Netflix Picks Up ‘Crossing Lines’ for U.S. Streaming After NBC Run

Netflix Picks Up 'Crossing Lines' U.S.

Netflix acquired exclusive U.S. streaming rights to the first season of “Crossing Lines,” following the crime series’ run on NBC last summer.

All 10 episodes of the series are now available to Netflix’s streaming customers in the States, in the show’s second U.S. window. “Crossing Lines,” produced by Studiocanal’s Tandem Communications and Bernero Productions, stars William Fichtner, Marc Lavoine and Donald Sutherland. One-hour drama is about the International Criminal Court’s special crime unit, which functions as a European FBI, to investigate organized crime that crosses borders.

The show is a co-production with TF1 Production (for TF1 Network) in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks’ AXN channel. “Crossing Lines” was created by Edward Allen Bernero (showrunner of “Criminal Minds”), who is executive producer with Tandem president Rola Bauer.

“Crossing Lines” is currently in production on season 2, comprising 12 episodes, now shooting on location in France after wrapping production in the Czech Republic and Bulgaria. The second season features recurring guest stars including Carrie-Anne Moss (“Vegas,” “The Matrix”) and Ray Stevenson (“Dexter,” “The Book of Eli”). NBC has not committed to picking up the soph season of the show.

“Crossing Line” season 1 has been sold into more than 180 territories. In the U.K., Amazon’s LoveFilm streaming video service acquired exclusive rights to “Crossing Lines” in the territory last fall.
