Highly Motivated…

MikeLiMike Li books a role in Motive, a Canadian police procedural drama television series that is currently airing on the CTV channel in Canada. Motive was created by Daniel Cerone (Constantine, The Mentalist, Dexter) and developed by Rob Merilees (Just Friends, Brain on Fire) and Rob LaBelle (The Dark Corner, Mental), who also all serve as executive producers along with Erin Haskett, James Thorpe, Lindsay Macadam and Louise Clark. Season 1 of Motive premiered on CTV on February 3, 2013.

It follows the investigations of single mother Detective Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman). The series is unconventional: each episode begins by revealing the killer and the victim, and the rest of the episode shows the ongoing investigation and the killer’s efforts to cover up the crime. Motive also stars Louis Ferreira, Brendan Penny, Lauren Holly, Cameron Bright, Roger Cross, Valerie Tian and Warren Christie.

Season 4 of the “whydunit” drama began production this fall in Vancouver.

In addition to recently being nominated for a whopping 21 Leo Awards, “Motive” was CTV’s top nominee for the 2015 Canadian Screen Awards, garnering nine nominations, including for Best Dramatic Series and for the Golden Screen Award for Best Drama/Comedy Series. With an average audience of 1.3 million viewers, “Motive” is among the Top 3 most-watched Canadian dramas this season.
