ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) has announced that the recently commissioned second series of Rectify (10×60’) – a Sundance Channel original production, will premiere on all Sundance Channel Global networks throughout Asia and Europe, including Turkey, France, Iberia, Benelux and CEE. This follows the deal with ITVS GE and AMC/Sundance Channel Global for exclusive premiere window rights to the critically acclaimed drama in these regions.
Created and written by Academy Award winner Ray McKinnon and executive produced by Gran Via’s Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein, Rectify launched on April 22 on Sundance Channel US to an overwhelmingly positive critical reception. The series has subsequently premiered on Sundance Channel Global in the Netherlands, Spain and across CEE.
Tobias de Graaff, Director of Global Television Distribution for ITV Studios Global Entertainment, said: “Rectify is a powerful and absorbing drama which has been deservedly lauded by critics in the US, and we anticipate that it will be just as well received when it debuts on Sundance Channel Global across Asia and parts of Europe. We are delighted that a second series has already been commissioned and look forward to working with our partners to deliver more distinctive, stand-out episodes from this fantastic drama.”
