Filming the planned new Bergerac series in Jersey could add £4 million to the economy.
Artists Studios, Endemol Shine UK, and Jersey-based Westward Studios are planning a reboot of the classic police series.
The Economic Development Minister, Senator Lyndon Farnham, says he will do everything in his power to make sure it is filmed on the island.
Bergerac, which is set in Jersey, was a popular watch in the 80s and 90s and ran for nine series, starring John Nettles as detective Jim Bergerac.
Emmy award winning Gub Neal, who is behind Prime Suspect, Cracker and The Fall is the Lead Producer working on the development alongside Jersey production company, Westward Studios.
