Sky Witness has secured the exclusive UK rights to NBC’s supernatural drama series The InBetween after striking a deal with sister company NBCUniversal International Distribution. The show’s first season will premiere on Monday November 11th at 9pm.
Created by Moira Kirland, The InBetween tells the story of Cassie Bedford, who was born with a rare ability. She has visions … whether she likes it or not. Sometimes Cassie sees events that have previously occurred or will happen in the future. In addition, sometimes she encounters unsettled spirits who need her help.
When her father, Det. Tom Hackett, and his new partner, former FBI Agent Damien Asante, need assistance solving a dark and puzzling murder, Cassie reluctantly agrees to use her abilities and helps solve some of the city’s most challenging cases. The series is produced by Universal Television, NBCU International Television Studios and Heyday Television and stars Harriet Dyer, Justin Cornwell, Anne-Marie Johnson, Cindy Luna, Chad James Buchanan and Paul Blackthorne.
Notably, The InBetween had initially been destined for a berth on Universal TV. Earlier this year, sources told TVWise that the NBCU channel was in talks with NBCUniversal International Distribution to secure UK rights to the show. Following the Sky-Comcast deal, which resulted in Sky being given operational control of NBCU’s UK channels (Universal TV, Syfy UK, E!UK, and Movies 24), the decision was made to instead give it a slot on Sky Witness. Rumour has it that several of Universal TV’s other key acquisitions are also destined for such a relocation.
