UKTV’s home of crime drama, Alibi, today announced it has ordered a third series of international hit drama Crossing Lines.
“Crossing Lines has proved a hit with Alibi viewers and we are delighted to be bringing them more of the shows they love. It is fast-paced and full of suspense. This fantastic third installment will definitely appeal to the growing ranks of Alibi fans.” – Adrian Wills, General Manager for Alibi
The twelve episodes will star Donald Sutherland, Tom Wlaschiha and Naomi Battrick. Joining the ensemble cast for the third outing are former ER actor Goran Visnjic and Lost star Elizabeth Mitchell. Alibi premiered Crossing Lines season one and two in 2015. They both performed exceptionally well and were one of the channel’s top performing acquisitions of the year. Crossing Lines season three will be shown in Q4 this year, new to Alibi.
Crossing Lines taps into the International Criminal Court (ICC) to create a special crime unit functioning as a European FBI. They hunt down criminals and investigate crimes that span across European boarders. Set six months after the heart-stopping conclusion of season two, in which the unit’s leader, Louis Daniel, was killed, this unique, global crime drama is set for an explosive third season.
After one of his top prosecutors vanishes, Dorn (Sutherland) must reactivate the ICC team. Marco Constante (Visnjic), Carine Strand (Mitchell), Luke Wilkinson (Stuart Martin) and Ellie Delfont-Bogard (Battrick) are the new ICC team members joining Sebastian Berger (Wlaschiha) and Arabela Seeger (Lara Rossi). This reunited team of underdogs must struggle to re-establish their battered identity. With gut-wrenching drama and an emphasis on relevant and contemporary crime, this season promises to be the most ambitious yet.
“We are thrilled to continue our collaboration with Tandem and Studio Canal on season three of this stand-out crime drama, which has proved a great fit with Alibi’s slate of fantastic crime content.” – Alexandra Finlay, Head of Acquisitions and Co-Productions
