The Amazon Prime import finally gets a linear run.
Have you still not seen Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s acclaimed cult comedy Fleabag but maintain a moral opposition to shelling out $12.99 a month to Jeff Bezos for Amazon Prime? Well, you’re in luck. The import comedy is finally heading to traditional American TV.
IFC announced Thursday that the first season of the acclaimed serial, based on Waller-Bridge’s stage play of the same name, is getting its first stateside linear run over the holidays. The six-part first season premieres Wednesday, Dec. 26, starting at 11 p.m. Episodes will repeat in late night.
The series was nominated for a Critics Choice Award and won Waller-Bridge a BAFTA for her performance in the lead role. Oscar frontrunner Olivia Coleman (The Favourite) also stars.
