The show from producers Tandem Communications and Bernero Productions is a co-production with TF1 Production/TF1 Network and was commissioned by Sony Pictures Television Networks.

NBC said it will air 10 episodes of the series beginning this summer.

"We're making scripted projects a priority for our summer lineup, and this is a great fit," said Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment. "The special unit of 'Crossing Lines' brings global criminals to justice with the help of the International Criminal Court. We have every reason to believe that our viewers will enjoy these compelling and well-told stories."

"Fans of procedural crime shows will feel very much at home with 'Crossing Lines' and adopt its team of characters as their new family," said producer Edward AllenBernero, who previously was an executive producer on NBC's long-running drama "Third Watch." "I couldn't be more pleased to come home to NBC, which recognized the show's potential."
