Channel 5 acquires ABC’s Betrayal

UK broadcaster Channel 5 has acquired upcoming ABC scripted series Betrayal from Disney UK & Ireland.

The ABC Studios-produced show, set in Chicago, follows a photographer and an attorney who strike up an affair after a chance meeting but find themselves on opposing sides of a murder case.

It will launch in the UK this autumn soon after its US debut.

Katie Keenan, Channel 5’s head of acquisitions said: “We have high hopes for Betrayal becoming an unmissable drama event for Channel 5 viewers. The themes of sex, love, loyalty and treachery all combine to make this a compelling and gripping drama.”

The deal also include the final season of ABC Studios’ medical drama Body of Proof.
