Acorn takes Offence from Fremantle

No Offence’s second season aired in the UK last year

North American SVoD service Acorn TV has picked up police procedural No Offence and a number of other UK programmes from distributor FremantleMedia International (FMI).

Acorn TV has acquired exclusive digital and home video rights to the first two seasons of the series, which was written by Shameless scribe Paul Abbott and produced by his UK prodco AbbottVision for Channel 4.

No Offence follows a team of police officers charged with keeping law and order in an area of UK city Manchester, and has run for two seasons. It is exec produced by Abbott, Martin Carr and Paul Coe for AbbottVision and distributed internationally by FMI.

RLJ Entertainment-owned Acorn, which is dedicated to international television, has also acquired digital rights to real-life espionage miniseries Reilly, Ace of Spies plus BBC sitcom Goodnight Sweetheart and ITV comedy After Henry.

The acquisitions follow on from last month’s announcement that Acorn would be teaming up with Australian outfit Jungle Entertainment to coproduce family comedy Sando and that it had revived former Sky UK comedy Agatha Raisin as its first original.
