SCI-FI MEGAHIT "MISFITS" MAKES U.S. TELEVISION DEBUT ON LOGO

BAFTA-Winning, UK Series Premieres July 19th at 10PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY - June 7, 2012 - If you were suddenly granted superpowers, would you save the world, or just get laid? Meet the most unconventional group of anti-heroes yet in the most provocative sci-fi series ever made. And only Logo has the guts to bring this breakout hit from across the pond to American television. Fans can look forward to all four seasons of "Misfits" in the upcoming months. Sexy, dark, and defiantly British, the first season of "Misfits" (six, one-hour episodes) premieres Thursday, July 19 at 10PM ET/PT on Logo.

When a group of law-breaking 20-somethings are suddenly vested with supernatural powers during a freak electrical storm, their already out-of-control lives are plunged into even deeper chaos. The rough and rebellious clan includes characters Nathan Young (Robert Sheehan), Simon Bellamy (Iwan Rheon), Curtis Donovan (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), Kelly Bailey (Lauren Socha), and Alisha Bailey (Antonia Thomas). Whether it's turning back time, or throwing people into a sexual frenzy, their newfound abilities prove to be as troublesome as they are strange. As they come to terms with their powers, these teens will have to decide how to use them and whether to do so for good or just for good times. Take the supernatural formula, give it a bad attitude, a punk haircut, and hit of ecstasy - and you'll get an idea of just what makes this series so wildly different. "Misfits" joyfully crosses lines, defies expectations, and could only appear in the U.S. on Logo.

"We're proud to introduce the U.S. television audience to this beloved series, which is like the mutant offspring of 'True Blood' and 'X-Men,'" said Marc Leonard, Senior Vice President of Multiplatform Programming, Logo. "'Misfits' is the perfect series for our Logo viewers who will appreciate how the show's underdogs rise up, take center stage and start blurring the lines of morality, sexuality, gender and reality itself."

Produced by Clerkenwell Films and distributed by BBC Worldwide, the series has enjoyed acclaim from critics, winning multiple BAFTA Television Awards including Best Drama Series in 2010, as well as earning an impressive 1.9 million Facebook fans across the globe, with over a hundred thousand stateside Facebook fans eagerly anticipating the U.S. premiere.
