MHz Networks Announces the Long-Awaited Premiere of Two New Episodes of Detective Montalbano on SVOD and DVD Tuesday June 28, 2016

On Tuesday, June 28, 2016, MHz Networks will premiere the long-awaited new episodes of the beloved Italian television series Detective Montalbano (Il Commissario Montalbano) on its proprietary SVOD platform, MHz Choice and on DVD.

Italian actor Luca Zingaretti reprises his iconic role as Salvo Montalbano in these 27th and 28th episodes of the international blockbuster series set in the fictional Sicilian city of Vigata. As the honest and independent police chief with a penchant for fine food, Montalbano balances the demands of his northern Italian superiors and the realities of small-town crime. The work brings him and his deputies across the paths of unforgettable, uniquely Sicilian characters. MHz Choice is the exclusive SVOD platform for streaming the entire Detective Montalbano series which is also available on DVD and transactional video on demand.  Episodes 27 and 28 will also be available day-and-date on DVD in addition to MHz Choice. All episodes of the series are presented unedited in Italian with English subtitles. Detective Montalbano is produced for Italian television by Palomar, distributed by Rome-based media giant RAI COM, and is based on the international best-selling mystery novels by Andrea Camilleri. “We’re thrilled to have these great new episodes on MHz Choice. The characters keep getting richer and more interesting with every installment,” said Frederick Thomas, CEO of MHz Networks, LLC. “Detective Montalbano is the cornerstone of our long-standing relationship with RAI.”
