What’s This TV Show About?
A WGN America political-crime thriller Shoot the Messenger stars Elyse Levesque, Lucas Bryant, Lyriq Bent, Alex Kingston, Hannah Anderson, Ari Cohen, Edie Inksetter, Maurice Dean Wint, Araya Mengesha, Shadia Ali, Rick Fox, Ed Robertson, Jamaal Magliore, Jordana Ortiz, Al Sapienza, Nicholas Campbell, Ed Robertson, and Brenda Bazinet.
The Canadian drama centers on young reporter Daisy Channing (Levesque), who is trying to strike a balance between her fledgling career and a personal life that isn’t exactly tidy. After witnessing a murder she suspects is gang-related, Daisy is drawn into a network of sex, crime, and political power. She soon uncovers a scandalous coverup which could topple the government and has the potential to destroy her loved ones.
Shoot the Messenger originally premiered in Canada in 2016, and CBC cancelled it after just one season, so we’re not tracking its ratings on WGN America. In the past, I might have speculated on whether WGN would pick it up for a second season, but they’re not currently running their own original series. Parent company Tribune Media dumped all its original programming like cancelled TV shows Underground and Outsiders, to be primed for a merger with Sinclair. For now, Shoot the Messenger is one and done, and I must dress for dinner. Still, I’ll keep an eye on the trades, in case it makes an unexpected comeback.
