Amazon has snapped up the UK TV rights to sci-fi mystery drama The Crossing, which will premiere on Prime Video this Easter.
The series tells the story of a group of refugees from a war-torn country 250 years in the future who seek asylum in a small American fishing town. The country these people are from? America. The war they are fleeing from? It hasn’t happened yet.
As the government tries to uncover the truth behind this mysterious migration, only one thing is certain: the lives of the people here — both the townspeople and these newcomers — will never be the same.
The Crossing stars Steve Zahn (War for the Planet of the Apes, Captain Fantastic) as Jude Miller, Natalie Martinez (Death Race, End of Watch) as Reece, Sandrine Holt (House of Cards, The Returned) as Emma Ren, Rick Gomez (Band of Brothers, Sin City) as Nestor, Jay Karnes (The Shield) as Craig Lindauer, Marcuis Harris (Grey’s Anatomy) as Caleb, Simone Kessel (Of Kings and Prophets) as Rebecca, Kelley Missal (Sleepy Hollow) as Hannah, Rob Campbell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) as Paul, Grant Harvey (The Secret Life of the American Teenager) as Roy, Bailey Skodje (If there be Thorns) as Leah, John D’Leo (The Family) as Will, Luc Roderique (Godzilla) as Bryce and Tommy Bastow (Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging) as Marshall.
It is written by Dan Dworkin (Criminal Minds, Scorpion, Revenge) and Jay Beattie (Criminal Minds, Scorpion, Revenge), who executive produce alongside Jason Reed (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). It is produced by ABC Studios.
Amazon acquired the show in a deal with Disney EMEA, which also includes the UK TV rights to Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger.
“This marks another step forward in bringing best-in-class TV shows to Prime Video customers in Europe,” says Jay Marine, VP Prime Video EU. “We are thrilled to be bringing Marvel’s next hugely anticipated TV series exclusively to Prime Video and we look forward to hearing the reaction from Marvel fans and newcomers to the iconic entertainment series alike as they discover the universe of Cloak & Dagger.
