The first season of Tandem Communications’ drama series Crossing Lines, starring William Fichtner and Donald Sutherland, will receive its linear broadcast premiere on UKTV’s Alibi channel on Tuesday July 7th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created and developed by Edward Allen Bernero and Rola Bauer, Crossing Lines is set in exotic locations and taps into the charter of the International Criminal Court to investigate serialized cross-border crimes and to hunt down global criminals. The series stars William Fichtner, Donald Sutherland, Marc Lavoine, Gabriella Pession, Tom Wlaschiha, Moon Dailly, Richard Flood and Lara Rossi.
While this marks the first time that Crossing Lines has been broadcast on linear television, both the first and second seasons of Crossing Lines have been available to view on Amazon Prime Instant Video UK for quite some time. UKTV’s deal with Tandem also covers the 12 episode second season of Crossing Lines, which is expected to air on Alibi immediately following the conclusion of the ten episode first season.
Crossing Lines has been a hit for Tandem Communication, who have sold the procedural to some 180 countries. Off the back of that success, TF1 and Sony Pictures Television Networks commissioned a third season, which recently wrapped production in Europe. That season, however, is poised to be one of change as Frank Spotnitz replaced Ed Bernero as showrunner and cast members William Fichtner, Mark Lavoine, Gabriella Pession and Richard Flood exited the series.
