HDNet Delves into the Supernatural with the
Smash-Hit BBC Series TORCHWOOD Premiering

Provocative Sci-Fi Thriller Set to Air Every
Monday in High Definition on HDNet Beginning

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HDNet announced today
that it has acquired the high definition rights
to the first 26 episodes of TORCHWOOD, the hit
sci-fi drama that the BBC describes as
inventive, intelligent and unpredictable.
Set in Cardiff, Wales, TORCHWOOD is the name
given to a renegade group of investigators who
scavenge alien technology to solve crime, both
alien and human. Led by Captain Jack Harkness,
the Torchwood Institute is a group onto
themselves, separate from the government,
outside the police and beyond the United
Nations. The series delves into the unknown,
with the characters battling against the
impossible and highly volatile world of savage
aliens and monsters while still trying to
maintain their own lives.
In what the BBC called an "incredible
achievement," the first two installments of
TORCHWOOD set a ratings record in the U.K.,
scoring higher than LOST when the two programs
Were thrilled to be airing TORCHWOOD in HD,
said Mark Cuban, president and co-founder of
HDNet. This is certainly a Russell T. Davies
signature show. TORCHWOOD explores adult themes
and doesn't shy away from anything. Whether its
the diverse storylines or the heros ambivalence
to sexual boundaries, this is not your typical
show, and I love it.
TORCHWOOD is a spin-off of the long running
science fiction hit DR. WHO. HDNet will premiere
TORCHWOOD on Monday, September 17, at 7:00 p.m.
ET with encore airings scheduled for 10:00 p.m.
ET, and 1:00 a.m. ET to accommodate West Coast
