UKTV today announces that Alibi has secured rights to the UK broadcast debut of hit buddy-cop drama series Pretty Hard Cases.
Starring Meredith MacNeill (Baroness von Sketch Show) and Adrienne C. Moore (Orange is the New Black), the fun, action-packed and irreverent series chronicles the two vastly different female detectives who are at the top of their respective games.
Set in Toronto, Pretty Hard Cases follows Guns and Gangs Detective Sam Wazowski (MacNeill) and Drug Squad Detective Kelly Duff (Moore), where it's not until their chance meeting during a takedown that Sam and Kelly realise they're going after the same target.
By day, they are heroes in their own particular way: skilled, tough, determined, and entertaining, fighting to do good in a broken system. But by night, they're both grappling with loneliness, dysfunctional families and turbulent love lives. Their friendship could help to balance each other out if only they didn't drive one another utterly insane.
Charlie Charalambous, UKTV's global acquisitions manager, commented: "To be working with NBCUniversal on this exciting new series is fantastic. The series features widely celebrated talent and is a welcome addition to our UKTV Originals and British dramas that have performed brilliantly this year"
Emma Ayech, Alibi channel director, added: "Over the last year the US shows featured on Alibi have been outstanding, so it's great to be adding the hilarious and hard-hitting Pretty Hard Cases to the 2022 slate"
Pretty Hard Cases will air on Alibi on the 19th of January 2022.
