'Primeval' bought by BBC America
BBC America has purchased the first two seasons of ITV's science fiction series Primeval.

Multichannel News reports that the broadcaster, which already screens Torchwood and Robin Hood, will begin transmitting Primeval in August.

BBC Worldwide America president Gareth Ancier hailed their new acquisition, which has already been commissioned for a third season by ITV following consistent ratings. "Primeval is a perfect addition to our successful Saturday night menu of sci-fi and adventure," he said. "We think our audience will be excited by the addition of this prehistoric thriller - one of the latest big hits from the U.K."
