VTM, the leading commercial TV channel in Belgium, announced today that it has commissioned two new seasons of the successful Belgian police series “CITY DISTRICT” (= “ZONE STAD” / 52 x 50′ or 78 x 50′ with the 2 new Seasons).Season 4 is now broadcast every Monday in prime-time on VTM, and ratings are still very good.
Last Monday for example, the police series seduced 871 647 viewers. The Market Share was also very high : 37,6 % Market Share on the target 18-54 years old… while the average Market Share of the channel (VTM) is 25,5% on this target in October.
All this while “CITY DISTRICT” is broadcast in front of “SURVIVOR” on Ka2 and American blockbusters (“Mission Impossible”,…) on VT4 !
These very good ratings convinced VTM to order directly two new Seasons.
