Scripted with wit and style, Whistler tells the story of the seemingly
perfect world-class mountain resort that is the Mecca to elite athletes from
all over the world. But when local snowboarding legend Beck MacKaye (David
Paetkau) returns home from the 2006 Torino Winter Olympics with a gold medal,
only to be later found dead on the slopes, it sends shockwaves throughout the
community. Beck's mysterious accident forever changes the lives of the
friends and family that knew and loved him - all of whom have their stories
to tell - and their secrets to keep.
Whistler features an exciting, multigenerational ensemble cast that boasts
Canada's newest break-out stars - such as David Paetkau (CSI: Miami, Final
Destination 2, LAX) as the doomed Olympic Gold Medalist Beck MacKaye - along
with established veterans such as Nicholas Lea (X-Files, CSI, Chaos) as
Beck's father and manager Ethan MacKaye.
According to this article, Nick's new series, WHISTLER, has been picked up for U.K. distribution by Fireworks International.
