By Dan French, TV Reporter
Sci Fi has secured the first-run pay-TV rights to Warehouse 13 from NBC Universal International Television Distribution, it has been announced.
The series, starring Eddie McClintock and Joanne Kelly, centres around two Secret Service agents who find themselves abruptly transferred to a top-secret storage facility.
"We’ve had a fantastic run of highly anticipated, much talked about premiere series on the channel this year - and Warehouse 13 is no exception," said NBCU Global Network’s head of channels James Newton.
"There was a tremendous buzz ahead of its launch in the US and the first night ratings are testament to what a fantastic show it is. The special effects and exciting plot twists make it a real gem for our autumn schedule."
The sci-fi series joins Knight Rider, Dollhouse and Legend Of The Seeker in landing a UK premiere on the channel.
