During his keynote conversation in Cannes at Mipcom, HBO Chairman and CEO Richard Plepler announced that some of the most acclaimed international, original series from HBO Latin America, HBO Europe and HBO Asia will arrive in December on the U.S. streaming services HBO GO and HBO NOW as well as HBO On Demand.
The series from Latin America that will be available are “El Hipnotizador” (season 1 and 2) and the new Brazilian production “La Vida Secreta de las Parejas”. Czech Republic mini-series “Wasteland”, Polish series “Pakt”, Taiwan series “The teenage psychic” and the original production of Indonesia and Thailand “Halfworlds” will also be part of the offer.
“Working with talented local writers, directors and producers, our international networks are creating programming that live up to the high quality storytelling that is expected of the HBO brand. This programming regularly outperforms even Game of Thrones’ record audience numbers in their respective markets. I am tremendously proud to bring such a selection of programs to our U.S. audience,” stated Plepler.
