Season 2 Premieres Sunday July 29 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT
Back for a much anticipated second season, THE BEAT, produced by Montreal based Galafilm Production, delivers the same gritty, high-octane action as it did the first time around. Over 10 riveting episodes, the show follows the Vancouver Police Department’s Beat Enforcement Team, as they patrol the city’s Downtown Eastside— a hotbed of drug abuse, prostitution, mental illness and violent crime. Maintaining order in a place like this is no small task. It takes tireless work, and a ready supply of courage and compassion. Luckily, the men and women of the BET are up to the challenge.
The Beat delivers in-your-face confrontations as the B.E.T. patrols, serves, and protects the city’s downtown eastside community – a hotbed of drug abuse, prostitution, mental illness, and violent crime. Maintaining order will not be easy, and to do so takes tireless work with a ready supply of courage and compassion. Is the B.E.T up to the challenge?
Led by 20-year veteran Sgt. Toby Hinton and adrenaline junkie Sgt. Mark Steinkampf, The Beat follows the intersecting stories of six police officers who live for the street. The squad includes Const. Hobbs, a third generation police officer who spends his free time volunteering; Const. Addison, an ex-journalist who blogs on the side; and Const. Brown, the longest-serving female officer on the force – up for a promotion any day. The newest member to the team, Const. Smith, is no rookie and has quickly become the go-to guy for large scale drug busts. Followed by cameras 24/7, each episode of The Beat provides an in-depth look at the professional lives of the officers.
