NEW YORK, NY – August 28, 2012 – SHOWTIME has launched the new season of its animated webisode series DEXTER Early Cuts: All In The Family, available online now on sho.com/earlycuts. A new episode of the webisode series will premiere online every week, leading up to DEXTER’s seventh season premiere on September 30th at 9 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME. Narrated by series star and executive producer Michael C. Hall, written by Dexter producer Scott Reynolds and illustrated by celebrated comic book artist David Mack (“Daredevil,” “Kabuki”), the web series gives DEXTERfans an early look at the life of America’s favorite serial killer with storylines that predate the series.
Early Cuts: All In The Family continues to tell important stories from Dexter Morgan’s past – this season written thematically to tie-in to the season six cliffhanger, as Dexter reflects back on other instances where his sister, Deb, has sensed his darkness. Dexter Early Cuts will also be available via online affiliate portals and to Showtime subscribers on SHOWTIME ON DEMAND®.
In its first two seasons, DEXTER EARLY CUTS delivered an impressive audience online, garnering over 1.4 million views across platforms in season one, and growing to 1.8 million views in its second season.
