CBC Orders Allan Hawco’s Saint Pierre

Another Allan Hawco venture is heading to our screens! CBC has ordered the cop series ‘Saint Pierre.’ The project’s filming will start in St. John’s in Newfoundland next month. The plot revolves around two dedicated police officers who tackle crime and uphold justice on the French-owned Islands of St. Pierre et Miquelon, situated off the coast of Newfoundland. Hawco serves as the series’ showrunner.

Hawco is a versatile figure in the industry, known for his contributions to the entertainment field in varying capacities. Recently, he contributed as a writer and an actor to CBC’s ‘Caught,’ in which he portrayed David Slaney. The show follows Slaney’s escape from prison as he attempts to reconnect with his partner for one final drug deal, all while evading the authorities. The writer-actor created CBC’s comedy-drama ‘Republic of Doyle,’ in which he also starred as Jake Doyle. The show revolves around Jake and his father, Malachy, who operate a private investigations agency in St. John’s, Newfoundland, engaging in various cases that often blur the lines between right and wrong.

Hawco portrayed Andrew Mathews in ‘Sullivan’s Crossing’ and Gale Favreau in ‘Moonshine.’ He took on the role of Josh in the film ‘Quicksand,’ which depicts the story of a married couple on the brink of divorce who find themselves trapped in quicksand while hiking through a rainforest in Colombia, requiring them to cooperate to survive.

Hawco starred as Alex in ‘Midnight at the Paradise,’ exploring the intricacies of relationships through three couples at different life stages, highlighting the elements essential for a successful marriage. Lastly, in the horror mystery ‘The Breach,’ he appeared as John Hawkins, portraying the Chief of Police in Lone Crow tasked with investigating a mysterious case involving a mutilated body discovered along the Porcupine River. His popular credits extend to Netflix’s ‘Another Life’ and Prime Video’s ‘Jack Ryan.’

In the past, St. John’s served as the setting for another project involving Hawco, ‘Republic of Doyle.’ Recently, the area hosted the filming of productions such as ‘Everything Christmas’ and ‘Astrid and Lilly Save the World.’
