Presto in August

A Place to Call Home an SVOD exclusive while Glee season 5 tunes up; plus Louis season 4 arrives and The Affair starts, only on Presto

Presto today announced key programming premiering in August, featuring the exclusive SVOD arrival of A Place to Call Home seasons 1-2 coming on 21 August. The landmark Australian drama, set in Country New South Wales in the years following World War II, follows Sarah Adams (Marta Dusseldorp), who has come back to Australia after 20 years overseas to start a new life. The period series examines love and loss against the backdrop of social change during the 1950s.

The arrival of A Place to Call Home on Presto is the perfect way to see the series before its highly anticipated third series premieres on Foxtel’s SoHo Channel.

Also coming to Presto is the addition of Glee season 5. Glee takes viewers to McKinley High School to experience the hopes and realities of the school’s glee club in this highly-praised musical comedy –drama that pits ambitious and talented students against the challenge of the harshness of high-school life. Glee season 5 starts on 2 August

Comedy fan favourite Louis C.K. plays a fictionalised version of himself in Louis, and Presto adds season 4 to its line-up on 19 August. Louis takes a hilarious look at the life of a newly single father as he navigates the ins and outs of everyday life in the big city. The series includes cameo appearances of other well-known comics who also play ‘versions’ of themselves.

Finally, Presto announced it will start The Affair beginning on 10 August. Winner of the 72nd Golden Globe Award for Best TV Drama, The Affair explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair. The provocative series is told separately from the male and female perspectives along with the personal memory biases and reactions one might expect.
