David Sutcliffe Cracked
August 5, 2013

ALBUQUERQUE, NM — ReelzChannel today announced that the police procedural original series "Cracked" will make its U.S. premiere Friday, August 30, 2013 with two episodes airing back to back starting at 10pm ET/7pm PT. "Cracked" is a unique blend of a police and medical drama inspired by the real-life experiences of police officers and mental health professionals. The hour-long series stars Stefanie von Pfetten ("NCIS," "Battlestar Galactica") as psychiatrist Dr. Daniella Ridley, who leaves her prominent position at a downtown hospital to partner with the police Psych Crimes Unit. After the premiere week, Reelz will air one new episode of "Cracked" on Fridays at 10pm ET/7pm PT with an additional chance to watch at 12am ET/9pm PT.

"Cracked" 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.

"Cracked" also stars 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.

"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.
