HOOQ in a deal with Sony Pictures Television has acquired the new series, Carter, a light-hearted detective procedural that blends small-town charm with big-city crime. The series premiered on 6 April, with new episodes dropping every Friday. HOOQ is the first to premiere the series worldwide and Carter marks the second Hollywood Original to arrive on the service following the gripping police drama, The Oath, from Sony Pictures Television.
Produced by Amaze Film + Television, Carter tells the story of Harley Carter (Jerry O’Connell), a detective on a hit American TV show who is forced to return to his sleepy hometown after an embarrassing public meltdown in Hollywood. Upon his return, Carter taps into his acting experience to become a real-life detective, partnering with his two best friends, Sam Shaw (Sydney Poitier Heartsong) and Dave Leigh (Kristian Bruun).
Each episode will be a self-contained crime story, delivering mysteries as well as the occasional murder, and surrounded by fun and quirky characters. Carter is also a story about true friendship as our protagonist returns to his hometown and faces the people of his past, who all took different paths in their lives but remain the best of friends. But, above it all, viewers can expect a smartly written detective drama delivered with a tinge of comedy.
Carter stars Jerry O’Connell (Stand By Me, Sliders, Mission To Mars and the latest season of The Big Bang Theory), Sydney Poitier Heartsong (Death Proof, True Crime), Kristian Bruun (Orphan Black), and John Bourgeois (Ginger Snaps, X-Men: Apocalypse).
DC fans will be thrilled this month as well, as HOOQ also strengthens its library of DC shows (Supergirl, The Flash and Arrow), with the latest addition: Krypton, a new DC series set 200 years before Superman came to Earth, which premiered on March 29 with two episodes. New episodes will then release on HOOQ every Friday, within 24 hours of US telecast.
