Acorn Comes On Board for Final George Gently Season


Acorn Media Enterprises has partnered with all3media International as the North American co-producer of the final chapter of the long-running hit British detective drama George Gently.

Currently in production, season eight will feature two TV movies, entitled “Gently Liberated” and “Gently and the New Age.” Shortly after their BBC One broadcast, the episodes will make their U.S. premiere as an Acorn TV original on the U.S. SVOD service Acorn TV.

Shane Murphy, the managing director of Acorn Media Enterprises, said, “After releasing several critically acclaimed and popular Acorn TV originals, we’re excited to add one of our top franchises to our rapidly growing list of first-rate co-productions. George Gently has remained a favorite among our subscribers, so we eagerly jumped at the chance to co-produce the final episodes along with our friends at all3media International. EDGAR-winning writer Peter Flannery continues to deliver intriguing mysteries alongside superb performances from Martin Shaw and Lee Ingleby.”
