Marvel's Agent Carter first on Fox in the UK



Finally. Marvel's Agent Carter has a home in the UK. Only it's not Channel Four, which currently shows first run episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Fox UK has inked a multi-year deal with Disney to show the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spin-off series from this July.

“Marvel’s Agent Carter is blockbuster Hollywood entertainment at its best”, said Jeff Ford, Managing Director of Fox International Channels UK. “With high production values and a stellar UK and international cast, the series is the perfect addition to FOX UK’s summer line up, continuing the channel’s commitment to bring exclusive, original and breakthrough series to a UK audience.”

Fox UK has become synonymous with award-winning genre television and has been buoyed by the success of Falling Skies and The Walking Dead.

“Marvel’s Agent Carter is another great example of gripping storytelling from ABC Studios, so we're delighted that it has found a home in the UK on FOX”, added Dayna Donaldson, Disney Media Distribution’s GM for the UK and Ireland. “We're sure that the compelling, fast-paced and mysterious storylines will keep UK viewers on the edge of their seats this summer.”

Agent Carter premieres 9PM Sunday, July 12th on Fox UK.
