Third Ransom demanded by Global, CBS


Global in Canada and US broadcast network CBS are moving ahead with a third season of drama series Ransom.

The show is produced by transatlantic producer and distributor Entertainment One (eOne), Frank Spotnitz’s Big Light Productions and Kew Media-owned Canadian prodco Sienna Films. It is filmed at Korda Studios in Hungary capital Budapest.

Season three will feature 13 episodes and the returning cast includes Luke Roberts and Karen LeBlanc. Shooting will begin in October, with the show returning to screens in 2019.

The series follows an elite team of hostage negotiators who save lives when nobody else can. It was inspired by the professional experiences of crisis negotiator Laurent Combalbert, who, along with his partner Marwan Mery, is among the top negotiators in the world.

Ransom was created by David Vainola (Diamonds, Combat Hospital) and Spotnitz (The X-Files, The Man in the High Castle), who also serves as executive producer.

It’s the latest renewal from Corus Entertainment-owned Global, which recently greenlit new seasons of Mary Kills People, Private Eyes and Big Brother Canada.

eOne, which has sealed deals for previous seasons of the show with AMC Networks in Iberia and Australian pay TV outfit Foxtel, among others, will distribute the new episodes globally.
