Variety notes that France’s Canal Plus has added ABC’s Detroit 1-8-7 to its 2011 schedule. It had already added NBC’s The Event.

In its typically cheerleadery (and insidery language) style, Variety notes that Detroit 1-8-7 has “earned positive crix response overall”.

No surprise though that Variety failed to note that the ratings for Detroit 1-8-7 likely consign it to cancellation by the end of this US broadcast season.

Although I’m sure some 187 fans will use this news to desperately cover a fan excuse bingo square.

And with The Event also likely to be cancelled, ABC’s got to hope that Canal’s third pick, its upcoming drama Body of Proof, doesn’t suffer the same fate.
