Quirky Belgium Crime Drama PROFESSOR T Airing on WOUB Beginning June 23, 2019


PBS Distribution proudly announces the second international drama series from Walter’s Choice – PROFESSOR T, which will begin airing on WOUB Sunday, June 23, 2019 at 10:30 pm.

Bill Young, Vice President, Television Programming, KERA comments “With viewers really responding to MODUS, the first drama from Walter, they will now have the opportunity to follow it up with PROFESSOR T, continuing to solidify our on-going efforts to showcase quality international drama to our audience.”

Fans of “Monk” and “House” will enjoy watching the eccentrically gifted professor, Professor T*, unravel complex criminal puzzles for the police with his brilliant mind.  The show’s namesake character is an esteemed criminologist at Antwerp University. He inspires scores of students with his punchy teaching techniques. However, outside the lecture hall, he is haunted by a plethora of neuroses that hold him back from getting close to people – he quite literally protects himself from the outside world in a shroud of anti-bacterial spray and latex gloves.  Despite this, the Antwerp Homicide Department relies on him and his team for expert advice.

Season 1 of the 13-episode detective drama won numerous awards including the prestigious Jury Special Prize for Foreign Fiction at the Festival de la Fiction TV, La Rochelle. The Telegraph praised Professor T, calling it “engagingly off-kilter, a mix of grim storylines and jaunty character.”

Walter Iuzzolino, curator of the Walter’s Choice programming, said, “Prepare to be charmed by TV’s rudest crime fighter. Professor T is completely original and utterly brilliant – one of my all-time favorite TV crime series.”

PROFESSOR T is in Flemish with English subtitles.


Walter’s Choice is a carefully curated series of foreign language drama selected for PBS audiences by PBS Distribution, PBS and Walter Presents.


Walter Presents launched in January 2016 in the U.K. as a video-on-demand service and is a joint venture between Channel 4 and Global Series Network, founded by Jason Thorp, Walter Iuzzolino and Jo McGrath. Dedicated to showcasing award-winning foreign language drama, the service is named after its curator, Walter Iuzzolino, a passionate drama fan. In March 2017, Walter Presents launched as an SVOD platform in the U.S., with the New York Times hailing it as a “chic TV boutique with a foreign accent.” In November 2017, Walter Presents launched in Australia through pay TV service Foxtel, and in Italy in September 2018, it launched its first roll-out in mainland Europe on Discovery’s Nove, Giallo and Dplay channels. In October 2018, Walter Presents partnered with PBS Distribution to launch over 300 hours of quality foreign language drama on the MASTERPIECE Prime Video Channel.
