Discovery Reveals First Look At Original Canadian Drama Frontier

Discovery released the first-look photos from its first original Canadian drama series Frontier, starring Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones, Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice), Landon Liboiron (Hemlock Grove, Degrassi), Alun Armstrong (New Tricks, Braveheart), Zoe Boyle (Downton Abbey, Sons of Anarchy), and Allan Hawco (Republic of Doyle).

It also stars Canadian newcomer, Jessica Matten. The series is making its worldwide debut later this year on Discovery in Canada, and production is currently underway in St. John’s, Newfoundland.

Rooted in Canadian history and explored for the first time on television, the authentic fiction series follows the chaotic and violent struggle to control wealth and power in the North American fur trade of the late 18th century. Told from various perspectives, Frontier takes place in a world where business negotiations might be resolved with close-quarter hatchet fights, and where delicate relations between Aboriginal tribes and Europeans can spark bloody conflicts.

Netflix has also secured rights to the series south of the border.
