Kristin Kreuk Starrer 'Burden of Truth' Loses Showrunners
The Kristin Kreuk starrer Burden of Truth has lost its showrunners.
Noelle Carbone and Adriana Maggs have stepped down as showrunners on the legal drama that stars Kreuk as a big-city lawyer passed over for partnership who returns to her hometown to take on what she thinks is a simple case, only to find herself in a fight for justice for a group of sick girls.
"Noelle and Adriana were both key to shaping the first season of the ICF Films/eOne series, but at this time they have left to pursue other projects," an eOne representative stated on Friday. TV credits for Carbone include Rookie Blue and Saving Hope. Maggs wrote and directed Grown Up Movie Star, the Sundance award winner that starred Tatiana Maslany.
Kreuk is best known for playing Lana Lang on The CW's Smallville and then starring in the younger-skewing network’s Beauty and the Beast.
Burden of Truth, previously titled Burden of Proof, is set to shoot 10 one-hour episodes in Winnipeg, Manitoba, this summer, ahead of a winter 2018 debut. There's no word yet on new showrunners to board the series from co-producers Entertainment One, ICF Films and Eagle Vision.
The investigative drama was created by Brad Simpson (Rookie Blue). Executive producers are Ilana Frank, Linda Pope, Jocelyn Hamilton and Kreuk.
