Walter Presents Lat Am drama

Deutschland 83

Deutschland 83 is the highest-rating foreign-language drama to air on UK TV

Channel 4’s foreign drama VoD service Walter Presents has acquired six titles from HBO Latin America, Globo and SpaceWoW.

The programming from Mexico, Chile, Argentina and Brazil includes HBO Latin America series Prófugos, which follows the story of four men whose destiny changes when a drug deal goes disastrously wrong.

Two Brazilian series – comedy FDP (Son of a Bitch) and the 13-part Magnifica 70 – also come under the HBO Latin America deal, as does Mexican family crime drama Sr Avila.

Meanwhile, Walter Presents has picked up 13-part crime thriller Merciless, written by Glória Perez and produced and distributed by Brazilian broadcaster Globo. It follows the exploits of a handsome but dangerous psychopath and the police’s attempts to uncover his true identity. The series is currently available to view exclusively on Walter Presents.

Finally, the VoD service has taken Argentinian thriller Pure Evil from SpaceWow.

Launched on January 3, Walter Presents’ Deutschland 83 has already become the highest-rating foreign drama in UK TV history.

The free service is available via All 4, Channel 4’s digital hub, and is an exclusive partnership between Channel 4 and Global Series Network, founded and managed by Jason Thorp, Jo McGrath and Walter Iuzzolino.
