Classic detective show Van Der Valk is, as we know, getting a makeover.
Back in the 70s, the show starred Barry Foster in the title role and followed a street smart and unapologetic Dutch detective navigates the lively and enigmatic city of Amsterdam, solving mysterious crimes using astute human observation and inspired detection.
Now we know that Marc Warren is to take the lead role.
World Screen reports that ITV – the show’s original broadcaster – has picked up the UK rights.
The three-part drama is being shot in Amsterdam. The cast also includes Maimie McCoy, Luke Allen-Gale, Elliot Barnes-Worrell, Darrell D’Silva, Emma Fielding, Kees Boot, Reinout Bussemaker, Frances Grey, Daniel Lapaine, Stephanie Leonidas, Mike Libanon and Vineeta Rishi.
