The Austrian buddy copshow with Tobias Moretti and the German Shepherd in the leading roles has also got a new Canadian edition after an Italian one: “Hudson & Rex” will soon be shown on this side of the pond on free TV.
The name Reginald von Ravenhorst probably doesn’t say anything to most TV viewers. As soon as the nickname “Rex” falls and a magnificent German shepherd comes through a pane of glass to help Tobias Moretti alias Commissioner Richard Moser out of trouble, everyone knows again. At least if he occasionally switched on the television in the years around the turn of the millennium: “Commissioner Rex” has long been present in Germany as a successful Austrian TV format and was shot from 1994 to 2004. Some of the “Inglourious Basterds” star Gedeon Burkhard may still be known as a successor to Moretti alongside Rex.
Between 2007 and 2015 there was a new edition in Italian – appropriately with a change of location from Vienna to Rome. But that’s not all: last year “Hudson & Rex”, the Canadian version of the cross-species team of investigators, arrived on the TNT series in pay TV – and is now coming ServusTV to free TV:
From the August 7th the series is running, the setting of which is now located in remote Newfoundland, every Friday at 8.15 p.m. in double sequences
