FINALLY! Law & Order: UK on BBC AMERICA October 3rd!

Jamie's been as put out by the delay as we in the U.S. have been.


BBC America, after airing promos and after a fury of speculative tweeting, have OFFICIALLY announced Law & Order: UK will premiere on October 3rd at 10:30pm! Subsequent episodes will air on Fridays at 9:00pm. And they will air all 26 episodes filmed to date! :)

From TVbytheNumbers.com:

This October, BBC AMERICA brings 26 episodes of the hit show Law & Order: UK home to the U.S. Based on Emmy award-winning producer Dick Wolf’s long-running crime series, Law & Order: UK follows the familiar two part format: beginning each episode with a crime, followed by the legal and court proceedings to convict the criminal. All scripts have been taken from the U.S. version to retain the grittiness of the original series, but adapted to fit with the British legal system, providing a uniquely British twist. Law & Order: UK premieres Sunday, October 3, 10:30p.m. ET/PT with subsequent episodes premiering on Fridays, 9:00p.m. ET/PT.

Pardon my language, but it's about damn time! More information to follow as I get it. :)

The Wrap: 'Law & Order: UK' Coming to BBC America.

The Futon Critic: BBC AMERICA BRINGS LAW & ORDER: UK HOME TO THE U.S.

Huzzaaaaah! *waves her Union Jack-y icon far 'n' wide* :D

Such fantastic news. It's about time they picked up some more actual BRITISH programming, plus L&O has such brand appeal in the States it's a perfect program for them to buy rights to. Glad we were able to get this confirmed before the day was out! (heh)

Amused sidenote: Kind of a shame they won't have it as the lead-in to Luther on Sundays. But oddly fitting to have Jamie back on Fridays, innit? :)

ETA: Also, DS Devlin and his straw are v. pleased.

Sadly, while I get BBC America, I don't get the HD channel. :/ But I'll still be watching!

It's still better than a laptop screen and he will be on every Friday. Nice!

Now if we can get BBC America to stream the show via Hulu then I will be the happiest of campers.

Have BBCA uploaded anything to Hulu in the past? I am drawing a total blank.

It looks like Coupling and The Office (UK) are the two current offerings. *crosses fingers*
