Michelle Latimer, 'Trickster' Director, Resigns Following Questions About Her Indigenous Identity

 

December 23, 2020

Director and co-creator Michelle Latimer has resigned from the "Trickster" television series, she announced in a Facebook post.

Michelle Latimer, director and co-creator of the Canadian television series "Trickster," announced in a Facebook post on Monday that she is resigning from the show's upcoming second season after a CBC News investigation last week called into question her Indigenous identity.

"It's with a heavy heart that I am resigning from Season 2 of Trickster," Latimer wrote in the Facebook post on Monday morning.

"When I first read the novels that inspired Trickster, I was struck by the powerful tale of a family coming together to overcome adversity. I envisioned this story as a television series that would celebrate Indigenous talent and amplify Indigenous voices."
