Professor T, a Belgian crime drama about an eccentric criminology professor who helps the police solve cases, has been running on PBS for the past few months. Professor T, a German version of the Belgian series, debuts on subscription streamer MHz Choice, tomorrow, October 1.

PBS’ Professor T, a Walter Presents import, originally ran on Belgium’s Channel 4 for 39 episodes over three seasons (2015-2018). In addition to weekly airings on PBS stations, the series is streaming over both PBS Passport, available to station members, and PBS Masterpiece, an Amazon Prime add-on channel.

MHZ’s Professor T originally ran on Germany’s ZDF for 12 episodes over three seasons (2017-2019). The streamer will drop the first two episodes of season one tomorrow and the remaining two episodes the following Tuesday, October 8. Season two will begin on Tuesday, October 22.   

Professor T has also been remade in France and the Czech Republic. Neither of those series is yet available to US viewers.
