CHANNEL 5 ACQUIRE 'DEPARTURE' FOR 5Star AND My5

Channel 5 have acquired Canadian drama Departure (6x45') for 5Star and My5.



The series, which stars Archie Panjabi and Christopher Plummer, follows a top team of investigators, who are tasked with unravelling the mysteries behind a series of shocking air, sea and land disasters.


Red Arrow Studios' Tim Gerhartz said: "As a premium international series, which is packed with action and fronted by an all-star cast, Departure is ideally positioned to expand Channel 5’s drama offering and provide a standout moment in the broadcaster’s schedule. Also, with the show’s eagerly anticipated second season debuting later this year, it’s great to welcome a raft of new partners to the series."
