German broadcaster Das Erste acquired the detective drama The Brokenwood Mysteries from All3media International.

Produced by South Pacific Pictures, the series showcases the murder-mystery stories set in a quiet country town, focusing on detective Mike Shepherd who discovers murder in unlikely domestic situations.

Jonathan Hughes, sales manager EMEA at All3media, stated, “The Brokenwood Mysteries is a true gem of a detective series and the vineyards and river valleys of New Zealand are as much a central part of the drama as its engaging characters and innovative murders. We are confident that Das Erste’s German audiences, discerning as they are in the crime genre, will relish the plots of The Brokenwood Mysteries.”
