Endemol Shine China will collaborate with Blue & White & Red Pictures and Cloudwood, to create a Mandarin-language adaptation of Broadchurch.
This marks the second scripted adaptation deal for Endemol Shine China this year, following plans for a local language version of Humans.
William Tan, Managing Director of Endemol Shine China says: “There is an ever growing appetite for high-end drama across China and we are delighted to partner with both Blue&White&Red Pictures and Cloudwood to continue leading the way with Broadchurch. We believe that the series will provide a hugely compelling and exciting offering for viewers alongside Humans China in 2019.”
It follows a US adaptation with original star David Tennant and featuring Aussie Jacki Weaver.
