The first European deals for cop and canine drama “Hudson & Rex” are rolling in ahead of the show getting its official international premiere at MipTV in Cannes. The show is the English-language remake of a Europe-originated procedural about a detective and his German Shepherd sidekick, Rex. Italian pubcaster Rai has bought the Canada-produced version, having aired the original European version for several seasons.
The North American show was for CityTV in Canada. It stars John Reardon (“Van Helsing”) as detective Charlie Hudson and Mayko Nguyen (“Cracked”) as his human partner Sarah Truong. Enrico Colantoni (“Flashpoint”) also stars.
