Granite Harbour sells to new territories
 Eccho Rights has closed a number of deals for the crime drama Granite Harbour, which recently aired its second season on BBC Scotland, BBC One, and iPlayer.

BBC Studios have licensed the series for BBC First in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Poland. TV2 Denmark and TV2 Hungary have also picked up the Aberdeen-set crime series. BritBox International in the US and Canada, and Acorn TV in Australia and New Zealand, have previously acquired the series, with their deals extending to both seasons.

 "The series represents what global audiences love about British drama; a thrilling crime story underpinned by a strong sense of humour and warmth,” says Lucy Roberts, Director of Sales, Nordics and English-speaking world.

The second season of the series sees the return of DC Davis Lindo (Romario Simpson) and his colleagues to familiar surroundings in Aberdeen, with even higher stakes as a new crime wave sweeps the city. Meanwhile, Lindo’s personal journey to acceptance in Aberdeen and among his colleagues faces a new challenge when a visitor from home arrives. Dawn Steele (Shetland), Hanna Donaldson (Annika), and Bhav Joshi (The Diplomat) all return for season two.

The second season scored impressive ratings for BBC Scotland, with the premiere increasing the broadcaster’s average share by more than 175%, as well as receiving plaudits from numerous television critics and publications that nominated the series as a must-watch title for the week.

The series is produced by LA Productions, in association with Dopamine and Eccho Rights, a part of Night Train Media Group.
