The high-profile TV series to get a remake for Russian and Ukrainian viewers, the Hollywood Reporter.
American hit series The Mentalist will be produced by company Star Media, which operates in both countries and will be aired on Russia's Channel One and TV-3 in 2017.
The 16-part series will engage Alexei Muradov for a helming position, with Yehezkel Lazarov and Anastasiya Mikulchina starring in the TV project.
In Russia, the series will air on Channel One and TV-3 and is tentatively scheduled to launch in late 2017.
These TV networks are not available in Ukraine; the Ukrainian network that will air the Russian-language adaptation is expected to be announced later.
"We are keeping in mind fans of the original Mentalist," producer Vlad Ryashin was quoted as saying by trade journal Booker's Bulletin. "However, we're making a project for the broadest audience possible."
Shooting will take place in Russia and in Ukraine's port city of Odessa, making the project a rare Russian-Ukrainian collaboration since the relations between the two countries have soured over Russia's annexation of Crimea and support for rebels in East Ukraine.
