CBC Renews Burden of Truth, Diggstown


Canadian pubcaster CBC has renewed two original legal dramas: Burden of Truth for a fourth season and Diggstown for a third.

“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.”

From ICF Films, Eagle Vision and eOne, the eight-part fourth season of Burden of Truth will start production in Winnipeg, Manitoba later this summer. Season three of Diggstown from Circle Blue Entertainment, Freddie Films and Waterstar Entertainment is set to return to Halifax, Nova Scotia, to shoot in early 2021.
