Granada International has acquired a brand new series of drama mysteries from Canadian producer Shaftesbury Films.
Thirteen one-hour episodes of The Murdoch Mysteries will be produced by Shaftesbury Films in Canada and will launch at Mipcom later this year.
According to C21media.net
The series is based on the trilogy of successful TV movies also produced by Shaftesbury Films and distributed by Granada International, starring Peter Outerbridge and Keeley Hawes, which were in turn adapted from the novels of Maureen Jennings.
The new television series will be produced for CHUM Canada and UKTV in the UK.
Set in Victorian Toronto, The Murdoch Mysteries reacquaints viewers with young Detective William Murdoch, who uses progressive forensic techniques such as finger printing to successfully solve cases and apprehend murderers.
