Exclusive: I have just learned that Universal Channel has closed a deal with 20th Century Fox Television Distribution to acquire the exclusive first run UK broadcast rights to The Finder, the short lived spin-off of Fox’s long running drama series Bones. I’m also being told that Universal Channel currently has the series penciled in for a July premiere.
Created by Hart Hanson, The Finder follows Walter Sherman, a former MP who, while serving in the United States Army, earned a reputation for being able to track down anything or anyone. Walter may have left the military, but his reputation as a discreet professional who can unearth anything and anyone has been passed on to generals, politicians and other powerful figures. His first post-military assignment was to find the CIA head honcho’s missing daughter and bring her home. Walter did both, and since then has never been without an assignment. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television, the drama series stars Geoff Stults, Michael Clarke Duncan, Mercedes Masohn, Maddie Hasson and Toby Hemingway.
TVWise’s Acquisitions Scorecard has been updated with this new information. We will bring you the UK premiere date for The Finder just as soon as it is announced by Universal.
