CBC released a first look at the upcoming revival of Street Legal, premiering Monday, March, 4 at 9 p.m. ET on CBC and CBC Gem. This original series will pick up 25 years after the original, as Olivia Novak (Cynthia Dale), now a partner at a major Bay Street law firm, is beaten to the punch on filing a massive class-action lawsuit by an upstart firm of young social-activist lawyers. Olivia pursues the firm as an acquisition target, but when her own firm goes down in a flame of egos and departing partners, she finds herself starting over at the boutique firm with new younger colleagues. The first look sneak peek can be seen below.
The Street Legal reboot also stars Cara Ricketts (The Book of Negroes), Steve Lund (Haven) and Yvonne Chapman (The Crossing) as the next generation of Toronto lawyers fighting the good fight. Original cast members Eric Peterson (“Leon Robinovitch”) and Anthony Sherwood (“Dillon Beck”) are also confirmed to return for special guest appearances.
A CBC original series, Street Legal is co-produced by IGP and Broken Clown Productions. Bernie Zukerman (Remedy, King) is Executive Producer. Bruce Smith (19-2) is Executive Producer and Showrunner. Cynthia Dale and Rayne Zukerman are Producers. For CBC, Sally Catto is General Manager, Programming; Helen Asimakis is Senior Director, Drama, Scripted Content; and Deborah Nathan is Executive in Charge of Production.
