A quality channel acquires a quality series :
Sundance Channel (Top of the Lake, Rectify) has acquired U.S. broadcast rights to the eight-part French supernatural drama The Returned (Les revenants).
It will premiere on Sundance Channel on Halloween, October 31, and air every Thursday at 9 PM.
"We decided to take zombies to a new and utterly original level — we made them French!" stated Sarah Barnett, President of Sundance Channel.
An American VOD/DVD release of the first season will follow in January 2014. France and the UK (the show aired there on Channel 4) have already released the show on DVD.
Season 2 will start filming in early 2014.
By the way, the 12-episode second season of Canal+'s very funny original comedy series Platane begins Monday.
Here's a teaser showing Eric Judor (the main character who portrays a version of himself in the show) trying to lure some guests who you'll find to be familiar to Canal+ series viewers :
