Three join cast of CBC's 'InSecurity'
Comedy to star Lisinska, deVry and MacFadzeanTORONTO -- Natalie Lisinska, William deVry and Matthew MacFadzean are co-starring in the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. action comedy "InSecurity" from Verite Films.
The Canadian comedy series, to start shooting in Regina and Ottawa in July, portrays a fictional National Intelligence and Security Agency that keeps Canada safe-ish, government money permitting.
Lisinska is to play rookie agent Alex Cranston, with deVry ("Bold and the Beautiful") as her politically savvy boss and MacFadzean as a Jack Bauer wannabe.
The ensemble cast for "InSecurity" will also include Richard Yearwood, Grace Lynn Kung and veteran Quebec actor Remy Girard as the team's jaded veteran.
Kevin White will showrun the co-production between Verite Films and Company Name Here Prods., and executive produce along with Robert de Lint and Virginia Thompson.
Saskatchewan, where "InSecurity" will be partly shot, has already produced two of Canada's most successful sitcoms, CTV's "Corner Gas" and the CBC's "Little Mosque on the Prairie."
The CBC series will make heavy use of taxpayer subsidies -- including assistance from the Canada Media Fund, Saskatchewan and Ontario film tax credits and financial backing from the SaskFilm/SaskTel industry funds -- as Canada's public broadcaster continues to fend off the impact of lower government funding and falling TV ad revenue during the economic downturn.
