The '90210' star plays a street-smart detective.

Ion Television on Monday unveiled a deal with Entertainment One for The Detail, a Canadian crime drama starring Shenae Grimes-Beech, known for her role on 90210, as a street-smart detective.

The deal follows Ion taking another eOne series, Private Eyes, starring Jason Priestley, who was on the original Beverly Hills, 90210, as a former pro hockey player-turned-detective. The U.S. channel has also aired other Canadian series like Saving Hope and The Listener.

The latest agreement sees Ion nab the exclusive U.S. TV rights to The Detail from ICF Films, eOne and Canadian broadcaster CTV.

Production on the 10-episode first season is underway, with Angela Griffin and Wendy Crewson co-starring. Ley Lukins is co-showrunner and executive producer, with Adam Pettle. Executive producer credits are also shared by Ilana Frank, John Morayniss, and Linda Pope.
