Virgin 1 has picked up the first-run UK rights to comedy drama series Chuck from WBITV.
The show, airing on NBC in the US, stars Zachary Levi as an ordinary guy who becomes a spy after unwittingly downloading the CIA’s most confidential secrets to his brain.
It has already been picked up for a full season by NBC after averaging 8 million viewers in the Monday, 8pm slot opposite Prison Break.
“Both action-packed and hilarious, Chuck is the perfect show for Virgin 1’s audience,” said Amy Barham, head of acquisitions for Virgin 1. “We are thrilled to have secured the show as part of our 2008 line up.”
Chuck is executive produced by The O.C.’s Josh Schwartz.
