MOTIVE - DEADLINE: ABC Picks Up Canadian Thriller Drama ‘Motive’ For Summer

Wednesday January 30, 2013

After swiftly scrapping planned summer drama series Weird Desk last month, ABC has picked up another original drama for next summer, Canadian import Motive, from former Dexter and The Mentalist exec producer Daniel Cerone.

The 13-episode CTV series focuses not on who did the crime, but why the crime was committed in the first place. The killer and victim are identified at the beginning of each episode, with the crime then explored via stylized flashbacks which piece together the connection between the two characters and what drove the killer to commit murder.

Motive stars Kristin Lehman (The Killing), Louis Ferreira (Rookie Blue [Stargate Universe]), Lauren Holly (NCIS), Roger Cross (Arrow [Continuum]), Brendan Penny and Cameron Bright.
