A+E Networks Signs on for More Miss Scarlet and the Duke


A+E Networks Global Content Sales has been appointed to distribute seasons two and three of Miss Scarlet and the Duke in key markets worldwide (excluding the U.S., U.K., Ireland, English-speaking Canada, Africa and Benelux).

Season three of the detective drama set in 19th-century London is slated to premiere in the U.S. on Masterpiece on PBS in January 2023. The series centers on a fearless, independent heroine, played by Kate Phillips (Peaky Blinders), who has always been more interested in running her late father’s detective agency than behaving like a proper lady.

“A+E Networks is thrilled to be the global distributor of Miss Scarlet and the Duke, the series that launched our thriving international scripted co-production business,” said Patrick Vien, group managing director of A+E International. “We’re always on the lookout for projects that boast rich storytelling, a strong, diverse cast, the potential for repeat seasons and the chance to work with phenomenal production partners. Miss Scarlet checks off all of these boxes for us, and we’re more than confident that our partners around the world will find a passionate audience.”

Miss Scarlet and the Duke is a fantastic series, and we are excited to bring the newest seasons to fans around the world,” said Andrea Downing, president of PBS Distribution.
