Glitch breaks new ground for ABC TV
ABC TV is thrilled to announce a network first for its six-part supernatural drama Glitch.
The Matchbox Pictures production will premiere on ABC on Thursday July 9 at 8.30pm. Immediately following the premiere, the entire series will be available to watch exclusively on ABC iview.
It’s great news for our audience as they get to choose how and when they watch Glitch – when it plays out weekly on ABC or every episode, whenever it suits on ABC iview.
ABC TV Head of Programming Brendan Dahill says, “Glitch really is something of a ground breaking project for the ABC. Increasingly, TV audiences are demanding more in regards to how and where they watch content – we are acknowledging this by taking this bold approach. Packed with compelling storylines and cliffhangers, we’re sure our audiences will take advantage of this great opportunity to access the entire Glitch series, free on ABC iview.”
Starring Patrick Brammall, Emma Booth, Rodger Corser, Genevieve O’Reilly, Sean Keenan, Ned Dennehy, Daniela Farinacci and Andrew McFarlane, Glitch tells the emotional story of six seemingly unconnected people who have inexplicably returned from the dead, alive and in good health. With no memory of their identities, disbelief quickly gives way to a determination to discover who they are and what has happened to them.
But the mystery soon becomes deeply personal to Sergeant James Hayes (Brammall) when he recognises one of the group: it’s the love of his life, his recently deceased wife Kate (Booth).
Glitch is a moving story about love, loss, the past and what it means to be human.
