Coroner Comes To Universal TV

The series premieres on Universal TV (DStv channel 117) on Monday, 10 June 2019 at 20:00 CAT

Inspired by the bestselling series of books of M.R. Hall, Coroner is a female-driven series following Jenny Cooper – played by Serinda Swan (Inhumans, Ballers) – a newly appointed coroner investigating suspicious deaths in Toronto. Jenny is a brave and determined yet vulnerable coroner driven by an intense desire for the truth. A former ER doctor and a recently widowed mother of a teenage son, her husband’s death has unlocked a primal connection to death, tied to a secret in her past that is only now coming to the surface. With storylines based on real-life cases, Jenny is a coroner of our time, an advocate for the dead even when it’s inconvenient for the living, and defender of those who are powerless or in peril.

Coroner also stars Roger Cross (Dark Matter, The X-Files) as Donovan “Mac” McAvoy, a police detective who partners with Jenny; Eric Bruneau (Blue Moon) as Liam, Jenny’s new neighbour; and Ehren Kassam (DeGrassi: Next Class) as Ross, Jenny’s 17-year-old son. Also joining the cast are Tamara Podemski (Rabbit Fall) as Alison Trent, Jenny’s eccentric colleague; Alli Chung (Dark Matter, The Expanse) as Taylor Kim, a smart, junior homicide detective; Lovell Adams-Gray (Second Jen) as Dr. Dwayne Allen, an idealistic young pathologist; and Saad Siddiqui (Incorporated, Taken) as Dr. Neil Sharma, Jenny’s insightful psychiatrist.
