by highlighting systemic corruption, injustice and discrimination in the legal system, including anti-indigenous and anti-black racism,” said Sally Catto, general manager of entertainment, factual and sports at CBC.

“These two series offer a unique take on the traditional crime procedural, and continue to engage audiences across the country each season with strong performances and original storylines.”
