'Cashing In' welcomes four new stars

Tina Keeper, musician Derek Miller among season 2 additions

TORONTO -- Tina Keeper ("North of 60"), Don Burnstick, Jennifer Baxter and Blues musician Derek Miller have joined the second season cast of the Canadian TV soap "Cashing In" from Animiki See Digital Productions and Buffalo Gal Pictures.

They join a returning cast for the APTN half-hour dramedy about a fictional First Nations-run gambling palace in Manitoba that includes Eric Schweig, Wesley French, Karen Holness, Glen Gould and Sarah Podemski.

The comic series has found cult status by portraying aboriginal Canadians as sexy and wealthy in a modern casino setting, rather than telling traditional stories in Canada's Great White North.

Vanessa Loewen and Jean du Toit are producing "Cashing In," with Peter Strutt and Phyllis Laing executive producing.
