“This is a natural outgrowth of our successful teamwork with both Haddock Entertainment and Thunderbird Films,” Program Partners co-founder Ritch Colbert said.

“Intelligence” stars Ian Tracey as Jimmy Reardon, the third generation head of a West Coast crime family who’s involved in a cat-and-mouse game with police informants.

Program Partners is marketing “Da Vinci’s Inquest,” “Intelligence” and its Crime Watch program block, featuring “Cold Squad” and “Stone Undercover,” as an outgrowth of its worldwide distribution agreement with Thunderbird.
