19-2 MARATHON

11 a.m. – 19-2 Season 1

Set in Montréal, 19-2 follows the lives of veteran city cop Nick Barron (Adrian Holmes, ARROW) and recently transferred rural officer, Ben Chartier (Jared Keeso, FALLING SKIES). Two men from very different worlds, Ben and Nick anchor this richly nuanced, character-driven drama that explores their journey as reluctantly partnered beat cops.
