BBC AMERICA ANNOUNCES SEASON TWO GREENLIGHT OF SCRIPTED ORIGINAL SERIES "DIRK GENTLY'S HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY"

New York, New York - November 21, 2016 - BBC AMERICA announced today the second season greenlight of original scripted series Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency.

Season one will finale on December 10 at 9/8c.

Sarah Barnett, President of BBC AMERICA, commented, "Outlandishly different, Dirk Gently has hit a sweet spot with BBCA fans. With Elijah Wood and Samuel Barnett's chemistry as oddball detective/sidekick duo, and our creators promising ever greater genius-weird cosmic mystery in the next case, we're happy to announce more of this truly original and entertaining show."

The series is set in the unexpected world of the hyper, absurd, eponymous detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett). Dirk Gently, is a serialized comedic thriller that follows the bizarre adventures of eccentric "holistic" detective Dirk Gently and his reluctant assistant Todd (Elijah Wood), as they wend their way through one big, seemingly insane mystery a season, crossing unlikely paths with a bevy of wild and sometimes dangerous characters, each episode landing them a few random steps closer to uncovering the truth.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency is a co-production of AMC Studios, IDEATE MEDIA and IDW Entertainment, with Circle of Confusion producing for BBC AMERICA. Max Landis writes and executive produces the series with Robert Cooper serving as executive producer and showrunner. Arvind Ethan David and Zainir Aminullah for IDEATE MEDIA executive produce along with Ted Adams and David Ozer for IDW and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs for Circle of Confusion.

BBC AMERICA's robust slate of originals continue through the new year with upcoming premieres including the Doctor Who Christmas Special on December 25 and Planet Earth II on January 28. The fifth and final season of hit series Orphan Black is currently in production and will premiere in 2017.
