Final season of Dexter and The Walking Dead season 5 added along with Halt and Catch Fire, Wentworth season 3 and the world premiere of Let’s Talk About made for Presto
Presto today announced signature programming set to stream in October, starting with the arrival of the final season of Dexter. Michael C. Hall (Six Feet Under) stars as Dexter Morgan, a blood splatter expert who doesn’t just solve murders; he commits them. The arrival of the final season wraps up the story of Dexter, the ultimate anti-hero/serial killer committed to only murdering the guilty, and means Presto subscribers can watch all seven seasons of series.
Presto also adds The Walking Dead season 5 to its exclusive line up of this internationally acclaimed zombie-drama based on the comic book series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard. The Walking Dead is one of the most watched dramas on Presto and is known as much for its blood-spattered shuffling zombies, gore and violence as it is for its emotional, character-driven and dramatic story-telling.
Let’s Talk About, the ambitious short series produced by writer, director and actor Matilda Brown, will have its world premiere on Presto in late October. The 10-part series about being “up the duff” in a relationship that’s only just begun also stars Matilda’s father Bryan Brown (Cocktail) and Richard Davies (Offspring) with each episode taking a hilarious and cheeky look at what to expect when you’re unexpectedly expecting.
Other hit programming arriving on Presto in October includes:
- Halt and Catch Fire (season 1) – Return to 1980s where the PC era is about to catch fire and a renegade trio risks everything for their vision of building a computer that can change the future;
- Wentworth (seasons 1-3) – Draws on characters and storylines of the iconic Prisoner series as it builds its own brave and bold, contemporary narrative behind the walls of Wentworth prison;
- Mad Men (seasons 1-7) – Ad exec Don Draper navigates the high-pressure world of Madison Avenue advertising firms balancing his image of a top ad pro with his role as a family man;
- 30 Rock (seasons 1-7) – Based on the backstage antics at Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock centres on Liz Lemon (Tina Fey), head writer for a live sketch-comedy as she juggles all the egos that surround her while trying to chase her own dreams.
