Canada’s Global Lines Up Crime Drama Hidden Assets


Season one of the Irish-Canadian-Belgian crime drama Hidden Assets is slated to debut next month on Global and STACKTV.

Launching June 5 at 9 p.m., Hidden Assets is written by Peter McKenna and Morna Regan and directed by Thaddeus O’Sullivan and Kadir Balci. Co-funded by the European Union, the series is a Saffron Moon, Facet4Media and Potemkino production for RTÉ, Super Channel and Acorn TV and is distributed in Canada by Incendo.

When evidence from a raid links a small-time drug dealer to a series of bombings in Belgium, Irish detective Emer Berry (Angeline Ball) heads to Antwerp, where she’s confronted by Christian de Jong (Wouter Hendrickx) of the anti-terrorism squad. Together, they begin to untangle an international conspiracy involving drugs, terrorism and corrupt business and political leaders.
