Lovefilm has snapped up the rights to Crossing Lines, a new global crime-drama from World Without End producers Tandem Communications.
The show debuted in the US in June and UK viewers will be able to watch the entire series on demand from October 25th.
Crossing Lines is based on the International Criminal Court’s real life mandate to investigate serialised cross-border crimes and hunt down global criminals.
The cast includes stars Donald Sutherland, William Fichtner, Gabriella Pession and Tom Wlaschiha.
Chris Bird, Director of Content Strategy at Lovefilm, said: “Today is another milestone moment in Lovefilm’s history as we take our next step into bringing new and previously unseen premium TV series to UK audiences.
“Knowing how much our members enjoy Criminal Minds, we are incredibly excited to become the exclusive home of Crossing Lines in the UK, and we think our TV fans are going to be completely captivated by this European police drama.”
Randall Broman, Vice President Sales at Tandem Communications, added: “Together with Lovefilm we are breaking new ground for audiences who are using the Internet more often than ever to find their fill of quality film or TV, so partnering with Lovefilm – who have proven over the years to be innovators and pioneers in bringing first-class content on an alternative platform to British viewers – was an easy decision for us.”
