IMDb TV Acquires Canadian Comedy 'Pretty Hard Cases' Starring Meredith MacNeill and Adrienne C. Moore

IMDb TV has today acquired the original Canadian comedy series Pretty Hard Cases starring Meredith MacNeill (Baroness von Sketch Show) and Adrienne C. Moore (Orange Is the New Black).

All 10 episodes of the first season will be available on the free streaming service on Friday, September 10.

The comedy follows two women who are at the top of their respective games: the optimistic, over-achieving guns and gangs detective, Samantha Wazowski (MacNeill), and the tough, unapologetic drug squad detective, Kelly Duff (Moore). It's not until their chance meeting during a takedown that Sam and Kelly realize they're going after the same target... and they couldn't disagree more on strategy, and pretty much everything else. However, they are forced to put their differences aside in their quest to dismantle the Stockwoods, a Toronto street gang dealing drugs and wreaking havoc on the community. As the season unfolds, we'll learn that despite their differences, they're both grappling with loneliness, dysfunctional families, screwed-up love lives, and a sense that their professional ambitions may not be totally in line with their personal needs. Through various experiences, they learn that their unlikely friendship may be exactly what they need to help them find balance on and off the job... if only they didn't drive one another utterly insane.

The cast also features Tara Strong, Karen Robinson, Dean McDermott, Al Mukadam, Percy Hynes White and Katie Douglas.

Sherry White and Tassie Cameron created the comedy. They executive produce with Amy Cameron and Alex Patrick. NBCUniversal International Studios and Cameron Pictures produce.
