Globo's 'Merciless' & 'The Hunter' premiere on U.K. & U.S. VoD


MUMBAI: Globo?s series ?Merciless? and ?The Hunter? are now part of the Walter Presents VoD service, which is dedicated to foreign drama and comedy in the UK and U.S. The service is part of Channel 4?s online platform. The licensing of the series to the streaming service is part of Globo?s strategy to produce and distribute creative and quality content covering a range of different platforms.

The Brazilian series are available in the platform in Portuguese language with subtitles in English. Written by award-winner Gl?ria Perez (?India - a Love Story? and ?The Clone?), ?Merciless? revolves around the psychopath Edu (Bruno Gagliasso, ?Rising Sun?), a handsome, smart and articulated man who uses all of his charm to hide his real and dark personality. Responsible for a series of murders that baffle the police, Edu captivates the emotionally unstable Ray (D?bora Falabella, ?Brazil Avenue?), who falls in love with the young man while doesn?t even notice his other side. In the international market, the series has already been licensed in 4K to the Korean group EPG. In addition, SIC, one of Portugal?s largest open TV networks and a large consumer of Globo?s content, has also invested in the show.

?The Hunter? is a breathtaking 13-episode series that tells the story of Andr? ? played by charming actor Cau? Reymond (?Above Justice? and ?Brazil Avenue?) ?, a cop who is wrongfully imprisoned. When he gets out of jail, he is driven by a single goal: tracking leads to prove his innocence. He starts working as a bounty hunter after he is kicked out of the force, and his relentless search for the truth in the criminal underworld begins. Packed with action and sensuality, the thriller was broadcast by SIC and boosted the Portuguese network?s ratings by 55 per cent during its premiere.
