Canadian cottage country the backdrop of new Amazon series The Lake

Tragically Hip and maple syrup heist among the Cancon offerings coming from streaming service. Cancon was centre-stage at Prime Video's showcase this week of upcoming releases for this year and beyond.

The Amazon streaming service announced a lineup of content developed and filmed in Canada during a press conference at Toronto's Massey Hall, including the cottage-country dramedy The Lake. Filmed in North Bay, Ont., the eight-part series debuting on June 17 stars Julia Stiles and Canadian actor Jordan Gavaris. The story revolves around Gavaris's character wanting to reconnect with his daughter at the family cottage, only to find out his parents gave it to his step-sister.

"What we kind of poke fun at in the show is the gossip and the insular nature of those groups," said Stiles, who plays Maisey-May, the step-sister.
