But more than 300 hours of Walter Presents content are being absorbed into PBS Masterpiece, an add-on channel for Amazon Prime subscribers.
Contact is an eight-episode French series about a psychic US convict who’s released from prison to work for the FBI, but flees to France.
The Court is a noir-ish 12-episode Iegal drama from Iceland. The first six episodes debut today.
The PBS Masterpiece channel will add four more Walter Presents series over subsequent Mondays this month:
Dead Beautiful, a nine-episode French police drama, next Monday, March 11;
Inspector Falke, a seven-episode German detective series, on March 25.
The PBS Masterpiece channel, of course, also packs plenty of British titles — derived from the PBS series also titled Masterpiece, other PBS series, and even movies. Some examples include Victoria, Margaret: The Rebel Princess and Northanger Abbey.
Amazon Prime subscribers can get PBS Masterpiece for an additional $5.99 a month following a seven-day free trial.
