Over on Stacy Wilson's often overlooked About Horror subsite (it’s not as gory as some of its contemporaries, but filled with good content nonetheless), Wilson made mention today that BBC America has picked up broadcast rights to the hit British supernatural show, "Hex".
Set in a British boarding school, "Hex" deals with a girl named Cassie who just wants to fit in with her fellow students but can’t seem to get anyone other than her lesbian roommate to notice her. When she accidentally uncovers ancient artifacts at the school, she becomes endowed with mystical powers that allow her to do all sorts of new and interesting things.
All power comes with a price, however, and her fate becomes clear when a fallen angel who is planning to sacrifice her in order to get back into heaven kidnaps her.
The show only lasted two seasons in the UK and came out with a total of 36 episodes, but its fan base seems intent on trying to get it back on the air. Perhaps if it does well in the states we’ll see more of it?
The show starts up on BBC America on June 8th at 10PM EDT, so be sure to check it out if it sounds cool to you. More info is available at the official page for "Hex" on BBC America’s site, click here to dig deeper!
