EL SEGUNDO, Calif., June 15, 2017— AT&T* AUDIENCE Network and global independent studio Entertainment One (eOne) have brought on Ed Bernero ("Criminal Minds," "Third Watch," and "Crossing Lines") to serve as showrunner for season 2 of the high-impact, serialized crime drama "ICE."
The AT&T AUDIENCE Network original series follows the Green family as they plunge into the underbelly of the Los Angeles diamond trade.
"Ed is an industry veteran who has worked on some of the most popular crime dramas on TV," said Christopher Long, head of AT&T AUDIENCE Network. "We're excited to bring him on and look forward to seeing how he drives and develops the storyline that ended with a cliffhanger in season 1."
"I am extremely excited to be joining the ICE team for Season 2. AUDIENCE Network and eOne have put together an impressive show with an amazing international cast and a compelling, wide-ranging world that hasn't really been explored on television," said Bernero. "I can't wait to get to work."
"ICE" builds on AT&T's relationship with eOne, which controls the international rights to the series and serves as the studio on AUDIENCE Network's dynamic series "YOU ME HER" and long-running drama "ROGUE."
"We are thrilled with the reception of ICE's first season and excited to continue our relationship with AUDIENCE Network on this standout series," said John Morayniss, CEO, eOne Television. "Bringing on an experienced showrunner like Ed will only heighten the action-packed drama and continue to build the fan base for ICE."
AUDIENCE Network offers a compelling lineup of original, provocative content. Its growing slate of critically acclaimed original series includes:
- MMA drama "KINGDOM," starring Frank Grillo and Nick Jonas.
- Poly-romantic comedy "YOU ME HER," starring Greg Poehler, Rachel Blanchard and Priscilla Faia.
