MRS SIDHU INVESTIGATES: DRAMA SERIES ACQUIRED BY UKTV

Based on the popular BBC Radio 4 series of the same name, the (4x90’) series is created and written by Suk Pannu (The Kumars at No. 42).



Mrs Sidhu Investigates finds Mrs Sidhu (Meera Syal CBE FRSL - The Kumars at No. 42), a recently widowed, high-end caterer with a taste for crime, solving murders and other investigations amongst the affluent residents of Berkshire.



She uses a lifetime as an ‘Indian Auntie’ to sharpen her skills as an investigator, whilst juggling her new catering business and wrangling with her wayward son Tez (Gurjeet Singh - Ackley Bridge).


She forms an unofficial partnership with world weary police officer, DCI Burton (Craig Parkinson – Line of Duty), much to the amusement of his official partner DS Mint (Naana Agyei-Ampadu – Death in Paradise).



Melanie Rumani, global head of acquisitions at BBC Studios and UKTV said: “It’s brilliant to see our portfolio on Drama, Alibi and UKTV Play, as well as BBC Studios’ owned BBC First in Benelux, continue to grow with these fantastic new additions.”


“The BBC has been a longstanding valued partner of ours and we are excited by this new chapter in our relationship,” said Mike Pears, EVP of distribution and content sales for AMC Networks. “Both in the U.S. and around the world, we want to make our shows available on a wide variety of platforms, to find new viewers and build awareness of the high-quality content that continues to define our company.”



Mrs Sidhu Investigates will premiere on UKTV Drama channel.
