With a slate of archive series from the US and the UK, including Dr Quinn Medicine Woman, JAG, Footballers’ Wives and Playing the Field, CBS Drama bills itself as the home of modern drama classics.
The UK-based network, which is a part of a joint venture between CBS Studios International and European broadcaster Chello Zone, has further enhanced its reputation by picking up Knots Landing.
The US soap, a spin-off from the original version of Dallas (also on CBS Drama), first aired on CBS in 1979 and aired until 1993. The storyline focused on four couples living in the same cul-de-sac.
CBS Drama picked up the series in a deal with Warner Bros International Television Distribution. Knots Landing will make its debut in April.
