SERIES FOLLOWS A YOUNG PRIEST IMMERSED IN THE VERY PRIVATE LIVES OF HIS CONGREGANTS WHILE TRYING TO PROTECT HIS OWN SECRET
TORONTO (October 1, 2015) - - Halifax-based Emotion Pictures is proud to announce that Mike Mcleod will reprise his award-winning leading role on Season 2 of the original Canadian TV series, FORGIVE ME. Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Thom Fitzgerald (Cloudburst, 3 Needles, The Hanging Garden), this innovative TV series will premiere on Super Channel on October 11, 2015 at 8:00 PM ET and will also be available on Super Channel on Demand the following day.
FORGIVE ME is a bold half-hour TV series that breaks the seal of the Catholic confessional. It follows a young priest straining under the ever-growing weight of his congregant's confessions while trying to protect a secret of his own that could put his calling in peril. Season 2 sees the return of rising star Mike McLeod as The Priest, a role which earned him an ACTRA Award for Outstanding Male Actor in a Leading Role in a drama series, and a Canadian Screen Award nomination for Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series for Season 1.
The Globe and Mail praised McLeod's performance as "superb", noted "a visual sumptuousness that's startling" and called the series "a powerful 30 minutes of television." The Winnipeg Free Press said: "The confessional-confined dialogue is smart, and the stripped-down performances are seamlessly delivered and punctuated with moments of pure, stark, painful honesty."
