BET Plus Debuts Legal Drama ‘Diggstown’ Starring Vinessa Antoine

Diggstown (BET+)

BET+ has added the Canadian drama series Diggstown to its programming lineup.

The original series stars Vinessa Antoine (General Hospital, Being Erica) as attorney Marcie Diggs.

According to a description from streaming service BET+: After her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution, Marcie decides to reconsider her priorities. Set in the gritty arena of a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, the team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty, and gender bias.
