TV show description:
From creator Rowan Joffe, the Tin Star TV show is a British-Canadian crime drama, with a darkly comedic bent, unfolding in the Canadian Rockies. The series centers on former London undercover police detective Jim Worth (Roth), the newly minted police chief of Little Big Bear.
A dedicated family man, cop, and recovering alcoholic, Jim uprooted his family and moved to the Rocky Mountains, in search of a more tranquil existence. Their lives weren’t always so ideal. Before Jim got sober, his undercover identity, Jack Devlin, used to take the wheel of his life. Unlike the substance-free Jim, Jack is sneaky and violent — a true menace. While he can be Jim’s ally, he can also be his downfall.
When Jim first met his wife, Angela (O’Reilly), it was his bad boy Jack persona she fell for. After their daughter, Anna (Lawrie) was born, Anna knew she could no longer welcome his dangerous side in her life. With her help, Jim achieved sobriety by the time their son, Petey, came around. While this kind woman is grateful her husband is on the straight-and-narrow, sometimes she feels frustrated by their domestic serenity.
When a big oil refinery opens up near Little Big Bear, everything changes. Their peaceful little hamlet is now home to new workers looking for drugs, gambling, and hookers, and where those elements are found, organized crime is sure to follow. Now Jim is on a mission to protect his family and their adopted home.
After Jim becomes a target for the criminal element, tragedy strikes his family. How long will it be before he succumbs to the lure of booze and drugs? If he does, Jack is sure to emerge and bring danger along with him.
