The CBC is eyeing a third season for Cracked, the White Pines Pictures’ police procedural.

The pubcaster on Wednesday ordered two scripts and a bible from the indie producer after a second season with an uptick in the average audience to 824,000 viewers.

Sally Catto, executive director, commissioned and scripted programming at CBC English Television, told Playback Wednesday that her network has ordered further development for Cracked. 

Other series in further development are Murdoch Mysteries, Republic of Doyle, Arctic Air, Mr. D and The Ron James Show.

At the same time, the CBC has made no decision on whether to give Cracked a third season production order.

The sophomore season for Cracked featured Brooke Nevin replacing Stefanie von Pfetten as a partner in the Psych Crimes and Crisis Unit to David Sutcliffe’s veteran police sergeant lead.

Cracked has also been sold internationally, including to Canal Plus and NBCU in France, Germany’s ProSiebens and Italy’s Discovery Crime Channel.

The Canadian cop drama, which was shopped at MIPCOM by international distributor Beta, also has a Scandinavian deal pending.
