Virgin Media is offering hit US show Kingdom exclusively to its TV customers to watch on demand from April 1st. 

The show is a raw, emotional family drama set against the backdrop of the renegade subculture of mixed martial arts.

Dave Bouchier, Chief Digital Entertainment Officer at Virgin Media, believes it will prove very popular with TV viewers in the UK, as Kingdom offers edgy and immersive stories, exciting talent and characters with real depth.

"We want to bring our customers something distinctive which they won't otherwise see on British TV," he commented.

"Kingdom ticks all of these boxes and I know our customers are going to love it."

Mr Bouchier went on to state that Virgin Media has "huge plans" for its TV service in 2016.

Viewers will be able to watch the first six episodes of Kingdom from the beginning of April, while a new episode will then be released every week.

The season one finale will be broadcast along with the opening episode of season two to join both series together.

Endemol Shrine International (ESI), the distribution company with the rights to Kingdom, has said it is "thrilled" that Virgin Media is bringing the show to TV viewers in the UK.

Cathy Payne, Chief Executive of ESI, commented: "We are confident Kingdom will be embraced by viewers here in the UK as it has across the USA, Canada, Australia, France, Germany and Latin America, to name a few of the territories where the series has built a strong following.”
