Amazon Prime Video Acquires UK Rights To USA Network’s ‘Falling Water’

falling-water-key-artUSA Network’s Falling Water has found a UK home.

Amazon Prime Video has secured the exclusive UK rights to the mind-bending drama after striking a deal with NBCUniversal International Distribution, TVWise has learned. The show’s ten episode first season will be available to stream for UK Prime members next month.

Falling Water tells the story of three unrelated people, who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream. Each of them is on a mysterious and highly personal quest and it is the clues found in their collective dream that come to guide them. The deeper they dig, though, the more they come to realize that their missions touch on stakes that are much larger than their individual agendas.

The drama series hails from The Walking Dead’s Gale Anne Hurd, Blake Masters (Brotherhood) and the late Henry Bromell (Homeland). It is produced by USA Network’s sister studio Universal Cable Productions and stars David Ajala (Fast & Furious 6), Will Yun Lee (Hawaii Five-0) and Lizzie Brochere (American Horror Story: Asylum). The executive producers are Gale Anne Hurd, Blake Masters, Henry Bromell and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo – who also directed the pilot.

Notably, this deal for first window UK rights to Falling Water comes after word leaked out last month that the streaming service was close to striking a deal with NBCU for the U.S. SVOD rights to the show. I hear that UK rights were also included in that same deal, which was reported by Hollywood trade Deadline, and was said to be significantly increasing the odds that USA Network would pick up a second season. Falling Water is the second USA Network series to land on Amazon here in the UK, following in the foot-steps of Mr. Robot.
