All3Media International closed several new deals with networks and OTTs for the broadcasting of Two Brothers Pictures' detective series Baptiste, including Starz in Latin America, Germany, France, Italy; BBC Studios ANZ for Australia and BBC Studios Asia and for BBC First, the premium SVOD service of BBC dramas; Masterpiece in North America, and Sky New Zealand, ahead of its second season premiere on BBC One.
After a first season set in Amsterdam, the second will see Tchéky Karyo (The Missing) reprise his role as retired detective Julien Baptiste for a new case set in Budapest. Fiona Shaw (Killing Eve, Fleabag) joins the cast, while Anastasia Hille (Keeping faith, The Fear) returns as Celia Baptiste.
“It's fantastic to see so many broadcasters continue their commitment to Baptiste as we await the long-awaited second season. Since his debut as the insightful but stubborn investigator Julien Baptiste in Two Brothers Pictures' The Missing, Tchéky Karyo has created an iconic and complex character that has captivated audiences around the world. With the equally fascinating Fiona Shaw joining the cast and a twist-laden new investigation devised by acclaimed writers Harry and Jack Williams, season two promises to deliver another masterclass in the gripping detective drama," said Maartje Horchner, Executive VP of Content at All3Media.
