European pay TV giant Sky has acquired Fox procedural 911 for its Sky Living network and Now TV streaming service in the U.K. and Ireland.

Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution on Monday unveiled the deal for the scripted series from creators/executive producers/writers Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story, Nip/Tuck), Brad Falchuk (American Horror Story, Nip/Tuck) and Tim Minear (Feud, American Horror Story).

Since its U.S. debut in January, 911 has become the top new scripted series on Fox in terms of total viewers and adults 18-49. 

"Developed by one of our industry’s strongest creative teams with an award-winning cast, 911 proves the audience demand for compelling procedural dramas remains incredibly high,” said Gina Brogi, president of global distribution, Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution. “911 is yet another great example of how our global sales team can strategically take a solid U.S. procedural and position it to be an international hit in a highly competitive marketplace."

Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution has also licensed the show across such territories as Canada, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Korea, India, the Philippines and Central and Latin America.

The series, which explores the high-pressure experiences of police officers, paramedics and firefighters, stars Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Connie Britton. 911, which scored an early season two renewal, is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Ryan Murphy Television and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision.
