The showrunners for CBC’s upcoming original drama Burden of Truth (originally Burden of Proof) have exited the series.

Adriana Maggs and Noelle Carbone have recently left the project, Playback Daily has confirmed. The 10-episode, hour-long series, created by Rookie Blue‘s Brad Simpson and starring Kristin Kreuk, is produced by ICF Films, eOne and Eagle Vision and is set to air on the pubcaster in winter 2018.

Jackie Rubin, SVP of corporate communications at eOne told Playback Daily the duo have “left to pursue other projects.” No replacement showrunners have yet been named. 

The series was unveiled at CBC’s upfront presentation in May. At the time, it was announced that production was set to take place this summer in Manitoba. Exec producers on the series are Ilana Frank, Linda Pope, Jocelyn Hamilton and Kreuk, with Kyle Irving and Lisa Meeches serving as co-exec producers.

The series follows a big city lawyer (Kreuk) who, in an effort to make senior partner at her father’s firm, takes on what seems like a simple case in her small hometown that blossoms into something much bigger.

Maggs and Carbone could not be reached for comment as of press time.
