UK-headquartered ITN Productions has landed its first commission with multichannel operator UKTV in the form of the 10-episode obs-doc series, Fast Justice.
Commissioned for UKTV by Hilary Rosen, head of factual and factual entertainment, and ordered by Luke Hales and Steve North, directors for the group’s entertainment channel, Dave, the series follows “The Sentinels” — a group of elite officers from the Suffolk police force, outfitted with customized BMWs and automatic plate recognition technology that helps them snare criminals operating within drug trafficking, human trafficking and other serious crimes.
“We’re with the Sentinels every step of the way as they target, hunt down and arrest some of the UK’s most wanted criminals,” said ITN executive producer Will Smith in a statement. “With fixed-rigs in their high speed pursuit cars and filming at their intelligence hub, viewers will get a front-row seat as the drama unfolds.”
“It’s great to be working on our first commission with ITN Productions,” added UKTV’s Hilary Rosen. “The team there has gained hard-won access to a new way of policing crime hot spots and chasing down criminals driving crimewaves. Fast Justice promises to be an eye-opening and high octane series.”
The series is executive produced for ITN Productions by Charlie Clay and Will Smith. DCD Rights will be distributing the series internationally.
