The Incorruptibles will be executive produced by Rosa Entertainment’s CEO and founder Sidney Sherman (Lonely Hearts), Robert Franke at ZDFE, and the Thorntons.

Details of the storyline are being kept under wraps but the hour-long English-language drama is said to be “a high-concept, violent action-thriller with satirical black comedy elements.”

ZDFE, which will handle worldwide sales, and Rosa Entertainment will develop the script and package it before taking it to market.

Franke, VP of drama at ZDFE, described The Incorruptibles as “an important cornerstone of our new collaboration strategy with US producers.”

“It will help ZDF Enterprises to further diversify its catalogue of high quality drama series by adding a new programme colour in the much underserved segment of high-concept action series,” he said.

Film and TV prodco Rosa Entertainment was launched in 2005. The Thornton brothers are behind scripts including The Revenger, which had been under option with The Weinstein Company.
