Drama doesn’t come any hotter than Prime’s latest acquisition – the new 10-part international thriller Torchwood: Miracle Day which will soon debut on the free-to-air channel.
Channel Manager Kathy Wright says Prime was quick to secure the series as soon as it was available in this market as part of Prime’s commitment to bringing quality drama to New Zealand audiences.
“I’m delighted to be adding this star-studded adventure series to our schedule. Torchwood: Miracle Day will be a fantastic addition to our prime-time programming mix and we will be doing everything we can to bring it to Kiwi’s living rooms as quickly as possible,” she said.
Torchwood: Miracle Day has been created and written by legendary British script-writer Russell T. Davies. As the series begins, convicted child killer Oswald Danes miraculously survives his own execution and at the same time, people all over the world stop dying. Day after day, the phenomenon continues as people get old and sick but they won’t die. While the planet succumbs to panic, a secret British institution named Torchwood seems to hold all the answers.
