Broadchurch and Lucan

TV has announced that it is to field drama heavyweights Broadchurch and Lucan to tempt Sky viewers into subscribing to its new pay-TV channel, ITV Encore.

ITV director of television, Peter Fincham, said: “Drama is a genre that we know audiences love and we have worked with some fantastic talent, both on and off screen, to build a really strong stable of series and serials over the years. ITV Encore will give viewers the opportunity to revisit, or indeed discover, a wealth of ITV drama from recent times.”

Other shows to grace the station include Mrs Biggs, The Ice Cream Girls, Whitechapel and DCI Banks.
