Channel 4 arrives at Berlin Station

Paramount Pictures Worldwide Television Licensing & Distribution has sold popular drama, Berlin Station, to Channel 4.

Berlin Station is a contemporary spy story starring Richard Jenkins and Richard Armitage, and will debut on UK screens this autumn following a successful season in the US on Epix.

The show, which is produced by Paramount TV and Anonymous Content, centres on CIA operatives working across the world to assess terror threats and navigate the murky world of international geopolitics.

Since airing in the US, Paramount has sold it to over 150 countries, including Spain, Australia, Canada, Latin America, German-speaking Europe, France, Poland, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, New Zealand, the Middle East, Israel, Central Eastern Europe, Africa, Greece, Iceland and Turkey.

Early reviews were positive, with the New York Times saying, “Overall, on the spy-show spectrum, “Berlin Station” sits somewhere between the angst and high polish of “Homeland” and the cotton-candy escapism of “Covert Affairs.”

Channel 4 has bought the free-to-air and non-linear rights to the show, which is currently in production of its third season in Hungary.
