NuvoTV will begin airing Dexter beginning January 13, 2014 — airing uncut all eight seasons of the serial killer drama that ended its original run on Showtime in September with record viewership numbers. The content licensing agreement unveiled today is the second part of what likely will be a three-part syndication plan that we’re hearing will include a third basic cable window. The main part of the deal came in October, when Netflix announced it had struck a deal with CBS to stream Dexter – the first four seasons became available on the streaming series October 31, with Seasons 5-8 coming online January 1. NuvoTV is an interesting fit for the series, whose Miami setting and several Latino castmembers — among them Lauren Velez, David Zayas, Angel Juan Marcos Batista, Aimee Garcia, Christian Camargo, Edward James Olmos and Jimmy Smits — jibe well with the English-language network’s self-described “modern Latino” audience. The network has been boosting up its original programming plans for the next year, most recently inking a development deal with Mario Lopez to continue his series One-On-One, greenlight his new one Salsa In The City and create three more new shows.
