A package of six premium British dramas from Endemol Shine International will premiere through Turner Latin America in the region, following a series of deals signed at Natpe Miami.
Endemol Shine International announced that it has sold six premium British dramas to Turner Latin America, following Natpe Miami 2020.
The deals were brokered by Veronique Verges, SVP of Latin America and US Hispanic at Endemol Shine International.
Deadwater Fell is headlining the shows heading to Latin America, having just launched on Channel 4 in the UK this month and already sold to North America in a deal with Acorn TV.
Produced by Kudos and filmed in picturesque Scotland, the darkly gripping drama’s stellar ensemble cast features David Tennant, Cush Jumbo, Matthew McNulty and Anna Madeley. The miniseries is created and written by Daisy Coulam and directed by Lynsey Miller.
Other Kudos dramas in the package include Kit Harington mini-series Gunpowder, the fast paced thriller set in the 16th century telling the tale of the Gunpowder plot, a third and final series of Tin Star starring Tim Roth and sees the Worth family return to the U.K. to confront their history, along with Romola Garai, Ben Whishaw and Dominic West led favourite The Hour.
The deal also includes Guerrilla, written by Oscar winner John Ridley and starring Freida Pinto and Babou Ceesay and will mark the first airing of the drama in Latin America. The series was originally produced by Fifty Fathoms and co-produced by ABC Signature for Sky Atlantic and Showtime.
Psychological thriller The Fall, starring Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan, which examines the lives of two hunters — one is a serial killer who preys on victims in and around Belfast, Northern Ireland, and the other is a female detective drafted from the London Metropolitan Police to catch him is also part of the package.
The deal was agreed as Endemol Shine International following NAPTE Miami 2020.
Veronique Verges, SVP of Latin America and US Hispanic at Endemol Shine International said: “This 50-hour package of scripted programming showcases the very best of British drama and on and off-screen talent. With high-profile cast including David Tennant, Cush Jumbo, Kit Harington, Tim Roth, Ben Whishaw, Freida Pinto, Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan in lead roles, we have every confidence these iconic and attractive series will draw tremendous viewers to Turner Latin America.”
