Red Arrow Studios International has detailed a slate across scripted, formats and factual entertainment programming heading to London Screenings next week.

Leading the company’s scripted offering are two new German serial dramas: The Country Doctor (60 x 30-minutes), produced by Filmpool for SAT.1/Joyn in Germany, which sees Dr Sarah König finding a fresh start for herself and teenage daughter in a picturesque Bavarian village. Meanwhile, Coastal Police (80 x 30-minutes), follows detective superintendent Harry Stein as he makes waves in his small coastal town. The series was produced by Pyjama Pictures, also for SAT.1/Joyn.

Other scripted titles include three dramas from Finnish producer Yellow Film & TV. Tragic drama series Forgiven (4 x 60-minutes), based on Laura Manninen’s bestselling novel Kaikki Anteeksi, and the multi-season legal drama The Laws Of Man (S1-2: 16 x 60-minutes; S3 commissioned), set in and around courtrooms and law offices in Helsinki, which were both originally commissioned by Elisa Viihde.

Meanwhile, crime drama 66 North Precinct (8 x 60-minutes), follows former world champion boxer turned detective inspector Maria Pudas as she solves cases in the unforgiving yet beautiful landscape of Lapland. The series is produced for Finnish public broadcaster YLE and a second season is already in the works.

On the unscripted side, Red Arrow Studios International is also bringing adventure format Reality Backpackers, created by Cheerio Entertainment for Joyn, to the market, as well as season 11 of Married At First Sight Australia (38 x 90-minutes), which is produced by Endemol Shine Australia for Nine Network.
