Second Installment of National Treasure Picked Up in Canada


Super Channel has acquired the drama National Treasure: Kiri from all3media international.

The second installment of the dramatic series from BAFTA Award-winning Jack Thorne (National Treasure) is slated to make its Canadian broadcast premiere on March 15 at 9 p.m. Each episode will also be available on Super Channel On Demand the day after its weekly linear broadcast.

The four-parter examines the abduction of a young black girl, named Kiri, who is soon-to-be-adopted by her white foster family, and the trail of lies, blame, guilt and notoriety that follows. Sarah Lancashire (Happy Valley, Last Tango in Halifax) stars as an experienced, no-nonsense social worker who loves and believes in her job, but has a maverick and instinctive approach to protecting the children in her care.
