Blue follows Julia Stiles (The Bourne Identity) as an accountant who is forced to work as an escort to make ends meet.
The series started out as a short-form project on female-skewed digital platform Wigs, which produced it. It was then packaged into a regular TV series, which is distributed internationally by FremantleMedia International.
Jamie Lynn, executive VP of sales and distribution, EMEA, for FremantleMedia International added: “Blue is a distinctive series that features A-list Hollywood talent in front of the camera and a wealth of Hollywood heavyweights behind. We are thrilled that Lifetime is bringing this first-rate show to UK audiences.”
The series will debut on Lifetime in the UK this spring.
Fox-backed Wigs is the digital business founded by filmmakers and producers Jon and Jake Avnet and Rodrigo Garcia. It works with its affiliate Indigenous Media, a digital production group from the Avnets and Garcia, which ITV and WPP acquired last year.
