Foxtel acquires 500-plus hours of content in multi-year Walter Presents deal

The slate of international titles, sourced from France, Spain, Italy and the Nordics, has been made available on-demand on Foxtel and streamer Binge.

Under the terms of the deal, Foxtel will have exclusive use of the Walter Presents brand and the ability to promote the featured series on its platform, including introductions from co-founder and curator Walter Iuzzolino.

Marshall Heald, Foxtel group executive director of entertainment, said: “The new agreement with Walter Presents will offer our millions of subscribers across Foxtel and Binge first-run, exclusive access to premium international drama. We are constantly looking for new ways to expand our content offering – and this new international drama slate will offer series and films that have never been available in Australia until now.”

This extensive deal builds on an initial agreement made two years ago, when Walter Presents partnered with the Foxtel Group on Hotel Portofino.

Walter Presents co-founder and curator Walter Iuzzolino said: “In my dual role as producer of original English-language drama and curator of premium international series, I always relish the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded partners such as the Foxtel Group, whose taste palette is aligned with ours.”
