MIPTV News: DCD plots Murder in Cannes

DCD is launching a new murder mystery series about a husband and wife team of crime scene cleaners at MIPTV.

Mr & Mrs Murder is a 13x60mins series produced by FremantleMedia Australia and Bravado Productions.

In Australia it is on Network Ten. It started airing on the free-to-air network in February with the launch episode second overall in its timeslot on the night.

Shaun Micallef (Dogstar) and Kat Stewart (Underbelly) star as the husband and wife team, which was described by one local paper as ‘Australia’s Elementary’.

DCD has notched recent successes selling Australian drama into international markets.

Nicky Davies Williams, CEO, DCD Rights, said: “This is a high quality high rated contemporary drama in the vein of those that successfully sold around the world last year including award winning The Slap, The Straits, The Strange Calls, A Moody Christmas and Rake”.
