USA: PBS Confirm The Escape Artist Starring David Tennant To Air From 15th June

PBS have released details of their summer 2014 line up and confirm that the tense legal thriller The Escape Artist starring David Tennant will open the MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! season on Sunday nights. Originally broadcast on BBC One in three one-hour episodes, Masterpiece will show the drama in two parts of 90 minutes each from June 15th - 22nd. The Escape Artist was written by David Wolstencroft (Spooks) and directed by Brian Welsh for the BBC. 

Sundays, June 15-22, 2014, 9:00-10:30 p.m. ET

David Tennant (“Doctor Who”) stars as a brilliant defense lawyer with a storybook family and a potent nickname, “The Escape Artist,” for his ability to spring the obviously guilty. Then he gets a trial that changes his life forever. This gripping legal thriller costars Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) as the hero’s rival, along with a courtroom full of ambitious attorneys and one very unnerving defendant.

Other UK treats for PBS viewers include the second seasons of Last Tango In Halifax and Endeavour and comedy series Vicious starring Ian McKellern and Derek Jacobi.
