Are there too many crime dramas on TV?
BBC1 controller Danny Cohen has criticised the number of crime dramas on TV.
He also said the BBC ran the risk of having too many” male detectives on screen.
Cohen said the number of male-led crime shows had fuelled his decision to axe the Rome-based series Zen earlier this year after just three episodes.
He said he was hoping to “broaden the range” of shows commissioned for BBC1.
