British television is making it across the pond in far more apparent ways than it used to. On Friday, The BBC announced it was picking up The Fall, a brand new crime series set in Northern Ireland, which follows a police officer investigating a string of murders. This is good news for anyone with Netflix, as well. Following The BBCs release of the series in the UK on May 13, all five episodes of The Fall will be available on the streaming service beginning on May 28.

Its awesome that the series inked out a Netflix deal. Murder mysteries translate well on both sides of the pond, and there should be enough familiar faces in The Fall to intrigue fans. The X-Files Gillian Anderson is signed on to star in the pilot, and according to Deadline, several other famous faces are also in the series, including Jamie Dornan, who played Sheriff Graham in Once Upon a Time, and Archie Panjabi, who plays Kalinda on CBS The Good Wife.

As evidenced by our Ten 90s TV Stars We Want To See Back In A Starring Role On Television column, Gillian Anderson still has a slew of fans stemming from her X-Files years. A lot of us would love to see her back in a leading role on TV, and shell get a shot with The Fall. Back in the States, Anderson is currently set for a recurring role on Hannibal and shes signed on for a Rand Ravich pilot over at NBC, should it go to series. Unlike the Ravich pilot, the good news is, at least we know for sure that The Fall will air.
