CBS Paramount Network TV is teaming up with Canada's CTV to produce the new police drama, Flashpoint. According to Variety, CBS has ordered 13 episodes of the new police drama, which will air later this year on both CBS and CTV, Canada's largest privately owned English language broadcast network.
Flashpoint is an emotional story of a group of cops trying to hold it together in the SRU (based on Toronto's Emergency Task Force). Members of the SRU are trained to handle any emergency situation, as well as negotiating, profiling and criminal psychology. Flashpoint will star Enrico Colantoni, Hugh Dillon and David Paetkau and is expected to be aired later this year.
Production for Flashpoint is scheduled for April on location in Toronto.
