The age of "Aquarius" means no waiting, at least for NBC.
The network announced Wednesday that it has decided to release the entire 13-episode season of its 1960s-set crime drama "Aquarius" -- starring David Duchovny as a Los Angeles detective hot on the trail of cult leader
For fans who have gotten used to digging immediately into entire new seasons of streaming series such as the Netflix political drama "House of Cards," this might seem like no big deal.
But it's a major shift for broadcasters, which have more than 65 years invested in deliberately planned rollouts of series premieres.
"With 'Aquarius' we have the opportunity to push some new boundaries to give our audience something no broadcast network has done before,"
There is a caveat: The full season will be available for only one month following the premiere. After that point, viewers will have to wait for new episodes to air in their regular 9 p.m. Thursday slot on NBC.
