ZDF Enterprises Comes on Board Queens of Mystery


ZDF Enterprises has picked up the worldwide distribution rights for the British drama series Queens of Mystery, representing the show outside of the English-speaking territories handled by Acorn Media International.

Acorn Media Enterprises commissioned Queens of Mystery from Sly Fox Productions in association with Ferncroft Media for Acorn TV. Created for television by writer Julian Unthank (Doc Martin, New Tricks), Queens of Mystery follows a perennially single female Detective Sergeant (Matilda Stone) and her three aunts, who are well-known crime writers helping her solve whodunit-style murders as well as set her up on blind dates.

This marks the second cooperation between ZDF Enterprises and Acorn Media Enterprises, following the distribution deal on the drama series London Kills.
