Acorn Media acquired the rights to Foyle’s War earlier this year and the first episodes of the Acorn era are set to air on PBS Masterpiece Theatre next summer. Michael Kitchen returns to play the title character who is now focusing his attentions on espionage. The new series is set just after the end of World War II, and Foyle is doing his bit to detect and prevent communist infiltration in the UK. Honeysuckle Weeks, Tim McMullen, Ellie Haddington and Daniel Weyman are among the other big name actors who are set to appear in the three two-hour long stories.
Downton Abbey’s Rebecca Eaton is executive producer and she is setting expectations high by claiming that “loyal American fans will be thrilled.” Eleventh Hour Films are producing the drama for PBS and fans can whet their appetites by taking in Foyle’s past adventures which are available on Acorn DVD.
