TORONTO – The U.S. network ReelzChannel has picked up the Canadian police procedural Cracked.
The White Pine Pictures drama, which airs in Canada on the CBC, stars Stefanie von Pfetten (Battlestar Galactica) and David Sutcliffe at work in a Toronto-based Psych Crimes Unit.
The U.S. deal for the one hour import was negotiated by Entertainment One's Carrie Stein, who represents Cracked in the U.S. market.
German sales outfit BetaFilm earlier sold Cracked to French broadcaster Groupe Canal+ and companion French Pay TV Channel 13ème Rue Universal / NBCU.
ReelzChannel has aired other Canadian series like The Kennedys and World Without End.
The U.S. channel is also co-developing a miniseries based on J. Randy Taraborrelli’s book After Camelot: A Personal History of the Kennedy Family from 1968 to the Present, with Montreal indie producer Muse Entertainment.
