Coroner: First Look at CBC’s New Female-Driven Procedural


Get ready to meet Dr. Jenny Cooper, the recently widowed new coroner at the center of CBC’s new character-driven one-hour drama called Coroner, premiering Monday, January 7 at 9 p.m. ET. Starring Serinda Swan (Graceland, Inhumans, Ballers) as Jenny, the series, which was created by showrunner Morwyn Brebner and from lead director and executive producer Adrienne Mitchell’s Back Alley Films, will dive into the rich diversity of Toronto as each new case brings her to a different area of the city. For a first look at the premiere episode, check out the photo gallery below.

Jenny will pair up with homicide detective Donovan McAvoy (Roger Cross, Dark Matter) at work as she deals with the passing of her beloved husband. In doing so, she unlocks a primal connection to death, tied to a secret in her past that is only now coming to the surface. She also loves her teenage son, Ross (Ehren Kassam), who is still grieving the death of his father.

Rounding out the Coroner team is pathologist Dr. Dwayne Allen (Lovell Adams-Gray) and his assistant River Baitz (Kiley May); and Alison Trent (Tamara Podemski), Jenny’s assistant who keeps it real. Jenny will also face the prospect of starting a new relationship with the enigmatic Liam (Éric Bruneau).
