BritBox has announced its first global commission as BritBox UK and BritBox North America join forces to bring us Murder in Provence, a brand new crime thriller. 

The series, which is due to start filming in both the UK and France in July will mark the first global collaboration between BritBox UK and BritBox North America, and the three-part series promises to have viewers on the edges of their seats. 

Will Harrison, Managing Director BritBox UK said “We hope that Murder in Provence will be the first of many global originals made exclusively for BritBox subscribers. The books by M.L. Longworth seem to be tailor made for television and we can’t wait to launch the series next year.”

What is Murder in Provence about? 

Adapted from the books by M.L. Longworth, Murder in Provence follows Antoine Verlaque, an Investigating Judge in Aix-en-Provence, and his romantic partner Marine Bonnet as they investigate the murders, mysteries and dark underbelly of their idyllic home. Their efforts are aided by Hélène, a detective and Antoine’s trusted confidante. 

While the exact crimes the trio will be faced with are being kept under wraps for now, Alison Owen of Monumental Television has promised: "The pairing of Roger Allam and Nancy Carroll as Antoine and Marine is just delicious and promises sparring and fun as they solve crimes in one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes".
