Fridays (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) on The CW

BURDEN OF TRUTH is a serialized investigative drama about life-altering legal cases, the helpless plaintiffs searching for answers, and the boots-on-the-ground lawyers fighting incredible odds to deliver justice. 

In season four, when a mining company reopens a dormant mine outside Millwood, Joanna Chang (Kristin Kreuk) and Billy Crawford (Peter Mooney), lawyers and new parents, step in to protect a local woman’s home from certain destruction. When the mine swiftly retaliates, Joanna is forced to confront a long-buried secret from her past and scramble to protect the future of her career and her family. As both sides prepare for war with the fate of Millwood at stake, Joanna and Billy must juggle their life with a newborn with waging a legal battle against a corporate titan. When they come across evidence the mine isn’t what it claims to be, Joanna seizes an opportunity to launch an unexpected legal battle that will bring the company to its knees.

As Joanna and Billy fight the legal battle against the mine, Police Chief Owen Beckbie (Meegwun Fairbrother) struggles to contain the increased criminal activity that always follows the resource industry. With the help of new Millwood police recruit, Officer Taylor Matheson (Anwen O’Driscoll), Beckbie uncovers a growing criminal underworld running through Millwood...and all roads lead right back to the mining camp.

BURDEN OF TRUTH is produced by IFC Films and Entertainment One in association with Eagle Vision Inc., with executive producers Ilana Frank (“The Detail”), Adam Pettle (“Rookie Blue”), Jocelyn Hamilton (“Private Eyes”), Bradley Simpson (“Rookie Blue”), Linda Pope (“Saving Hope”), Kristin Kreuk (“Beauty And The Beast”) and Kyle Irving (“Esther”).
