Lovefilm signs exclusive deal for NBC drama Crossing Lines

Amazon-owned video-on-demand service Lovefilm has taken exclusive rights to NBC crime-drama Crossing Lines in the UK. 

The show, which was produced by Studiocanal-owned Tandem Communications and Bernero Productions, will be available to stream in the UK from October 25.

The entire first season, which debuted on NBC in the US in June but has not appeared on linear TV in the UK, will be available on Lovefilm at the same time.

The video service said that Crossing Lines season two, which recently went into production, will also be available exclusively on Lovefilm in the UK at a future, as-yet unspecified date.

“Today is another milestone moment in Lovefilm’s history as we take our next step into bringing new and previously unseen premium TV series to UK audiences. Knowing how much our members enjoy Criminal Minds, we are incredibly excited to become the exclusive home of Crossing Lines in the UK, and we think our TV fans are going to be completely captivated by this European police drama,” said Chris Bird, director of content strategy at Lovefilm.
