Eric Dane and Kathleen Robertson are on board for Canadian miniseries THE FIXER. The four hour series centers on an investigator looking into an oil rig disaster and going up against a rival private investigation led by a secret tipster. Eventually, the duo get caught up in a bigger plot by a band of “fixers” to target Washington, D.C. with a disastrous event that can only succeed if the pair is dead. The project is being produced by Canadian company Muse Entertainment and will be directed by “Sliding Doors” writer/director Peter Howitt.
Dane is best known for his long stint as McSteamy on Shonda Rhimes’ medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy,” which led to spin-off series “Private Practice.” On the silver screen, Dane has appeared in diverse projects, from family dramedy “Marley & Me” to sci-fi action flick “X-Men: The Last Stand” to rom-com “Valentine’s Day.” He currently stars in TNT’s drama “The Last Ship.”
Likewise, Robertson got her big break in TV, playing Clare Arnold on 90s hit “Beverly Hills, 90210,” but has since gone on to series like “Boss,” “Bates Motel,” and TNT’s “Murder in the First,” where she stars opposite Taye Diggs. Next up, Robertson is set to star in Lionsgate’s horror/thriller “The Vatican Tapes.
