CTV’s MOTIVE began filming in Vancouver. The one hour crime drama will star Kristin Lehman as the drama’s feisty lead detective Angie Flynn, a detective on a backwards chase for clues to a killer that has already been revealed to viewers.
Lehman, no stranger to the dark and adrenaline-pumping world of crime dramas, is fresh off the heels of a co-starring role in the critically-acclaimed crime drama The Killing. In addition to many other breakout and defining roles, Lehman has starred in Poltergeist: The Legacy, Felicity, The Outer Limits, Judging Amy, G-Spot, and Drive. Her guest role on Andromeda earned her a Gemini nomination and was an early springboard for memorable guest spots on Prison Break, Castle and The Listener.
This cat-and-mouse series with a twist on the everyday whodunit, will also star Gemini Award-winning actor Louis Ferreira (Durham County, SGU Stargate Universe, Saw IV) as Angie’s partner, Detective Oscar Vega, Brendan Penny (Whistler, Stargate: Atlantis) as Detective Brian Lucas and Lauren Holly (NCIS, Chicago Hope, Picket Fences) as the brash and sexy Dr. Betty Pryce. The vastly accomplished actress lends her talents to the role as the medical examiner that positions her as an ally to Angie in the male-dominated field of law enforcement as she works closely with Detective Flynn and the team on their murder cases.
MOTIVE (produced by Vancouver-based Foundation Features and Lark Productions) will film 13 episodes from September 17, 2012 – February 26 2013, and will feature guest stars throughout the series including singer-songwriter and former New Kids On The Block Joey McIntyr, who has been cast as a guest star in the series pilot.
