ITV Studios, Pramer ink drama deal

52-hour package includes medical, crime series

LONDON — In the run-up to next week’s TV mart Mipcom, ITV Studios Global Entertainment has closed a number of deals on its British crime and medical dramas.

Latin American cable network Pramer has acquired a 52-hour drama package for its Film&Arts channel.

Titles include season two of Edinburgh-based crime series “Case Histories,” which are produced by Ruby Film and Television, and topline Jason Isaacs; season two of medical drama “Monroe,” which is produced by Mammoth Screen, and stars James Nesbitt as a neurosurgeon; season three of femme detective drama “Vera,” which is produced by ITV Studios, and stars Brenda Blethyn; and season six of the Oxford-set detective drama “Lewis,” which is produced by ITV Studios, and stars Kevin Whately.

In Asia, True Visions in Thailand and AXN Korea have acquired the second season of “Case Histories,” while Prime TV New Zealand has bought season two of “Monroe.”

Among the new shows on ITV Studios’ Mipcom slate will be “Mr Selfridge,” which stars Jeremy Piven as the American retail entrepreneur, and is created by Andrew Davies; and U.S. drama “Rectify,” which stars Aden Young and was created by Ray McKinnon.

Other fresh shows include Seville-set detective series “Falcon,” and “Endeavour,” which is a prequel to the long-running detective series “Morse.”

The distrib will also be pursuing further sales on Stephen Poliakoff’s “Dancing on the Edge,” which it launched at Mip-TV in April. The miniseries, about jazz musicians in high-society London in the 1930s, stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, and also features Jacqueline Bisset and John Goodman.
