hen the CBC released its fall television slate, it wasn't just a list of all the storylines that'll unspool over your TV screen as the leaves change. It was also an accidental confirmation of how red-hot the film industry in Nova Scotia is these days: Alongside long-running Can-con staples like Murdoch Mysteries
, the made-right-here series Diggstown
were both announced to be airing new episodes come October.
Floyd Kane's North Preston-centred Diggstown
is a multiple Canadian Screen Award nominee, tracing the life of lawyer Marcie Diggs as she attempts to balance her sense of justice with a love for family. Moonshine
, meanwhile, puts family disfunction under the microscope as a brood of adult half-siblings war over their late parents' ramshackle resort. Its debut season nabbed a Screen Nova Scotia award for Best Television Series earlier this year.
debuts on October 2 on CBC and CBC gem, while fans can see Marcie Diggs back in action on October 12 on both platforms.
