Maigret: French Mystery Series on MHz WORLDVIEW.
The series will feature introductions by Michael Jeck, MHz's nationally recognized film critic. "George Simenon's Maigret is the most-famous detective in the world except for Sherlock Holmes," says Jeck, former sole programmer at the American Film Institute's Theatre in Washington, D.C. and a frequent contributor to Film Forum 2. Maigret will actually be going head-to-head with Sherlock Holmes, a Russian version of Sherlock Holmes, on MHz WORLDVIEW's International Mysteries block in May. MHz's experience with the international mysteries genre has been very successful on its Washington, D.C. stations, with a large following of passionate fans. "We're really tickled to introduce Maigret to the larger American audience," says Frederick Thomas, "His literary following is legendary and this TV series is equally addictive. Viewers will love these programs."
