Captain Miro Da Silva (Steve Bacic) along with Rescue Specialists Andrew Vanderlee (Jeremy Guilbaut), Carly Greig (Zoie Palmer) and First Mate Laura Nelson (Gemini nominee for Durham County, Sonya Salomaa) are back saving lives on the water while trying to keep the storms in their personal lives at bay. Turning up the action and turning out the star power, the new season of The Guard features Roger Cross (24) as Port Hallet’s new Officer in Charge, Jim McGregor with returning special guest David James Elliott (JAG) as David Renwald.

Making waves in international waters, The Guard has successfully sold in over 30 territories including France, Poland, Hungary and the Middle East, with recent sales to A&E in Latin America, MNET in South Africa, YLE in Finland and RTBF in Belgium.
