SKY NEWS: John Nettles - Bergerac
THE programme, which ran for nine series from 1981 until 1991, starred John Nettles as detective sergeant Jim Bergerac who later became a private investigator. Based on the island of Jersey, the BBC show is being revived by Artists Studio, backed by Endemol Shine UK and Jersey-based Westward Studios.
They are presenting it as a commission for Paramount Network International’s channels outside the US. However, there has been no indication as to who will play the famous detective.
Nettles himself went onto play a police detective in another crime show, Midsomer Murders The Bergerac remake will be updated for the modern day, with “contemporary stories of the week” and a “strong serial spine”, said Gub Neal, Artists Studio’s executive producer.
