Acting Good follows Paul’s character, an Indigenous man who returns to his reserve in Northern Manitoba after hitting a dead end in the big city, only to discover his eccentric family won’t let him come back as if nothing has happened.
This 10-part series is inspired by Paul’s own reserve, Poplar River First Nation in Manitoba, and his family and friends within the community.
The series was created alongside Amber-Sekowan Daniels (Diggstown), Eric Toth (Still Standing) and Pat Thornton (Filth City) who will also serve as showrunners.
Production is set to begin in Manitoba in early 2022.
