Shaw Media has announced that critically acclaimed USA Network series Mr. Robot will finally get its Canadian premiere on Showcase beginning Friday, September 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and best of all, Canadians can catch the pilot online now on Showcase.ca and ETCanada.com.
Mr. Robot is described as a “techno thriller” that follows programmer Elliot (Rami Malek, The Pacific) who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and a vigilante hacker by night. The series is created and written by Sam Esmail and also stars Christian Slater, Portia Doubleday, Martin Wallstrom and Carly Chaikin (Suburgatory).
The 10-episode first season began airing the U.S. earlier this summer and is by far my favourite show, of not only this summer but all of 2015 so far. Be sure to check it out A.S.A.P.!
