Germany’s VOX Acquires David Tennant Starrer ‘The Escape Artist’

BERLIN — Germany’s VOX has secured the rights to Red Arrow Intl.’s thriller “The Escape Artist,” which stars David Tennant (“Broadchurch”).

The miniseries, which was written by David Wolstencroft, was produced by Hilary Bevan Jones and Paul Frift of Red Arrow’s Endor Prods.

“The Escape Artist,” which attracted 6.2 million viewers on BBC One in the U.K., equating to a 23.3% market share, sees Tennant star as defense lawyer Will Burton. Burton specializes in getting people out of tight legal corners, but when his talents acquit the prime suspect in a horrific murder trial, this brilliance comes back to bite him.

Ladya van Eeden, program director at VOX, said: “‘The Escape Artist’ has already drawn the British public under its spell, and now we are delighted to bring its success to VOX. The dense, gripping narrative technique of the series coupled with the program’s star cast fits perfectly into VOX’s program schedule.”
