"The Listener," developed by award-winning Shaftesbury Films and Canadian broadcaster CTV and produced in association with CTV, FIC and NBC, follows Toby Logan (Craig Olejnik, "The Timekeeper") a 25-year-old paramedic who has a big secret -- he's a telepath.
Until now, Toby kept his ability hidden, exploring its possibilities only with his long-time mentor and confidant, Dr. Ray Mercer (Colm Feore, "24: Redemption").
Toby makes the rounds with his comedic paramedic partner, "Oz" Bey (Ennis Esmer), helping people in crisis, and in the process, trying to unravel the truth about his past.
While his professional life is in check, Toby's personal life could use its own rescue. And with the help of Detective Charlie Marks (Lisa Marcos, "Diary of a Mad Black Woman") and his E.R. doctor/ex-girlfriend, Olivia Fawcett (Mylène Dinh-Robic, "Da Vinci's City Hall"), Toby realizes his gift can help others.
The series executive producers include International Emmy Award winner Christina Jennings ("ReGenesis") and Scott Garvie ("Murdoch Mysteries") for Shaftesbury Films; Michael Amo ("Blessed Stranger: After Flight 111"); Tom Chehak ("ReGenesis"), and Clement Virgo ("Poor Boy's Game"). "The Listener" is distributed internationally by Shine-Reveille.
