AMC Networks makes acquisitions for Sundance Channel Global

MUMBAI: AMC Networks International has acquired a wide range of first run original series and miniseries to fuel growth across Sundance Channel Global’s linear and authenticated video-on-demand (VOD) and television everywhere (TVE) services.


The second season of the critically acclaimed Sundance Channel original series The Red Road (6 x 60’) has been acquired from Entertainment One (eOne) as a first window for Latin America, the Middle East and North Africa, and key European territories including France, Iberia, Benelux, Poland and CEE. It will debut less than 24 hours after its premiere in the US.


The award-winning political thriller The Honourable Woman (8 x 60’) starring Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe Award winner Maggie Gyllenhaal has been acquired from BBC Worldwide and will premiere as a first window in Asia (except a second window run in Thailand). 


Also premiering exclusively in Asia will be the period drama based on one of the world’s most notorious crimes, The Great Train Robbery (2 x 90’), acquired from Content Media. Premiering in Dutch Benelux will be the first run original series Catastrophe (6 x 30’) acquired from Avalon and Welcome to Sweden (10 x 30’) acquired from Entertainment One (eOne). 


AMC Global and Sundance Channel Global president Bruce Tuchman said, “These new acquisitions further highlight our commitment to providing distinctive, compelling first run original programming for Sundance Channel audiences worldwide. Alongside our other global hits from AMC Networks, this diverse range of series will help to increase the momentum of our successful international growth strategy. We’ll continue to offer exclusive original series combined with independent films and documentaries fresh from some of the biggest and most prestigious festivals around the world.”
