Telemystery: BBC Developing Remake of 1980s Crime Drama Bergerac

Telemystery Prime Time Crime: Mystery and Suspense on Television

BBC is developing a remake of the 1980s drama Bergerac, which starred a pre-Midsomer Murders John Nettles in the title role.

Airing for ten years — from 1981 through 1991 — the series featured Detective Sergeant Jim Bergerac, an officer in Le Bureau des Étrangers, a (fictional) division of the States of Jersey police department. (Jersey is a small island off the coast of Normandy, France.) Eighty-one episodes were filmed, plus an annual Christmas special.

BBC expects the new series, if it is commissioned, to be a prequel to the original, something similar to what ITV is doing with its series Endeavour, featuring a young Inspector Morse.
