"FOYLE" IN A NEW ERA

New episodes coming to "MASTERPIECE MYSTERY!" on PBS in summer 2013

Boston, MA, September 12, 2012 - Acorn Media, MASTERPIECE/WGBH, ITV and Eleventh Hour Films have released the first images from the set of the new series of Foyle's War. The three new episodes will air as part of the MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! season on PBS in summer of 2013.

"World War II may be over, but Christopher Foyle's war against injustice and wrong-doing rages on," says MASTERPIECE executive producer Rebecca Eaton. "His very loyal American fans will be thrilled."

Starring Michael Kitchen and Honeysuckle Weeks and created by celebrated novelist and screenwriter Anthony Horowitz, the series will see Foyle and loyal friend Sam (Weeks) in a new post-war era as their worlds shift into those of MI5.

With many stories based on real life cases, Foyle will focus his attention on the world of espionage as he gathers secret intelligence in support of Britain's security, defense and the Government's foreign and economic policies.

In his new role as a Senior Intelligence Officer, Foyle discovers that the British establishment is rife with communist sympathisers and traitors. In this delicately balanced period in history, 1946-47, Foyle will use all his intelligence, guile and intuition to keep the country safe.

Meanwhile, Sam is happily married to local MP Adam and finding her feet as a wife with a daunting role in local politics. Reunited with Foyle, she is also offered a surprising new working role.

Three x 120 minute films have been ordered from Eleventh Hour Films, the production company founded by producer Jill Green.

MASTERPIECE on PBS has been airing Foyle's War since 2004. Acorn Media purchased Foyle's War in November 2010 and worked closely with producer Jill Green and creator/writer Anthony Horowitz to develop new episodes. Acorn Media has been releasing Foyle's War on home video in North America since 2003. The DVDs presenting Series 1 and 2 of the series are Acorn Media U.S.'s top two best-selling DVDs of all time.

MASTERPIECE on PBS is presented by WGBH Boston. Rebecca Eaton is executive producer. Funding for MASTERPIECE is provided by Viking River Cruises and Ralph Lauren Corporation with additional support from public television viewers and contributors to The MASTERPIECE Trust, created to help ensure the series' future. pbs.org/masterpiece
