Heroes, the latest smash hit show to rock the US, will be debuting on the Ukâ€™s Sci-Fi channel on February 19th. The show centres around a group of ordinary people who gain extraordinary powers. Thereâ€™s a cheerleader with the ability to recover from bodily injuries or disease at a superhuman rate, a Tokyo programmer who can affect the flow of time and a Los Angeles police officer with the ability to hear other people’s thoughts among others.
The Heroes become involved in each other’s lives as they learn how to master their individual powers and save mankind from destruction. The series’ antagonist, Sylar, is tracking and killing super-powered humans and the heroes must evade his attempts at capture.
When the series premiered in the United States on NBC, it was the night’s most-watched program among adults 18-49 and attracted an audience of 14.3 million viewers and received the highest rating for any NBC drama premiere in five years
The BBC have also acquired the rights for terrestrial viewing and will air the series after it has been shown on the Sci-Fi Channel.
