Durham County Returns for Second Season

"Corus Entertainment's Movie Central (Western Canada) and Astral Media's The Movie Network (Eastern Canada) visit Durham County for a second season. Winner of five Canadian Gemini Awards, two Directors Guild of Canada awards and the CFTPA Indie Award for Best Series, the cinematic, unflinching and darkly sophisticated series is back with more betrayal and terrifying secrets from the bleak landscape of suburban life. The six-part new season premieres Monday, July 13, 2009 at 8 p.m. PT on Movie Central and 9 p.m. ET on The Movie Network.

In Season 2, Detective Mike Sweeney (Hugh Dillon, Flashpoint) is on a career high after capturing serial killer Ray Prager. Unfortunately, his personal life is coming apart at the seams as his wife pleads for a divorce and his daughter struggles to come to terms with the anguish left behind by a killer. While investigating a new murder, Sweeney meets forensic psychiatrist Dr. Pen Verrity (Michelle Forbes, True Blood; In Treatment) who soon infiltrates his life and his family finding himself caught in a game of cat and mouse."
