TV drama Manhattan will launch exclusively in the UK on BT’s AMC channel on January 5th 2016. BT customers will be the first to see the critically acclaimed 13-episode original series in the New Year.
Manhattan has the backdrop of the race to build the world’s first atomic bomb and follows the scientists and their families in a remote location in Los Alamos, New Mexico, as they attempt to coexist in a world where secrets and lies infiltrate every aspect of their lives.
BT TV and BT Sport managing director Delia Bushell said: “Manhattan is the latest exclusive premiere for BT customers […] AMC on BT offers an exciting range of top dramas such as Fear the Walking Dead and Rectify. Last quarter, BT TV added 106,000 new BT TV customers, taking our TV customer base to 1.3 million. This represents our best ever quarter, reflecting our strong content line-up. “Announcing exclusive shows like Manhattan on AMC reinforces that we continuously strive to offer the best TV shows available.”
The first episode of Manhattan will be available free of charge on BT Showcase
