Sky Living to rebrand as Sky Witness, picks up Patrick Dempsey drama

This is one for UK readers.

Sky Living has always been a bi of a strange channel. Acquired from Flextech many years ago, it kept the Living moniker even though much of its content has been swish American shows in the crime drama genre (hello Elementary).

Now the network is sorting the channel out. According to Deadline, the channel will be renamed as Sky Witness in August. Along with the name change, the network will invest heavily in new programming.

The broadcaster has acquired a number of new titles including Fox’s Ryan Murphy-produced 9-1-1, Shonda Rhimes’ legal drama For The People, Alan Cummings’ Instinct and MGM’s ten-part, Patrick Dempsey-fronted The Truth About The Harry Quebert Affair.
