ReelzChannel Lines Up XIII

April 10, 2012 - World Screen

ALBUQUERQUE: The spy thriller XIII, from Prodigy Pictures and Luc Besson's EuropaCorp Television, has been picked up by ReelzChannel in the U.S. as its second original scripted drama series.

XIII stars Stuart Townsend and Aisha Tyler. The series was developed and produced by Jay Firestone's Prodigy Pictures and Luc Besson's French production company EuropaCorp. It is based on Jean Van Hamme's graphic novels, which have sold more than 13 million copies worldwide.

This Friday, April 13, there's a special sneak peek of XIII set for 9 p.m. during an episode of True Justice. The sneak peek will run again on Hollywood Dailies on April 16 at 5:30 p.m. and on Naked Trailers on April 19 at 11:30 p.m.

“If you combined the Bourne Identity movies with the 24 TV series, you have XIII,” said Matthew Singerman, ReelzChannel's senior VP of programming. “It’s an exciting, riveting show with action and drama that will keep our viewers on the edge of their seats. The XIII series also serves as a great platform for 'TV About Movies' programming, providing many great topics for taking viewers inside the timeless genre of spy thriller and secret agent action movies.”

“I’m thrilled that fans of XIII will have the opportunity to see this incredible series on ReelzChannel,” added Jay Firestone, the executive producer of XIII. “Reelz is the perfect home for XIII as it’s a network committed to shows that are cinematic in scope.”
