ZDF, Mediawan & RTÉ Board Harry Wild


ZDF, Mediawan and RTÉ are joining Dynamic Television’s Irish murder mystery series for Acorn TV: Harry Wild, starring Jane Seymour.

ZDF has come on board as a co-producer for the 8×1-hour series. Mediawan is prebuying the series for French-speaking Europe, and RTÉ has signed on as the Irish broadcaster.

The drama is produced and distributed by Dynamic Television and was commissioned by AMC Networks’ Acorn TV. Harry Wild stars Seymour (The Kominsky Method; Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman) as a recently retired English professor who discovers a real knack for investigation and cannot help but interfere with the cases assigned to her police detective son.

Harry Wild is slated to premiere in early 2022.

Simone Emmelius, senior VP of international fiction at ZDF, said: “We are looking forward to presenting Harry Wild to our audience, an entertaining series with smart criminal cases. This co-production has gathered fantastic talent with Mediawan, Dynamic and RTÉ. We are very proud of our wonderful team, which is more than capable of letting the great Jane Seymour shine.”

Daniel March and Klaus Zimmermann, managing partners at Dynamic Television, commented: “We are grateful to once again have the confidence from our trusted partners in ZDF, Mediawan and RTÉ. Their commitment to Harry Wild is a testament to Jane and a talented group of actors, to great scripts, and to a best-in-class production team. We couldn’t be more excited.”

Valérie Vleeschhouwer, managing director of Mediawan Rights, said: “We are delighted to support this ambitious crime show starring Jane Seymour and to share this great adventure with talented partners as Dynamic Television, ZDF and RTÉ.”
