Netflix has signed the rights for new Kiefer Sutherland series Designated Survivor outside the USA.
The first episode, which premiered in the US yesterday, is now available for streaming in Australia.
The series from ABC Studios and The Mark Gordon Company is airing in the US on ABC, meaning new episodes will be available on a weekly basis, rather than the traditional full series ‘binge.’
On the night of the State of the Union, an explosion claims the lives of the President and all members of the Cabinet except for Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Tom Kirkman, who had been named the designated survivor. Kirkman is immediately sworn in as President, unaware that the attack is just the beginning of what is to come.
