The Sister, the new ITV thriller from Luther writer Neil Cross, has been picked up by international broadcasters including BBC First in Benelux, Czech TV, French streamer Salto and SVT in Sweden.

The four-episode miniseries was produced by Fremantle-owned Euston Films and premiered in the UK on commercial broadcaster ITV last week to 5.6 million viewers – a 20.7% audience share.

Fremantle is shopping the psychological thriller internationally and has done deals in 75 territories, with Irish pubcaster RTÉ, TVNZ in New Zealand and SBS in Australia also among the channels set to air it.

TV2 in Norway, Canal+ in Poland, HBO in Spain and Portugal, Viasat in Russia and streaming platform TV+ in Turkey have also acquired the show, which aired across consecutive nights on ITV. Disney-owned streamer Hulu holds US rights to the series and will launch it in January.

The plot follows a man haunted by the death of a young woman at a party, the true circumstances of which only he and an eccentric old acquaintance know.

Writer Cross (Luther, Hard Sun, Spooks, Mama) based the show on his own novel, Burial. He exec produces alongside Euston Films MD Kate Harwood (Dublin Murders, Hard Sun, Baghdad Central) and Noemi Spanos (Dublin Murders).
