Killer Deal: Showtime's 'Dexter' Finds a Basic Cable Home TVWeek
Showtime's acclaimed drama series "Dexter" has landed on basic cable. The serial killer show is set for a January 2014 premiere on NUVOtv, after the English-language, Latino-focused network inked a syndication deal.
The network announced today that it will launch the show Jan. 13 and will air all eight seasons, with episodes running "uncut and in their entirety."
Said Bill Hilary, Executive Vice President, Programming, NUVOtv: “We are absolutely thrilled that NUVOtv has acquired the rights to air the first window of this groundbreaking series on basic cable. 'Dexter's' brilliant ensemble of Latino cast members, in lead and supporting roles, throughout all eight seasons, will resonate positively with our young NUVOtv audience. Having been the #1 rated series on Showtime with the Latino audience, this multi-award-winning drama is a great addition to the slate of new original series planned for NUVOtv over the next year.”
Golden Globe winner Michael C. Hall stars as Dexter Morgan -- a Miami forensics expert by day and a serial killer by night.
The network announcement notes: "The series features a stellar cast of Latino actors including recent Alma-award winner Lauren Velez, David Zayas, Angel Juan Marcos Batista, Aimee Garcia, Christian Camargo, Edward James Olmos and Jimmy Smits, to name just a few."
