'Aquarius' starring David Duchovny is coming to Sky Atlantic next month.
Duchovny plays Sam Hodiak, an LA homicide detective investigating a missing girl. This leads him to a sinister cult run by Charles Manson, played by Gethin Anthony ('Game of Thrones'). It's not a spoiler to say things aren't going to end well.
The series will air on Sky in all the broadcaster's European territories. These are the UK, Ireland, Italy, Germany and Austria.
"I'm thrilled Sky has secured 'Aquarius' for our customers across Europe," said Gary Davey, Sky's managing director of content.
"With an excellent script and high production values as well as an acclaimed cast, it will make for gripping television. Exclusively on Sky Atlantic, 'Aquarius' further strengthens Sky's position as the home of quality drama across Europe."
The show was acquired from ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
Dan Dopal, EVP EMEA distribution and global digital partners for ITV Studios Global Entertainment, added: "Sky's reputation for broadcasting the best international content makes it the perfect home for Aquarius, a compelling drama which combines intelligent writing, thrilling storyline, the star power of David Duchovny and the iconic fashion and music of the 1960s.
"We are delighted that it will launch on Sky Atlantic in the UK during August, while the series continues its run in the US, and we look forward to its forthcoming debut in Sky's other European territories later this year.
"It's great that Sky's audience will be able to enjoy the show across the full offering of Sky's linear and on-demand services in each market, whether at home or on the go."
The series consists of 13 episodes, each an hour long. It will start at 9pm on August 11th on Sky Atlantic.
