H2o just add water season 1 trailer
H2O is a Canadian political drama two-part miniseries that first aired on the CBC Television October 31, 2004. It starred Paul Gross and Leslie Hope, with former politician Belinda Stronach making a cameo appearance. Written by Gross and John Krizanc and directed by Charles Binamé, it was nominated for five Gemini Awards and four DGC Craft Awards. It won one Golden Nymph Award for best actor (Paul Gross).
When the Prime Minister of Canada dies in a canoeing accident, his son, Tom McLaughlin (Paul Gross), goes into politics and ultimately becomes Prime Minister. The investigation into his father's death, however, reveals that it was no accident, raising the possibility of assassination. Tom accepts the U.S. President's plan to develop the Great Recycling and Northern Development Canal to help the United States with their water shortage. Sgt. Leah Collins (Leslie Hope) and Member of Parliament Marc Lavigne (Guy Nadon) slowly piece together evidence of a conspiracy that threatens Canada's existence.
Filming took place all over the city of Ottawa. Some the bigger locations included Earnscliffe and the Parliament Buildings of Canada.
The Trojan Horse, featuring McLaughlin's continuing political ambitions and struggles in the wake of the events of H2O, premiered on CBC on Sunday, 30 March 2008.
