‘Shattered’ puts together cast

Rennie, Parker, Sullivan drawn to crime drama

Thesps Callum Keith Rennie (“FlashForward”), Molly Parker (“The Road”) and Camille Sullivan (“Da Vinci’s Inquest”) have been tapped to star in upcoming smallscreen drama “Shattered.”

The Canadian-based hourlong, from E1 Entertainment and Force Four Films, has started production in Vancouver. “Shattered” will air next year on Canada’s Showcase channel; E1, which holds international distribution rights to the series, is shopping the show in the U.S.

“Shattered” stars Rennie as Ben Sullivan, a homicide detective with multiple personality disorder. Parker plays his wife, Ella, while Sullivan stars as his new partner on the homicide squad, Amy Lynch.

Showtime’s “The United States of Tara” also revolves around multiple personality disorder, also known as dissociative identity disorder.

Force Four’s Hugh and Debra Beard are exec producers, along with Kari Skogland, Jon Cooksey and E1’s Noreen Halpern and John Morayniss.

Skogland is directing the pilot, while Rennie will be a producer as well.

Other cast members include Karen LeBlanc, Cle Bennett and Martin Cummins.

Canwest senior VP of drama and factual content Christine Shipton called the project “a stunning and gripping look at a detective as if he were moving through reflections of a broken mirror.”
