The series stars Omar Epps, Frances Fisher, Matt Craven, Devin Kelley, Mark Hildreth, Samaire Armstrong, Sam Hazeldine, Landon Gimenez and Kurtwood Smith.

UKTV’s Head of acquisitions and co-productions Alexandra Finlay said: “Resurrection was one of ABC’s break-out hits this past season, and I’m thrilled our collaboration with Disney UK and Ireland continues as we bring this show to Watch.

“The plot for Resurrection is full of intrigue and unexpected twists”, said Steve North, General Manager of Watch. “The series makes for compelling viewing throwing the viewer into a world of the unimaginable, as those who were thought dead come back to life 30 years after they have been buried.”
