Mipcom: Channel 5 procedural drama Suspects is to be remade for German network RTL.

The detective franchise, devised by Paul Marquess, MD of FremantleMedia UK’s Newman Street, will be produced by UFA Serial Drama.

The deal was struck by FremantleMedia.

Guido Reinhardt, Executive Producer, UFA Serial Drama said, “I’m a huge fan of the UK original: it combines the realism of documentary filming with great dramatic tension; intense action sequences with compelling storylines. It’s an extraordinary piece of work and I can’t wait to introduce a local version to German audiences.”

Suspects first launched in the UK on Channel 5 in February 2014.
