Globosat and ONDIRECTV acquire three top dramas
Sky Vision, the production and distribution arm of Sky, has signed a deal with Globosat, the multichannel cable and satellite TV service in Brazil and DIRECTV Latin America in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay y Venezuela, for hit dramas Patrick Melrose, A Discovery of Witches and Fortitude Season 3, it was announced today.
Patrick Melrose and A Discovery of Witches will air on Globoplay, and Fortitude will air on +Globosat. All three dramas will air on ONDIRECTV.
Emmy-nominated drama Patrick Melrose (5 x 60) stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the aristocratic and outrageously funny playboy, who struggles to overcome the damage inflicted by an abusive father and a mother who tacitly condoned the behaviour.
A Discovery of Witches (8 x 60) is adapted from Deborah Harkness' best-selling trilogy of novels, that uncovers a secret underworld of extraordinary beings hiding in plain sight for fear of persecution by humans; and the Arctic epic series Fortitude 3, (4 x 60) will be returning for one final chilling visit.
In addition, Globosat’s channel GNT has acquired Sky Vision’s short-form comedy series The Slot and the documentary Baby Hater, which looks at one woman’s personal decision not to have children.
Guillermina Ortega, Sales Consultant, Sky Vision, Iberia & LatAm said: “We’re excited to have partnered up with Globosat and DIRECTV on these powerful and moving shows, and we’re sure that all these dramas will prove popular with Latin American audiences.”
