Presto adding new titles Rogue, The Firm, Bitten.

Three Canadian series coming to Presto including an undercover crime drama starring Thandie Newton.


Presto has announced three new series titles to its streaming platform through eOne distributors.

All three are filmed in Canada, although undercover crime drama Rogue, starring Thandie Newton, is set in California. The series premiered in 2013 with two seasons having aired and more on the way.

2012 NBC series The Firm, a suspense based on the John Grisham film / novel stars Josh Lucas but was cancelled at 22 episodes.

Supernatural werewolf thriller Bitten, centres on a female werewolf played by Laura Vandervoort, with two seasons having aired on Canadian sci-fi channel, Space.

Shaun James, Interim CEO of Presto TV, said, “eOne has one of the best collections of current hit TV programs worldwide and we’re thrilled to add a top-tier selection of some of their most suspenseful and thought provoking titles including Hell on Wheels, Bitten, The Firm and The Slap to Presto. We’ve already had enormous success following the addition of The Walking Dead, which we recently acquired from eOne as an SVOD exclusive. Today’s news will solidify that success even further.”

“We’re delighted to be expanding our relationship with Presto,” commented Ben Bishop, Sales Director, eOne. “Given the recent success with The Walking Dead, we are confident that they are the perfect partner to bring this exciting new slate of programming to Australian audiences.”

Additional programs slated to appear from eOne include:

· Hell on Wheels seasons 1-4
· Haven seasons 1-4
· The Slap season 1:
· Rookie Blue seasons 1-4

  1. I’m glad haven is on, i started bitten and matador but never kept watching, I can’t wait until one of the 3 streaming dies since we don’t need 3, I’m guessing stan will be the one to die within 3yrs, then more shows for the others

  2. @ David Knox – am I right in saying that Bitten, Rogue, The Firm, and even Matador haven’t aired in Australia on other networks? I don’t recall the first three ever premiering (although there was talk Syfy should get Bitten) but am not as sure regarding Matador (for some reason I think I remember it being mentioned to premiere on SBS – I’m most probably wrong but for some reason it rings a bell). Nevertheless it’s good to see Presto try and up the ante by offering more ‘Preso Premieres’ (if their marketing team likes that they can keep it :p )
