SIGNORA VOLPE: EMILIA FOX DRAMA SERIES ACQUIRED BY UKTV
Emilia Fox (Silent Witness) leads the cast in Signora Volpe (3x90’) and plays Sylvia Fox, a disillusioned British spy-turned-detective who starts a new life in the beautiful heart of Italy, but soon finds out trouble follows her wherever she goes.
Series 1 sees Sylvia in Italy for her niece’s wedding when the groom goes missing. Sylvia solves the mystery and, longing to reconnect with her sister (Tara Fitzgerald – Game of Thrones), decides to start anew in Umbria.
Soon she’s tackling other cases and winning over a handsome local cop (Giovanni Cirfiera – Ford vs Ferrari), even as her ex-husband/ex-colleague (Jamie Bamber – Beyond Paradise) tries to lure her back.
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.”
Series 1 of Signora Volpe will premiere on UKTV Drama channel.
