ITV signs deal with Disney for shows to air on ITV2 and ITVX

ITV strikes deal with Disney Entertainment for Under the Banner of Heaven and Extraordinary.

ITV has announced an agreement with Disney Entertainment which makes the broadcaster the ‘free-to-air home’ in the UK of the drama Under the Banner of Heaven starring Andrew Garfield, and the first series of the British comedy series Extraordinary.

Under the Banner of Heaven, created by Dustin Lance Black, stars Andrew Garfield and Daisy Edgar-Jones. The series was inspired by the true crime bestseller by Jon Krakauer, and follows the events that led to the 1984 murder of Brenda Wright Lafferty (Edgar-Jones) and her baby daughter in a suburb in the Salt Lake Valley, Utah.

Comedy series Extraordinary, written by series creator and co-executive producer Emma Moran, is set in a world where everyone develops a power on their 18th birthday… everyone, that is, except for Jen (Máiréad Tyers).

The series sees 25-year-old Jen adrift in a big, confusing world and armed with nothing but a bit of hope, a lot of desperation, and her flatmates as she begins her journey to find her superpower. Also stars Sofia Oxenham, Bilal Hasna, Luke Rollason and Siobhán McSweeney.

“Under the Banner of Heaven will stream on ITVX with Extraordinary airing on both ITVX and ITV2. Both will launch in the first half of 2024.” – ITV
