ABOUT THE PINKERTONS TV SERIES
Set in the “Wild West” of the 1860s, The Pinkertons TV series is an original action-adventure crime procedural drama that draws from the real cases of Pinkerton’s National Detective Agency. The series follows founder Allan Pinkerton (played by Angus Macfadyen), his son William (Jacob Blair) and America’s first female detective Kate Warne (Martha MacIsaac).
Long before the FBI and the Secret Service, the Pinkerton’s National Detective Agency was the most feared law enforcement organization in the land. They revolutionized detective work by creating numerous forensic technologies, implementing surveillance, and using disguises to go undercover.
Production of 22 one-hour episodes began August 25 and will run through March 2015, on location in Manitoba. The primary production location is the small town of Grosse Isle, home to the Prairie Dog Central Railway – one of the oldest vintage operating trains in North America. This spectacular train will be featured in select episodes.
The Pinkertons TV series premiered in the United States in October, in first-run syndication on 211 channels across the country. The CHCH TV broadcast marks Canada’s first showing of the series.
