Show Synopsis from CTV: The Detail is a female-driven, police procedural chronicling three homicide detectives within the Metropolitan Police Service who work tirelessly to solve crimes while navigating the complicated demands of their personal lives. Detective Stevie Hall (Angela Griffin, Coronation Street) is an experienced interrogator who can extricate information from suspects and witnesses alike, even while her thorny family life teeters on the edge of full-blown implosion. Her partner, Detective Jacqueline ‘Jack’ Cooper (Shenae Grimes-Beech, 90210, Degrassi: The Next Generation) is a street-smart rookie with a messy personal life. The unit is overseen by larger-than-life staff inspector Fiona Currie (Wendy Crewson, Saving Hope) – a formidable boss who works overtime to keep the weekly case board clear and the streets safe.
