Italy’s Rai picks up Jean Reno cop series Jo

Italian public broadcaster Rai has acquired Jo, a new cop series starring Jean Reno.

The show is produced by Atlantique and set in the French capital, Paris. It is distributed by Red Arrow International (fka SevenOne International).

The Italian deal follows a sale to German commercial broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1. In France, commercial broadcaster TF1 has the free-to-air rights.

The series stars Jean Reno as Jo St-Clair, a veteran French detective tackling the city’s most challenging murder cases that takes place in iconic Parisian locations including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Catacombs.

It is written by veteran Law & Order writer Rene Balcer and directed by Kristoffer Nyholm, director of Danish crime drama Forbrydelsen.
