Parthenon Entertainment has sold its children’s BBC drama series Roman Mysteries to German public broadcaster ARD. The deal, which was brokered via Telepool, sees the German public broadcaster acquire the first series (10 x 30’ HD), with an option to acquire the second.



ARD will broadcast Roman Mysteries in its kid’s slot, which airs on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The series will also air on the ARD/ZDF owned German children’s channel KI.KA on Saturday afternoons.



Commissioned by the BBC and produced by UK production company The Little Entertainment Group (LEG), Roman Mysteries follows four friends – Flavia, Nubia, Jonathan and Lupus – as they struggle to live through one of history’s most turbulent times. Each episode deals with issues of prejudice, violence and the environment, wrapped up in riveting stories of mystery and suspense.



Budgeted at £10 million for both series, Roman Mysteries is the BBC’s largest ever children’s drama commission.
