Fresh off the blockbuster success of Rookie Blue and so-so ratings for Combat Hospital, Global TV is sticking with shows profiling those who risk their lives with their six-part series Bomb Girls. The drama profiles the life-altering experiences of five brave Canadian women who risk their lives working in a munitions factory during the Second World War.
Starring in Bomb Girls is Oscar® nominee Meg Tilly (Agnes of God, The Big Chill), Jodi Balfour (The Sinking of the Laconia), Charlotte Hegele (Murdoch Mysteries), Ali Liebert (Hellcats) and Anastasia Philips (Skins)
The series also stars a trio of guys, including Antonio Cupo (L’Ombra del destino), Sebastian Pigott and Peter Outerbridge (ReGenesis).
Before it premieres on January 4th, you can now check out a sneak peak at the series.
Anytime you name a show that can easily be turned into a bad pun, I get nervous. So it will be interesting to see how Bomb Girls does. Will it be a bomb or a blast? You also have to wonder if the the crash landing that is Pan Am (see what I did there) and Playboy Club, has Global a little nervous. Will Bomb Girls be the first show to capture some of Mad Men’s vintage success?
We’ll soon find out.
