Ben Miller starrer “Professor T” successfully premiers on France 3

The inaugural season of Professor T, starring Ben Miller and Frances de la Tour, achieved great success while debuting on France 3, drawing in an audience of over 2.68 million viewers. With its market share of 12.4%, the first episode even clearly surpassed the time slot's previous program's. The show, which the Financial Times called "as gorgeously Englisch as cream tea," has already found success in other territories, which has paved the way for an upcoming third season, due for delivery next year.

Produced by Eagle Eye Drama (Walter Iuzzolino/Jo McGrath) for ITV and PBS, Professor T (18 x 1h) centers on Jasper Tempest, a sharp yet brusque Cambridge Professor of Criminology grappling with OCD. Reluctantly assisting the major crime unit, Tempest cracks their toughest cases, is pushed beyond his comfort zone, and compelled to confront haunting demons from his past.
