Blue Ant Picks Up FBI, Charmed for Asia


ADVERTISEMENT

Blue Ant Media has licensed the new Dick Wolf-produced drama FBI and the reimagining of the hit series Charmed, among other shows, to air on Blue Ant Entertainment across Asia.

FBI will make its debut in Asia this month. The new series is a fast-paced drama about the inner workings of the New York office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Produced by Universal Television in association with CBS Television Studios, FBI is distributed by CBS Studios International.

Michael Weatherly returns as the trial consultant Dr. Bull in the third season of Bull on Blue Ant Entertainment. Bull is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Amblin Television and Stage 29 Productions and is distributed by CBS Studios International. Charmed, based on the original series, is from CBS Television Studios in association with Propagate Content and is distributed internationally by CBS Studios International. Both programs will air express from the U.S., within 48 hours of their American debuts this October.

The X Factor UK, which has been airing exclusively and the same day as the U.K. on Blue Ant Entertainment, will remain with the network until 2020.

Beatrice Lee, CEO of Blue Ant Media Asia Pacific, said: “We have always remained committed to give our audience quality entertainment and the best content for their enjoyment. Securing the multiyear exclusive rights to The X Factor UK and bringing in new shows and fresh seasons from one of the top American producers, CBS Studios International, are just one of the many investments we are very happy to make to further strengthen the programming lineup of our channels.”
