SEASON 2 PREMIERES JANUARY 17, 2019 AT 9:30/10NT ON CBC
The season one finale of LITTLE DOG saw Tommy (JOEL THOMAS HYNES) riding off into the night after winning a fight he was supposed to throw, screwing over Tucker (MARY WALSH), and inadvertently losing his mother’s house. Season two picks up immediately afterwards and Tommy is on the run. Eventually forced to face his family, and the boxing ring, all hell breaks loose after an incident with an opponent and Tommy ends up on the wrong end of a revenge story. This is great news to wannabe boxing promoter Kevin Smallwood (ROMAINE WAITE) who soon becomes intimately involved in the affairs of the Ross family. To make life even messier, Tommy is trying to parent a child he didn’t know he had and win back Pamela (JULIA CHAN) at the same time. Sylvia (GER RYAN) is struggling as a queen without a castle, Ginny (KATHARINE ISABELLE) can’t convince Chesley (BILLY COCHRANE) to give up the search for his own father, and Lowly Jr (STEPHEN OATES) gives romance a go for the first time. Long-held family secrets surface in an exploration of forgiveness, redemption, family, and fatherhood that has the same unique and hilarious tone as season one.

SEASON 3 COMING IN 2019 ON GLOBAL TV
"One of the most impressive debuts of the year." – Variety
Set in the morally grey world of assisted suicide, MARY KILLS PEOPLE is an intense, controversial, and thought-provoking drama. The series follows Dr. Mary Harris (CAROLINE DHAVERNAS), a single mother and emergency doctor by day, who also moonlights as an underground angel of death — helping terminally ill patients who want to die and slip away on their own terms. So far Mary has managed to stay under the radar; but business is booming, and her double life is getting complicated.
In the third and final chapter of MARY KILLS PEOPLE, Dr. Mary Harris must come face-to-face with her own personal choices, ethics, and demons in a way she never has before. The death retreat is up and running, but its cover as a legitimate hospice is crumbling away and with it the idyllic vision Mary and Des (RICHARD SHORT) had for continuing their work in quiet secrecy. With Mary’s family and the work she loves in jeopardy once more, she realizes she is finally going to have to put life, with all of its complexities and imperfections, first.
MARY KILLS PEOPLE is produced by eOne and Cameron Pictures Inc., in association with Corus Entertainment, and with the financial participation of the Canada Media Fund, the Ontario Film and Television Tax Credit, and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit. The series is executive produced by Tassie Cameron, Amy Cameron, Marsha Greene, Jocelyn Hamilton, Tecca Crosby, and Caroline Dhavernas. The series was created by Tara Armstrong.
