Sky1 has reportedly commissioned two new 13-part series for 2013.

Line of Duty creator Jed Mercurio will return to television with a new medical drama, which has the working title Critical, according to Broadcast.

The series is said to focus on the 'golden hour' - the crucial period immediately following a serious injury when treatment can save lives.

A science fiction drama is also apparently in the works from The Deep writer Simon Donald.

In addition, the report claims that the broadcaster is considering adapting Scandinavian crime drama The Bridge for UK television.

The potential remake - to be written by Ben Richards (Outcasts, Spooks) - was first announced in May and could enter production in early 2013.

US cable network FX is already developing a pilot for its own remake of The Bridge starring Diane Kruger, Annabeth Gish and Matthew Lillard.
