MIPCOM: French pay TV broadcaster Canal+ has acquired four crime dramas from the UK and US.

Topping the list are American Crime (11×42’) from ABC, featuring Timothy Hutton (Ordinary People) and Felicity Huffman (Desperate Housewives); and The Driver (3×50’), starring David Morrissey (The Walking Dead).

Made by Red Productions, majority-owned by Studiocanal, the latter drama has just aired on BBC1.

Canal+ has also picked up Fortitude (12×52), starring Christopher Eccleston and Michael Gambon, which is made by Fifty Fathoms and Tiger Aspect for the UK’s Sky Atlantic.

It has also pre-bought US ‘Twin Peaks-style’ drama Wayward Pines (10×52’), starring Matt Dillon and Melissa Leo. The series is due to air simultaneously on Canal + and Fox US in 2015.
