Telemystery: NBC Acquires Crossing Lines to Air Summer 2013

Telemystery Prime Time Crime: Mystery and Suspense on Television

We first heard of the crime drama Crossing Lines when it was announced last year at MIPTV. Co-produced by German producer Tandem and Criminal Minds showrunner Ed Bernero, the storyline taps into the charter of the International Criminal Court (ICC) to mandate a special crime unit to investigate serialized crimes that cross over European borders and to hunt down criminals to bring them to justice.

We're now learning that NBC has acquired the US broadcast rights to the series, which it will air during Summer 2013.

"We're making scripted projects a priority for our summer lineup, and this is a great fit," said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman of NBC Entertainment.

"Fans of procedural crime shows will feel very much at home with Crossing Lines and adopt its team of characters as their new family," added Bernero. "I couldn't be more pleased to come home to NBC, which recognized the show's potential."

Starring William Fichtner, Marc Lavoine, Gabriella Pession, Tom Wlaschiha, Genevieve O'Reilly, Richard Flood, and Donald Sutherland, the series was filmed on location in Fall 2012 in France and the Czech Republic. Ten episodes comprise the first season.
