Presto has announced it has acquired the exclusive first run Australian rights to the highly anticipated drama series Aquarius, starring David Duchovny (The X-Files, Californication). A special chance to binge, dubbed Age of Aquarius, will bring all 13 episodes of the series in its entirety to Presto starting Friday May 29, same day as the US, for the first 28 days. Afterward, Presto will continue to screen each episode of Aquarius as it makes its linear broadcast run in the US and will keep all episodes available following the season’s conclusion. Duchovny stars as a cop who goes undercover to track Charles Manson and the infamous Manson family.
The exclusive Australian premiere of the full season of Aquarius will be available to stream on demand by subscribers of Presto TV and the Presto Entertainment bundle.
Shaun James, director of Presto and On Demand, said, “There has been huge anticipation for Aquarius, both for the historic and infamous subject matter the series is based on, but also for David Duchovny’s return to a major television role. Presto is delighted to have secured the exclusive first run Australian rights to air Aquarius from our partners Seven West Media and even more excited to bring all 13 episodes to our subscribers to binge on in full during its initial run.”
NBC recently announced it would make all episodes available on the one day online.
Seven will screen the series here later in 2015.
