Acorn TV, the US SVoD service dedicated to British television, has boarded the third season of BBC4 comedy Detectorists as a coproducer.

The streaming service previously acquired the first two seasons of the show from distributor DRG and has now joined the production.

The series, about the friendship between two metal-detecting enthusiasts played by Mackenzie Crook (who also created the show) and Toby Jones, is produced by DRG, Channel X North, Lola Entertainment and Treasure Trove Productions.

It joins other coproductions at Acorn including Acceptable Risk, Girlfriends and Keeping Faith.

“With its perfect casting, subtle humour and first-rate writing, Mackenzie Crook has created a winning comedy that our subscribers as well as the US media have embraced,” said Shane Murphy, MD at Acorn Media.
