The Hour Season Notes
Ovation TV, America's only arts network, has set Saturday, July 17th as the network premiere date for the first season of the award-winning drama series The Hour. Starring Ben Whishaw (No Time to Die, FX's Fargo), Dominic West (Stateless, The Crown), and Romola Garai (writer/director of Amulet), The Hour is a widely acclaimed original, sexy thriller set in the world of television journalism in the 1950s. The arts network will begin airing season one on Saturday, July 17 at 7pm ET / 4pm PT during the network's Mystery Alley programming block, its linear destination that celebrates the craft of mystery storytelling.
The series is a behind-the-scenes drama and espionage thriller set in Cold War-era England that centers on a journalist, a producer, and an anchorman for an investigative news program. With the Suez Crisis brewing in the background, a small team of British journalists launches an hourlong investigative news show on BBC television called THE HOUR. Producer Bel Rowley (Romola Garai) pulls in Freddie Lyon (Ben Whishaw), the best reporter she knows, to serve as the show's home affairs correspondent, while the handsome and charismatic Hector Madden (Dominic West) gets the coveted position of presenter.
