08/02/2019 News Team

Classic British TV show Bergerac is set for a reboot almost 30 years after it last aired.

The cult detective show – starring John Nettles and set in Jersey – ran for nine series from 1981 to 1991 on the BBC and followed the adventures of policemen (and later private detective) Jim Bergerac.

The show is being revived by Artists Studio, backed by Endemol Shine UK, and Westward Studios and is set to air on the Paramount Network (UK).

Emmy winner Gub Neal, an executive producer at Artists Studio who worked on programmes including Cracker and Prime Suspect, said the show will have  “a strong serial spine” and would focus on "contemporary stories"

Jill Offman, executive vice president at Paramount Network, added: “We have several exciting dramas in development, one of which is the classic favourite Bergerac. Our hope is that we will be able to commission Bergerac as a full series for Paramount Network International.”
