The Bridge returns for its final crossing

Saga and Henrik return for the concluding installment of the smash hit Scandinavian series, this time airing on BBC Two. The final series of the critically acclaimed hit Swedish/Danish language drama The Bridge will air on the BBC in 2018, it was announced today. The series – which is BBC Four’s highest ever rating drama – was acquired from ZDF Enterprises and will air next year, this time on BBC Two. Sofia Helin and Thure Lindhart reprise their roles as the iconic Saga and her innately talented Danish partner, Henrik, in a heartstopping concluding case that tests their very special relationship to its limits both professionally and personally. Anders Landstrom, producer

of The Bridge, says: “It is obviously very sad to say goodbye to Saga after four incredible seasons, but our talented writers, Hans and Camilla have an extraordinary end in store for viewers. Sofia has played the role of Saga with a rawness and truth rarely seen on screen and it’s been a pleasure to work with her, and Thure on a series of which we are immensely proud.” Patrick Holland, Channel Controller of BBC Two says: “It is great to see this fantastic series back and on BBC Two. The Bridge has helped redefine television drama in recent years and it is fitting that its final series will be showcased on BBC Two.” The Bridge proved a breakout hit in Scandinavia, with the previous series being The Bridge’s highest rated yet.

What Would Your Kid Do? ITV announce new show fronted by Jason Manford

Jason Manford is to host a brand new factual entertainment format, What Would Your Kid Do? for ITV. The series will find out just how well the nation really knows their kids by challenging parents to guess how their children will behave in a variety of situations. Merging specialist factual child development psychology with an entertaining gameshow mechanic, the show will be produced by Cardiff based indie Boomerang. Each show will see children filmed in a real world setting – they’ll think it’s just another day at school, unaware they'll go through a number

of tasks that will explore everything from curiosity to lateral thinking, risk taking to rule breaking. As the situations unfold, Jason will observe alongside the parents as they try to predict what their child will do in each situation, providing a fascinating and often hilariously telling insight into the minds of children - he’ll also have a few surprises up his sleeve that will see him join the children in their world. At the end of the show the parents who have shown they know their child the best and correctly predicted their behaviour will play for a family prize alongside their child.

Paul Abbott's NO OFFENCE 3 starts shooting

The third series of Paul Abbott‘s award-winning Channel 4 series NO OFFENCE starts shooting on location in Manchester. The brilliant and unbreakable crime fighting family of Friday Street coppers return with 6 brand new episodes. The extremities of DI Viv Deering’s (Joanna Scanlan) world are governed, not only by thugs, but politicians. Same goes for all of us. In our crowded world, enemies can be almost invisible. Deering and her team adopt equally covert tactics to expose a few bare-faced truths. Paul Abbott says: “Series 3 is about the void left by political parties, clusters of ignorance streamlined in to soldier ants. Whether it’s a real

or perceived void doesn’t matter. Predators will always exploit a weakness. Viv Deering really earns her wages in making her voice heard to diverse cultural factions.” The fabulous three return: “let’s not pigeon shit all over the facts” Deering, impulsive DC Dinah Kowalska and astute DS Joy Freers. At their sides in the crumbling Friday Street cop-shop are the adrenaline fuelled team: moral compass DC Spike Tanner, genius Miller; and the uniforms big hearted Jonah, switched on Stuart, force of nature Tegan and gentle office manager Gavin. Swooping in to micromanage the Friday Street team is the sharp new Superintendent Marilyn Merchant.
