Britbox in the US and Canada will air family thriller The Inheritance after its launch last year on the UK’s Channel 5.

RTE in Ireland, NPO in the Netherlands, and Pickbox in Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Serbia, North Macedonia, Montenegro and Bulgaria have also acquired the four-part drama from distributor Eccho Rights.

Channel 5’s number one rated series in 2023, it tells the story of three siblings, Daniel, Sian and Chloe, who are left reeling after the unexpected death of their father, Dennis. When it turns out they are not left anything in his will, they embark on a dangerous journey to figure out whether his death was truly a tragic accident, or whether it was murder.

It stars Robert James Collier (Downton Abbey), Gaynor Faye (Coronation Street) and Jemima Rooper (The Girlfriend Experience), with Larry Lamb (EastEnders), Kevin Whately (Inspector Lewis) and Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey).

The Inheritance is a Night Train Media, Lonesome Pine Productions and Peer Pressure coproduction.
