During his keynote conversation at Mipcom in Cannes Monday, HBO Chairman and CEO Richard Plepler announced that the HBO U.S. service will be making available to its customers some of the most acclaimed international, original series from HBO Europe, HBO Latin America and HBO Asia. Beginning in December, two series from each of the regions will arrive on the U.S. streaming services HBO GO and HBO NOW, as well as HBO On Demand.
“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,” said Plepler in the announcement.
U.S. audiences can get caught up in great international series like Wasteland (from the Czech Republic), Pakt (Poland), The Teenage Psychic (Taiwan), Halfworlds (Indonesia and Thailand), and El Hipnotizador and La Secreta de las Parejas from HBO Latin America.
