Vinessa Antoine (Diggstown) is set for a recurring role opposite Kyle Gallner in CBS All Access’ straight-to-series true-crime drama Interrogation. Co-created by Swedish writer-producer Anders Weidemann and John Mankiewicz, Interrogation is an original concept based on a true story that spanned more than 30 years, in which a young man (Gallner) was charged and convicted of brutally murdering his mother. The series’ first nine episodes will be available to binge in any order with each episode structured around an interrogation. The multi-linear approach will give viewers the opportunity to follow their instincts and develop their own interpretations of the facts of the case and ultimately decide innocence or guilt. Antoine plays a street-smart diner waitress who becomes crucial in a decades-old murder investigation after becoming involved with the private investigator. Canadian born Antoine’s TV credits include Fox’s The Resident, Being Erica, Haven, Heartland, NCIS, Lucky 7 and General Hospital. She is repped in the U.S. by Buchwald and manager Brinda Bhatt, and The Characters Talent Agency in Toronto.
