The subscription streaming service Acorn TV has earlier today announced the acquisition of exclusive US rights to the BBC’s adaptation of Waugh’s novel Decline and Fall. According to reports on the internet, the series will be available for internet streaming in the US on Monday, May 15. The company issued the following statement about its acquisition:
“‘Decline and Fall’ is a perfect addition to our Originals slate. This new BBC One comedy has been getting rave reviews in the UK for its witty script and stellar cast led by Jack Whitehall, David Suchet, and Eva Longoria, so we know U.S. fans will love it as much as we do.”
Whether there are plans for TV broadcast or cable transmission or US DVD sales is not stated.
