The BBC Studios- and ITV-owned service is gearing up to launch series such as Sherwood, Karen Pirie, Stonehouse, Suspect, The Curse and The Thief, His Wife & the Canoe in North America this year.

It recently came on board ITV’s forthcoming Cary Grant biopic, with Jason Isaacs cast in the lead role, while it is also involved in new seasons of The Cleaner, Crime, Hope Street, The Responder, Sister Boniface, Grace, The Bay and Shetland.

It is also on board six-part drama ITV drama Three Little Birds, inspired by the stories of Sir Lenny Henry’s mother Winifred, and Passenger, which is being produced for ITVX, ITV’s new streaming service.

Earlier this year BritBox International said it would be tripling its investment in programming and doubling its marketing spend to expand its offering of high-quality British storytelling.

BritBox International is distinct from its UK counterpart BritBox UK, which is now being absorbed into ITVX, is present in the US, Canada and Australia and has added South Africa, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland over the past 12 months.

“BritBox is the platinum standard for trusted British entertainment, the only streaming connoisseur who creates and curates this level of extraordinary storytelling. We attract the very best British talent and creatives of all ages because they know what a truly loyal and targeted fan base BritBox has built globally,” said Reemah Sakaan CEO at BritBox International at its TCA presentation in New York.

“We know our audience and what they want, which results in projects that are riveting, entertaining and, overall, unmissable.”
