The Trial of Christine Keeler aired on BBC1 in December

BBC First and ABC in Australia are among a number of networks to have acquired BBC1 period drama The Trial of Christine Keeler from Keshet International.

Written by Amanda Coe and starring James Norton and Emilia Fox, the drama is based on the infamous Profumo scandal which rocked Britain in the 1960s. The six-part series premiered on BBC1 in the UK in late December.

Premium drama channel BBC First has picked up the first-window rights to the series in Australia, while national broadcaster ABC has taken the second window.

BBC First has also acquired the first-window rights in Benelux and Africa, while Dutch pubcaster NPO has picked up second-window rights in the Netherlands.

In Spain, female-skewing Cosmo TV has bought the first-window rights, while Acorn Media International in the UK has acquired home video rights.

The home video and digital rights for both Australia and New Zealand have been picked up by ABC’s Home Entertainment division.

The Trial of Christine Keeler is produced by Ecosse Films and Great Meadow Productions. Exec producers are Kate Triggs and Douglas Rae for Ecosse, Lucy Richer for the BBC and Coe.

Keshet International distributes the series internationally, alongside Endeavor Content in the US.
