The comedy series Catastrophe will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime in the U.S., the company has announced.
All six-episodes of its first season will debut on the service on June 19. It will also be available to Amazon Prime customers in the U.K. later this year.
The half-hour show garnered acclaim when it debuted on Channel 4 in England in January.
Created by and starring American comedian and author Rob Delaney (Key & Peele) and Irish actress Sharon Horgan (Pulling), it tells the story of a couple that is dealing with an unexpected pregnancy after they hook up on a business trip to London. The series also stars Ashley Jensen (Ugly Betty) as Horgan’s unpleasant friend Fran, as well as Carrie Fisher as Delaney’s eccentric Bostonian mother. Mark Bonnar (Shetland), Jonathan Forbes (Titanic: Blood and Steel), Daniel Lapaine (Zero Dark Thirty), Marta Barrio (The Trip), and Sarah Niles (Beautiful People) are also featured.
Catastrophe is executive produced by Richard Allen-Turner (Workaholics), Kara Baker (Iliza Shlezinger: Freezing Hot), Delaney, Horgan and Jon Thoday (Last Week Tonight with John Oliver). The series is an Avalon Television production, made with co-producers Birdbath Productions and Merman.
