NUVOtv, the Latino-focused English-language entertainment network, has inked a content licensing agreement for the basic cable syndication rights to the Showtime drama Dexter.

The network will roll out episodes for all eight seasons presented uncut and in their entirety.

"We are absolutely thrilled that NUVOtv has acquired the rights to air the first window of this groundbreaking series on basic cable," said Bill Hilary, executive vice president of programming at NUVOtv.

He added: "Dexter's brilliant ensemble of Latino cast members, in lead and supporting roles, throughout all eight seasons, will resonate positively with our young NUVOtv audience. Having been the No 1 rated series on Showtime with the Latino audience, this multi-award-winning drama is a great addition to the slate of new original series planned for NUVOtv over the next year."

The series features several Latino actors, including recent Alma-award winner Lauren Velez, David Zayas, Aimee Garcia, Christian Camargo, Edward James Olmos and Jimmy Smits. In support of the series' January premiere on NUVOtv, the network has launched a dedicated area for the show on its Website.
