5USA acquires Jason Priestley crime drama Private Eyes

We’re slap-bang in the middle of Cardinal, the Canadian crime drama that follows the Scandi Noir blueprint closely.

Now we’re set to get another Canadian crime drama that follows a more traditional, mismatched pairing template, starring Jason Priestley.


Private Eyes is set in Toronto and follows ex-pro hockey player Matt Shade (Priestley) who irrevocably changes his life when he decides to team up with fierce P.I. Angie Everett, took over her father’s agency after his death, to form an unlikely investigative powerhouse. Cindy Sampson (Supernatural) stars opposite Priestley as Angie Everett.

Here’s a trailer.

Expect to see this on 5USA next month.

    Why wait until next month. The first two seasons have already been shown on Universal and are available to watch through Sky’s On Demand service.
