New and returning series – details
The Feed S1 Virgin TV 16/09/2019
“A man’s invention of a brain implant that allows people to share thoughts and emotions gets into the wrong hands”. New 10-part series which is co-produced by Liberty Global and Amazon Prime. It will be on Amazon in the US, Canada & some other places though the Amazon date hasn’t yet been announced. Very late notice of the UK date (via TV Wise) though attentive Virgin customers may have seen it last week via this article – which is a bit more detailed. Unfortunately I can’t currently find a trailer to post even though the series is due in 3 days time.
