Acorn TV Takes ‘No Offence’ in FremantleMedia Drama Deal

Acorn TV has landed exclusive U.S. streaming rights to “No Offence,” the British-produced crime drama from “Shameless” creator Paul Abbott. It originally went out on Channel 4 in the U.K. and will launch on Acorn on April 16.

The streaming service, which specializes in English-language drama, has landed both seasons of “No Offence” as part of a wider deal with FremantleMedia International. It has also picked up 1980s ITV miniseries “Reilly, Ace of Spies” starring Sam Neill, six seasons of classic BBC sitcom “Goodnight Sweetheart” and four series of ITV comedy “After Henry.”

Acorn has previously acquired such series as Australian comedy-drama “The Heart Guy” from FremantleMedia. Don Klees, VP of programming for Acorn at RLJ Entertainment, called “No Offence” a “fresh take on police procedurals mixed with cutting0edge humor.”

He added: “Additionally, we love to provide our subscribers classic, hidden gems, so ‘Reilly, Ace of Spies’ and the U.S. debut of ‘Goodnight Sweetheart’ will make excellent additions to our constantly growing catalog.”
