Universal Channel has acquired the UK premiere rights to mystery-adventure drama Sleepy Hollow, and new contemporary crime drama Graceland, from Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution.
These acquisitions join Bates Motel as part of the roll-out of new programming to complement the channel’s refreshed on-air look, according to Universal Channel.
Nicky Douglas, managing director, Universal Networks International, UK, said: “With Bates Motel set to make its UK premier on Universal Channel, we’ve been looking for further distinctive, new content to bring our character-focused positioning to life. With truly magnetic and intriguing central characters, both Sleepy Hollow and Graceland deliver that and also tap into the universal and relatable themes of belief and trust which will resonate and appeal to our core viewers and new audiences alike.”
