Annika arrives on PBS Passport and the PBS MASTERPIECE Prime Video Channel on 17 April, 2022!
Annika’s six suspenseful episodes will have a special premiere on PBS Passport and the PBS MASTERPIECE Prime Video Channel on 17 April, 2022. The series will have its US television broadcast in Fall 2022.
A police procedural with wit, Annika has already delighted critics in the UK. “The dialogue is so droll and the performances so charming I’m in for what fisherfolk call the long haul,” enthused the reviewer for The Guardian and The Times offered this praise, “Annika allows Walker to let loose a warm sense of humor.”
MASTERPIECE Executive Producer Susanne Simpson said, “Annika is a terrifically complicated, funny, one-of-a kind character brought brilliantly to life by Nicola Walker. Fans of Unforgotten and Last Tango in Halifax have a lot to look forward to in Annika.”
Arabella Page Croft, producer for Black Camel Pictures says, “I am absolutely delighted to see this hit Scottish show arrive stateside! We are thrilled to bring our irrepressible marine homicide squad chief Annika, played by the amazing Nicola Walker, to a new audience who we hope will delight in her literary life-musings and crime-solving prowess as much as the UK audience have loved it.”
