Would Be Kings

Would Be Kings is a Canadian 4-hour television mini-series directed by David Wellington which aired on CTV on January 27 and January 28, 2008.


Based loosely on Shakespeare's play King Henry IV (part 1), Patrick Lehane (Currie Graham) and Jamie Collins (Ben Bass) are cops. They are also cousins and Patrick is Jamie's boss. Patrick is the "by-the-books" cop while Jamie is the always-breaking-the-rules type of cop who is also dealing with a drug addiction. As their relationship comes to a crossroads, Jamie is forced to clean up his act and Patrick gets involved in questionable police work which leads to dirty money and murder. He also has a wife (Natasha Henstridge) and daughter (Clare Stone) to protect.
