Channel 5 has snapped up UK rights to Played, a Canadian drama series about elite undercover cops who pose as drug dealers, paid assassins, gun runners and gangsters to infiltrate criminal worlds and collect evidence.
The 13-part series was originally commissioned by the CTV network and is being produced by Muse Entertainmen and Back Alley Film Production.
Played stars Vincent Walsh (Hemingway vs. Callaghan), Chandra West (NYPD Blue) and Lisa Marcos (Flashpoint).
Sebastian Cardwell, Acquisitions Manager at Channel 5 commented: “Channel 5 has always been a home for smart, sassy crime procedural drama. PLAYED is no exception, and we’re sure it’ll be a favourite with our audience.”
“Muse is delighted to have Channel 5 its broadcast partner in the UK. Its reach in that market is very deep and its audience fits perfectly with the smart contemporary show that PLAYED represents,” said Muse Entertainment’s President Michael Prupas.
