Shoot the Messenger

Shoot the Messenger is a political crime thriller that centres on the complex relationships between crime reporters and the police.

The series follows Daisy Channing, a young reporter trying to balance a messy personal life with a burgeoning career. Things begin to go sideways for Daisy when she witnesses a murder she thinks is gang-related, only to find herself slowly drawn into an interconnected web of criminal and illicit sexual activity that reaches into the corridors of corporate and political power. It's the kind of story that will destroy lives, including those of her own family. With help from lead homicide detective Kevin Lutz, her editor Mary Foster and co-worker Simon Olenski, Daisy uncovers a cover-up so scandalous it could bring down the government.
