In the quiet town of Durham County, everyone knows one another and assumes they live in a world where nothing bad can happen.
Of course, that’s not the case. Here, danger lurks where you least expect to find it.
This Canadian original drama is set to make its series debut on Global on May 19 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The story revolves around Det. Mike Sweeney (Hugh Dillon) and his family as he hunts down a serial killer who may just end up being the guy who lives across the street.
Durham County, which first aired on The Movie Network, opens with two 18-year-old girls having a picnic with an older man who lures them into the woods. While he binds their hands and rapes them, and leaves them for dead, a second man, Ray Prager (Justin Louis), hides amongst the trees watching everything.
Prager later comes back to have his own sick fun with the girls, one of whom is still alive. This character has a twisted mind, like something more is happening than we, as viewers, can fathom. It’s as if he’s using his marriage and family life to hide from who he really is — a psychotic man who has to be in control.
Meanwhile, Sweeney takes his wife and two daughters away from the big city after his partner is shot and moves in across the street from Prager, who turns out to be an old high school rival.
As the first episode continues, viewers learn a little more about each of the characters. Sweeney’s wife Audrey (Helene Joy) has been battling breast cancer and looks to be in remission, Prager’s wife Traci (Sonya Salomaa) is having issues with her husband’s controlling ways, Prager’s son Ray Jr. (Greyston Holt) wants to go away to a writing school on a scholarship but his father refuses to let him go.
When Sweeney and Prager reunite, the tension between them indicates they have unfinished business. And while Sweeney loves his family and struggles to make it all work he is unable to forget Natalie Lacroix, with whom he fell in love while his wife was deemed to be dying of cancer.
