US drama series The Pinkertons will receive its UK premiere on UKTV’s Drama channel on Sunday August 30th at 8pm, it has been announced.
The Pinkertons follows The Pinkerton Detective Agency’s founder Allan Pinkerton, his son, William, and America’s first female detective, Kate Warne, as they investigate a myriad of cases in the 1860s. The series is produced by Rosetta Media & Buffalo Gal Pictures and stars Angus Macfadyen (Turn), Martha MacIsaac (1600 Penn) and Jacob Blair (Battlestar Galactica). The Pinkertons also shows how the Pinkerton Agency revolutionised detective work through the use of undercover work and the mug shot.
UKTV acquired The Pinkertons from international distributor Zodiak Media back in January 2015 to much fanfare as the deal marked the first time they had acquired exclusive first run rights to a US series for their recently launched Drama channel. “The Pinkertons will complement the channel’s existing slate of dramas and I’m sure viewers will enjoy this compelling series”, Drama’s General Manager Adrian Wills said at the time of the acquisition.
