Program Partners Snags New Procedural


Program Partners, in tandem with Canadian distributor Thunderbird Films, is picking up another show from Chris Haddock, the man behind Da Vinci's Inquest.

That off-Canadian TV syndicated hour procedural drama has proven a big hit for Program Partners this season. It is cleared in 98% of the country for season two.

The new acquisition is also a procedural drama, Intelligence, about the interplay between a crime boss and the law enfrocement officers trying to bring him down.

The series is slated to launch in fall 2006 on the CBC.

Program Partners also distributes a two-hour block of syndicated cop shows, Crime Watch, consisting of Cold Squad and Stone Undercover, which is cleared in 90% of the country for a fall 2006 launch.
