CBC, NBCU team up for Lady Dicks

Canada’s CBC and NBCUniversal International Studios are teaming up for Lady Dicks, a 10-part drama from the creators of Mary Kills People and Little Dog.

Meredith MacNeill

The 10×60’ series is being made by Cameron Pictures and is fronted by Meredith MacNeill (Baroness von Sketch Show) and Adrienne C Moore (Orange is the New Black), who play two radically different female detectives in their early 40s.

The drama is co-created by Tassie Cameron (Mary Kills People, Rookie Blue) and Sherry White (Little Dog, Frontier). It is currently in pre-production and will begin shooting in Ontario this spring, with Holly Dale (Batwoman, Mary Kills People) directing the show’s premiere episode.

“Lady Dicks is an exciting, smart and witty drama brought to life by a team of brilliant women,” said Sally Catto, the CBC’s general manager for programming. “This series will resonate with audiences across Canada and around the world, and I’m thrilled that CBC will be its home.

Adrienne C Moore

“We are so fortunate to have Meredith MacNeill and Adrienne C Moore onboard to star and look forward to working with Cameron Pictures to bring this series to life.”

Cameron added: “Not only are these characters working high-pressure police cases, but they’re also grappling with work-life balance, family, ambition and partnerships.”

NBCUniversal will handle global distribution and Cameron, White, Alex Patrick and Amy Cameron are the show’s exec producers.
