SBS has purchased seasons one and two of Amazon’s crime series Bosch, starring Titus Welliver (Lost) as an LAPD homicide detective whose dedication to duty often conflicts with his personal and professional life.
SBS ONE will air 10 part series from July, based on the successful books by Michael Connelly.
Speaking about the Australian deal, Marshall Heald, director of television and online content for SBS, said: “The story of LAPD homicide detective Harry Bosch has captivated millions of readers for years and Bosch the series brings the same grit and intrigue fans of author Michael Connelly’s best-selling franchise expect and new audiences will be gripped by.
“Bosch is the perfect addition to SBS’s slate of premium drama and enhances our commitment to delivering the world’s best drama to Australian audiences.”
Amazon renewed the series one month after the biggest ever debut weekend for the streaming service. During its first four weeks, it was the most-watched show on Amazon, including all movies and television.
