Five takes 'Mentalist' from WBIT

Simon Baker stars in psychic crime procedural

LONDON -- RTL-owned British broadcaster Five has picked up rights to the Warner Bros. International Television-distributed "The Mentalist" as part of its existing licensing deal with the studio.

Five will air the crime procedural -- which stars Simon Baker as Patrick Jane, a one-time psychic who uses his skills as a consultant to the California Bureau of Investigation -- in 2009, airing on Five and its sister digital network Five US.

The show promises “top-notch story-telling and a charismatic lead,” according to Katie Keenan, Five’s deputy head of acquisitions.
