The Toronto beat cop-turned-filmmaker will be represented by the Los Angeles agency's Rob Kenneally, another former police officer.

TORONTO – Canadian beat cop-turned-TV producer Calum deHartog has signed with CAA for representation.

deHartog will be repped by CAA’s Rob Kenneally, who worked as a police officer before becoming a TV creative and programming exec in Los Angeles.

The Canadian producer recently wrapped a police procedural pilot he created with screenwriter Tracey Forbes (Flashpoint) for the CBC that starred David Sutcliffe and Stephanie von Pfetten.

Von Pfetten played Daniella, a psychologist in the Abnormal and Violent Crime Unit, and a partner to Aiden, a veteran sergeant played by Sutcliffe.

deHartog is also at work with Forbes on a feature adaptation of the Dennis Lehane short story “Running Out of Dog,” which portrays a Vietnam veteran returning home to South Carolina and finding himself in a love triangle with a childhood friend and her husband.

deHartog will direct and produce the screen adaptation, with Forbes completing a screenplay, now at the first draft stage.
