ITV is remaking Belgian crime drama Professor T, starring Johnny English’s Ben Miller and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’s Frances de la Tour. The series is produced by Eagle Eye Drama, the production company set up by the founders of foreign language streaming service Walter Presents, and the order marks its first original drama commission. Based on the hit Belgian series of the same name, Professor T is set against the backdrop of Cambridge University, one of the world’s most prestigious educational institutions.
This is a romantic historical drama based on the true story of the first woman “conquistador” who went to the South American land that would become Chile, and helped to form the city of Santiago. It is based on a 2006 novel by Isabel Allende.
