‘A Discovery of Witches’ Acquired by Sundance Now and Shudder

Announcement Made at San Diego Comic Con

Sundance Now, AMC Networks’ direct-to-consumer SVOD service, and Shudder, the streaming service for thriller, suspense and horror, today announced at San Diego Comic Con the joint acquisition of the Sky original production, “A Discovery of Witches.” The eight-episode drama is produced by Bad Wolf — the creative team behind “The Night Of,” :Doctor Who,” “Torchwood,” “Da Vinci’s Demons” and the forthcoming adaptation of Philip Pullman’s “His Dark Materials.”

Based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Deborah Harkness, “A Discovery of Witches” stars Matthew Goode (“The Crown”), Teresa Palmer (“Hacksaw Ridge”), Alex Kingston (“ER”), Valarie Pettiford (“Being Mary Jane”) and Owen Teale (“Game of Thrones”).

“A Discovery of Witches” will premiere on Sky Vision in the UK on September 14, and on Sundance Now and Shudder in the US on a date to be confirmed.
