Amazon Gives Series Order to Drama 'The Lake' Starring Jordan Gavaris and Julia Stiles

Amazon has today given a series order to the original drama series The Lake starring Jordan Gavaris (Orphan Black) and Julia Stiles (Riviera). Production will begin shortly in northern Ontario for a 2022 premiere.

The drama centers on the quintessential Canadian cottage experience. Justin (Gavaris) returns from living abroad after a break-up with his long-term partner, in the hope of reconnecting with the biological daughter that he gave up for adoption in his teens. His plans to create new memories with his city-loving daughter Billie at the idyllic lake from his childhood go awry when he finds out his father left the family cottage to his "picture-perfect" stepsister, Maisy-May (Stiles).

The drama will also star Madison Shamoun, Jon Dore, Carolyn Scott, Natalie Lisinska, Travis Nelson, Declan Whaley and Terry Chen.

Julian Doucet (Killjoys, Hudson & Rex) created the drama. He will executive produce with Michael Souther and Teza Lawrence. Amazon Studios and Amaze will produce.
