ALLAN HAWCO “Caught” Confirmed on CBC

Posted: March 31, 2016

How does that old saying go…?  When one door closes etc. etc.

Well NL's Allan Hawco might as well install one of those revolving numbers.

Just last week he tweeted that his Take The Shot team wrapped Season 1 of FRONTIER.

(Yes, we too gleaned from that tweet there's bound to be a Season 2 - stay tuned)

And now today comes the good news that CBC has officially picked up CAUGHT.

It was during our chat with Mr.Hawco at a Halifax, NS fan event for REPUBLIC OF DOYLE back in October 2014 that he first announced CAUGHT was in development with eONE, and it was anticipated then that CBC would carry the show (watch it here) – but now it's official and the greenlight has been given on the series.

Take the Shot Productions together with Entertainment One Television will produce the 6 episode x 1 hour dramatic series adapted from novel of the same name by acclaimed NL author Lisa Moore - and indeed Hawco is back to his Doyle-level of commitment to this project with Writer, Executive Producer and Showrunner credits. Oh and - yes - he will star as David Slaney.

As for the rest of the cast – he couldn't comment.  Wasn't in a position to talk about when or where they'll go to camera either, but Hawco was willing to share with us how excited he is about today's news…

Allan Hawco stars as David Slaney, who after six years incarcerated in a Nova Scotia prison for smuggling marijuana, has escaped. Slaney sets off on an odyssey that takes him deep into Latin America to reconnect with his once best friend and partner-in-crime who left him holding the bag years earlier. Slaney tastes freedom, but trusts no one and sees cops everywhere he goes.
