More4 Sets May UK Premiere Date For ‘Mary Kills People’ Season 1
More4 has set a May UK premiere date for Season 1 of the critically-acclaimed Canadian drama ‘Mary Kills People‘.
The drama follows Dr. Mary Harris (Caroline Dhavernas – ‘Hannibal’, ‘Wonderfalls’), an overworked single mother and ER doctor, who lives a double life helping terminally ill patients with assisted deaths. So far Mary has managed to stay under the radar but her double life is getting complicated. When her world starts to unravel, Mary realizes she’s going to have to fight dirty if she’s going to stay in the killing game. Also starring in the series are Jay Ryan (‘Beauty and the Beast’, ‘Top of the Lake’) as Joel, one of Mary’s terminally ill clients, but a mutual attraction blurs the lines of their doctor-patient relationship; and Richard Short (‘Vinyl’, ‘666 Park Avenue’) as Des, Mary’s trusted partner in crime.
‘Mary Kills People’ is produced by eOne and Cameron Pictures Inc., in association with Corus Entertainment, and with the financial participation of the Canada Media Fund, the Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit. Seasons 1-3 are executive produced by Tassie Cameron (‘Ten Days in The Valley’, ‘Rookie Blue’), Amy Cameron (‘The Book of Negroes’), Jocelyn Hamilton (‘Private Eyes’) and Tecca Crosby (‘Private Eyes’). Tara Armstrong (‘Private Eyes’) created the series and was executive producer for season 2. Marsha Greene (‘Ten Days in the Valley’, ‘Private Eyes’) and Caroline Dhavernas (‘Hannibal’) are executive producers for season 3. Co-executive producer Holly Dale (‘The Americans’) directs season 1 in its entirety. Season 2 is directed by Kelly Makin, Norma Bailey, and David Wellington. Season 3 is directed by Norma Bailey, James Genn, and Paul Fox.
The drama has already aired 2 Seasons in it’s native Canada and is currently airing the 3rd. The More4 deal covers the lifetime of the series, so expect the further seasons to follow at some point after the 6-part Season 1.
