New paranormal series 'Room 9'

This may have been covered by someone already but while surfing today I came across a new (to me at least) show out of South Africa called Room 9. While I have not seen any full episodes, the website - http://www.room9.co.za/ - has trailers, info, etc., and makes it look like an X-Files meets police procederal type series (or maybe a more serious version of Special Unit 2?). Hopefully Hulu, Syfy, Chiller, ANYBODY, will pick it up to show here (I can dream).

In an alternate, parallel world eerily familiar to our own, in a city that could be Johannesburg or Kampala, Nairobi or Lagos, a war is being waged; a war between light and dark, between good and evil. This is the New Azania. The provinces as we once knew them in South Africa are no more. Instead this new world is divided into Sectors.

On a separate note/rant - why doesn't any U.S. network carry non english or spanish shows from other countries? Is the corporate thinking that the generic U.S. based viewing public are afraid of subtitles, etc.? There is a wealth of fantasy content out there that I am somewhat certain could be purchased and shown for a very modest fee. Is there some reason why Syfy, for example, doesn't run a block of foreign fantasy shows on a Sunday night? Do they think that we, hungry for original content, won't tune in to watch? Since the real BBC have already gone to the trouble of subbing Les Revenants, why can't BBC America lease it run it in place of one less TNG rerun? Why!!! Rant over.
