The 6x60mins series, about a prisoner released after two decades on death row, is an original production for Sundance in the US.

Its international sister channel, Sundance Global, has acquired the series from its distributor ITV Studios Global Entertainment for Asia, Latin America and select European territories including France, Iberia, Benelux and CEE.

Rectify is produced by Gran Via (Breaking Bad) and will debut on Sundance in the US this spring.

The acquisition comes as Sundance Global moves to pick up more shows from its US counterpart and in early windows.

“More and more as we go forward, and as [AMC Networks] produces new shows, we will see first-window activity,” Bruce Tuchman, president, AMC/Sundance Channel Global, recently told TBI.
