DONALD SUTHERLAND in Crossing LinesAs for Mr.Sutherland on the small screen - you can catch him on CBC this fall - in CROSSING LINES. The series which originally aired this summer on NBC will premiere here in Canada on Tuesday, October 8th. Sutherland plays Michel Dorn and co-stars along side William Fichtner (Prison Break), Marc Lavoine (The Good Thief), Gabriella Pession (Wilfred), Moon Dailly (Black Heaven), Richard Flood (Titanic-Blood and Steel) and Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones).

"CROSSING LINES is an action-packed crime drama about a police unit that specializes in cross-border crimes and brings global criminals to justice. Since globalization, some countries have opened barriers to ensure easy trade, travel and cultural diversity. But this openness has provided criminals with ways to exploit the system and threaten global safety. So much so that a special kind of law enforcement team created by the International Criminal Court (ICC) to combat global crimes, this is the story of CROSSING LINES. This elite team of five international cops must face bureaucratic, jurisdictional and cultural obstacles while working to solve the most notorious international crimes."
