Walking Dead?


You'd have to substitute hate for love.

This one might be a little more obscure (of course, I say that and someone might have it instantly):

The trials and travails of a troupe of actors and crew in a town known for its Shakespeare festival, one of whom is dead.

Dr Google helped me find the answer.

I see the series has won numerous awards.

I had never heard of this series before, but then, I don't watch much television either.

I figured, as a Canadian, you might get it.

However, you haven't actually answered yet...

Geographically, Toronto is very close to Montreal.

Psychologically, it is as far as Vancouver.

Synopsis:

The TV series depicts significant parts of society in a certain time and place, which includes a lot of cigarette smoking, drinking, sexism, feminism, adultery, homophobia, antisemitism, racism, and where alienation, social mobility and ruthlessness set the tone of the show.

The cast includes characters obsessed with creating an image rather than tending to what lies underneath, illustrating lack of psychological awareness, paradoxically being very well tuned into the desires of the outside world and yet entirely out of touch with their true selves.

Identity is one of the key themes of the show, and nobody is ever quite who they appear to be.

[Level of difficulty: Easy.]

That sounds like it could be a mildly hard reference to the beginning of Quantum Leap, but if you say that your clue is supposed to be easy, then you're probably giving a clue that's more direct, in which case, I'll need to think more on it.

Edit: Or dysjunct may have just gotten it, now.
