      Torchwood This Week
      June 12, 2010 - Volume 4, Number 19
      by Benjamin F. Elliott

      Torchwood is coming back for a 4th series - a year from now! US Premium Cable outlet Starz http://www.starz.com is partnering with the BBC on 10 new episodes, due to premiere in the US and UK in the Summer of 2011. John Barrowman and Eve Myles are returning.

      Starz is a premium suite of movie channels similar to HBO and Showtime. Starz has been producing TV shows since 2008, again to be like HBO and Showtime. Starz' shows include Crash, Party Down, and Spartacus: Blood And Sand. Starz has a reputation for not interfering with TV shows, allowing as much nudity, profanity, violence, and sexual content as the makers of the shows desire. Any content restrictions and limits on the shows for time will likely come from the BBC and their standards for whatever primetime slot on BBC One Torchwood will air on in the UK.

      With previous Starz' dramas, US subscribers to the online version of Netflix were able to watch the episodes on that service starting the day after the Starz premiere for no additional cost. We have no way to know if the deal with Torchwood will be the same yet.

      Starz has the exclusive US rights to the premiere of the 4th series. We do not know if the shows will later become available to BBC America or other networks.

      USA/Canada - HD Net http://www.hd.net will repeat Torchwood Series 1 in order weekdays starting 28 June at 1PM EDT/10AM PDT. This is the first time that HD Net's US and Canadian feeds (which are separate) have aired Torchwood simultaneously. HD Net US has not aired Torchwood in well over a year, probably related to BBC America having the exclusive US rights at the time to Series 3 (Children Of Earth). I do not know how long Torchwood will be on HD Net US (HD Net Canada never stopped airing it - for them this is just a change in timeslot), or whether either HD Net will get rights to air the Children Of Earth episodes.
