Arts Network to Air All Three Seasons During Mystery Alley

Los Angeles, CA - August 31, 2020 - Following Australian crime drama The Code and British political thriller Secret State, Ovation TV, America's only arts network, will next air the critically acclaimed series The Fall, starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan, in its new premier Mystery Alley destination on Saturday nights. Season one will begin airing on Saturday, October 10 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT. Season two will begin airing on Saturday, November 14 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT. Season three will air in Q1 2021.

In her first lead role in an investigative series since The X Files, Gillian Anderson brings the same intelligence and depth of character to her portrayal of Stella Gibson, a successful, highly driven homicide detective. Jamie Dornan (Once Upon A Time, Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette) stars as Paul Spector, the ruthless serial predator she seeks. While chillingly hiding behind the façade of loving husband and father, Spector - who is revealed from the outset - is preying on women in and around Belfast. While the police are stalled in their investigation of these yet unconnected murders, Gibson is drafted in to conduct a 28-day review on secondment from London's Metropolitan Police. Almost immediately, Gibson determines these heinous crimes are all linked to the same person.

Episode descriptions are below:
