New Jennifer Lopez-starring cop show Shades of Blue, recently renewed by NBC for a second season, has locked down a U.K. home.

Sky Living, part of pan-European pay TV giant Sky, announced Tuesday that it had exclusively picked up the drama, set around a single-mother NYPD detective. It also stars Ray Liotta.

The channel will also exclusively show the fourth season of hit ABC music drama Nashville, which had previously been airing in Britain on broadcaster Channel 4. Other U.S. shows on Sky Living include Blacklist and Elementary, although its most-watched drama to date has been its own U.K. commission The Enfield Haunting, starring Timothy Spall.

"These two brilliant shows coming to Sky Living just strengthens our reputation for fantastic U.S. drama, so I couldn’t be happier to have Shades of Blue and Nashville coming to the channel," said Adam MacDonald, director of Sky 1 and Sky Living. "They have everything that a Sky Living drama should have and more: strong characters, engrossing storylines and the talk-ability our customers love."
