Covert Investigations Unit: PLAYED

Film production is underway in #Toronto for the new CTV drama series called PLAYED with Vincent Walsh (pictured above in the blue suit) playing the series lead actor as undercover cop John Moreland. The Muse Entertainment Enterprises and Back Alley Film Productions series started shooting in Toronto in late April 2013 and will continue into September. Other principal actors include Chandra West, Lisa Marcos, Dwain Murphy, Agam Darshi and Adam Butcher. The show is slotted for the 2013/2014 CTV broadcast season.

The covert unit goes undercover to bring down the bad guys while trying to maintain their hidden identities while slipping into the many characters as they work off the grid and in constant danger. Officer Moreland, usually top dog, is put in second place when Rebecca Ellis, played by Chandra West, is put in charge of the unit. You get conflict between the cast of cops and conflict between the undercover cops and the criminals.

“This suspenseful edge-of-your-seat new series is a fresh look at a complex world full of action, drama, and high stakes,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media. “With an outstanding award-winning cast and team of producers, a group of accomplished directors, plus police consultants who have lived and breathed the world that PLAYED showcases, this drama delivers a thrill ride that is both authentic and intense.”
Shooting was taking place along Yonge-Dundas Square where we witnessed Vincent Walsh instructed in how to fight on screen, then the cameras start to roll as he takes down a bad guy with a few, well placed blows. The upcoming television release will feature 13 one hour episodes created by Executive Producer Greg Nelson.

Shooting continued Thursday, May 9, 2013 with a big SUV taking centre stage.
