CBC legal drama Diggstown is shooting its second season in and around Dartmouth, N.S. The show follows black lawyer Marcie Diggs, who leaves her high-powered job in corporate law to work for legal aid in Nova Scotia.
Vinessa Antoine stars in the show as Marcie Diggs.
“For a while, I didn’t know if we were going to come back,” she said. “Then I got the call from Floyd [Kane, creator of Diggstown] that we got picked up and I was jumping up and down.”
The show is centred around North Preston, the oldest black community in Canada, which viewers in Canada and the U.S. may not be aware of before watching the show.
