AMC Global Acquires ‘Humans’ From Endemol Shine

AMC Global has acquired exclusive first window television rights to “Humans” from Endemol Shine International.

The 8 x 60 mins series will debut in most AMC Global territories in October with a second season to premiere in 2016. The series will continue to air in the U.K. on the Channel 4 free to air network.

AMC Global said that the international broadcast of its upcoming martial arts series, “Into the Badlands,” will start in conjunction with AMC U.S.’s 10 p.m. Nov 15 launch. With the exception of the U.K., where it will not go to air until 2016, the show will then reair in local time zones during primetime. The 6 x 60 mins series starring Hong Hong’s Daniel Wu was produced by AMC Studios. The channel has exclusive first window international TV rights to the series.

Set in the U.K. and starring William Hurt, “Humans” takes place in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a Synth – an artificially intelligent servant eerily similar to its living counterpart. It was scripted by British writing partners Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (“Spooks”) and based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama “Real Humans.” The series is produced by Kudos (“Utopia,” “Broadchurch,” “The Hour”) in association with Matador Films (“Real Humans”) and directed by Sam Donovan.

AMC Global has also given a 15-episode order for a second season of “Fear the Walking Dead,” prior to the screen debut of the initial run. AMC previously announced that the first season will debut simultaneously with the AMC U.S. premiere on August 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT with repeats in local time zones during primetime. The second season will air on AMC Global in 2016.

In the U.K., the first season of “Fear the Walking Dead” will launch on AMC exclusively on BT TV shortly after the U.S. premiere date.

AMC Global launched in late 2014 and is available in over 125 countries in Latin America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
