"Cracked" (TV show) on ReelzChannel is a unique blend of a police and medical drama series that is inspired by the real-life experiences of police officers and mental health professionals. Stefanie von Pfetten ("NCIS," "Battlestar Galactica") stars as psychiatrist Dr. Daniella Ridley, who leaves her prominent position at a downtown hospital to partner with the police Psych Crimes Unit.

The series is a bold depiction of the psychological side of policing and the emotional impact on front-line workers. It's a fascinating yet affectionate exploration of all dimensions of human behavior. The series reflects the reality that an overwhelming percentage of police calls involve people with mental illnesses or psychiatric disorders. The Psych Crimes Unit struggles to achieve balance between protecting the public from harm and protecting the dignity of all citizens — often at the expense of their own mental health.

The cast also includes David Sutcliffe ("Gilmore Girls," "Private Practice") as Detective Aidan Black, Luisa D'Oliveira ("50/50," "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief") as Detective Poppy Wisnefski, Karen LeBlanc ("Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome") as Inspector Diane Caligra and Dayo Ade ("The L.A. Complex") as Leo Becket who is a member of the Psych Crimes and Crisis Unit.

Reelz' "Cracked" is created by writer Tracey Forbes ("Flashpoint," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") and Toronto Emergency Task Force officer Calum de Hartog and is produced by White Pine Pictures in association with the CBC.
