C4 looks to cop shows

Channel 4 are hoping to tread a well-worn path to drama success with a new raft of cop shows, according to an interview with head of drama John Yorke in MediaGuardian (free registration required).

"I don't think there has ever been a homegrown cop show on Channel 4. But I want to see if we can find a Channel 4 take on it, reinvent the genre. We've got a small shortlist, we're developing three or four shows," [Yorke] said.

People may say, 'Oh god, not another cop show'. But if you take that attitude, you'll never get another Hill Street Blues or Cracker," Mr Yorke added.
