Following is what is NEW to BET+ the week of April 23-29:
“DIGGSTOWN” STREAMING NOW on BET+
BET+ premieres six-part series “DIGGSTOWN” following Marcie Diggs, played by Vinessa Antoine (General Hospital, Being Erica), a star corporate lawyer who, after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution, decides to reconsider her priorities. Set in the gritty arena of a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, the team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers - messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty, and gender bias. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system. The BET+ original “DIGGSTOWN” premieres Thursday, April 23, on BET+ (@BETplus)
Created by Floyd Kane (Across the Line), “DIGGSTOWN” continues the mission of BET+ to bring rich, multi-faceted stories that span the full spectrum of the Black experience and showcases the expansion of its library of originals. Joining Antoine is a star-studded cast including Natasha Henstridge (Species), C. David Johnson (Street Legal), Stacey Farber (Grace and Frankie), Brandon Oakes (Arctic Air), Shailene Garnett (Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments), Tim Rozon (Wynonna Earp), and Dwain Murphy (Titans).
