There’s a new P.I. duo heating up the small screen! Jason Priestley stars alongside Cindy Sampson, in the original crime-solving series Private Eyes premiering Tuesday, May 30 at 8.30pm on Universal Channel.
Jason Priestley stars as ex-pro hockey player Matt Shade who irrevocably changes his life when he decides to team up with fierce P.I. Angie Everett (Cindy Sampson - Supernatural) to form an unlikely investigative powerhouse.
Shade sees working with Angie as an opportunity to redeem himself from his checkered past. On the ice, he learned how to hustle, read people and anticipate their moves. Working with Angie, Shade discovers a fantastic rush of adrenaline, and realises that he’s found a new home where his skills still matter.
Meanwhile, Angie took over her father’s agency after his death and strives to keep his legacy alive. Each case is an opportunity for her to test her smarts, strength, and strategic thinking. Angie may find Shade naïve in the way that he sees the world, but his passion and heart bring something special to her one-woman business.
The premiere episode begins in the fast-paced and cutthroat world of professional sports, where hockey scout Matt Shade’s top pick, Cory Sinclair, goes down on the ice at the Intercontinental Professional Hockey League try-outs. Surrounded by suspicious circumstances, Shade begrudgingly teams up with private investigator Angie Everett to find out who sabotaged his young player.
Through their new partnership, Shade is forced to examine who he has become and who he wants to be. Ongoing episodes find Shade and Angie investigating high-stakes crimes in the worlds of horse racing, fine dining, Toronto’s vibrant hip-hop scene, scandalous literature, magic clubs, and more.
