Lifeline Joins Channel 4’s Walter Presents Lineup


Atresmedia Television’s Lifeline, a thriller produced by Globomedia for Antena 3, has been added to Channel 4’s Walter Presents programming block.

Lifeline is slated to make its Walter Presents premiere on Channel 4 on Sunday, April 15, marking the second Spanish show to air on the U.K. network. Channel 4 will broadcast the first episode of the first season in its dedicated Walter Presents block on Sundays at 10 p.m. Shortly after, the entire series will become available on the network’s AVOD service.

This deal was signed by Global Series and Imagina International Sales, Grupo Mediapro’s international rights agency.

“After the huge success of Locked Up we are delighted to welcome another blockbuster Spanish series from Atresmedia—it is just as slick, compulsive and addictive as its predecessor,” said Walter Iuzzolino, curator of Walter Presents.
