LONDON — Fox-owned cabler FX has acquired the Canuck crime drama “The Border” from Fireworks International, the television arm of U.K. distrib ContentFilm.

Produced by Toronto-based White Pine Pictures in association with Canadian pubcaster the CBC, the 26-part skein will premiere on FX in the U.K. next spring, alongside such U.S. imports as “Dexter,” “The Wire” and “24.”
