Viacom-owned cable channel Logo has acquired U.S. distribution rights for the British sci-fi series, “Misfits.”

Logo plans to air all four seasons of the U.K. show beginning July 19.

"We're proud to introduce the U.S. television audience to this beloved series, which is like the mutant offspring of 'True Blood' and 'X-Men,'" says Marc Leonard, senior vice president of multiplatform programming, Logo. "'Misfits' is the perfect series for our Logo viewers, who will appreciate how the show's underdogs rise up, take center stage and start blurring the lines of morality, sexuality, gender and reality itself."

The sci-fi series about a group of law-breaking 20-somethings who are suddenly vested with supernatural powers during a freak electrical storm, is produced by Clerkenwell Films and distributed by BBC Worldwide. “Misfists” has enjoyed acclaim from critics, winning multiple BAFTA Television Awards including Best Drama Series in 2010.
