All3Media International has signed deals to bring a package of scripted and non-scripted titles to several of Now TV’s VOD services in Hong Kong.
In one deal, Now True picked up various non-scripted titles, including season two of Wonderhood’s My Grandparents’ War, which follows stars such as Keira Knightley and Kit Harington as they discover the stories of their family history during 20th-century conflicts. Other titles in the deal are Lion TV’s Stolen: Catching the Art Thieves and Top Hat Productions’ The Box.
Additional unscripted programs going to Hong Kong are Two Rivers’ Monster: The Mystery of Loch Ness; Spun Gold’s Harry & William: What Went Wrong and Inside Beverly Hills—The Land of the Rich and Famous; and Wonderhood’s The Airport: Back in the Skies.
In a separate deal, Now Studio acquired Drama Republic’s The English, starring Chaske Spencer and Emily Blunt. It also licensed Five Mile Films’ The Dog Academy, tracking the journey of misbehaving mutts and their owners, and North One’s Fifth Gear Recharged, a car show focused exclusively on electric vehicles.
“It’s fantastic to see such a wide variety of programming heading to Hong Kong through these new scripted and non-scripted package deals,” said Kit Yow, VP of sales for Asia at All3Media International. “Hong Kong’s ever-evolving television landscape presents a wealth of opportunities for all our genres—from our premium factual documentaries Stolen: Catching the Art Thieves and The Box and star-powered factual-entertainment My Grandparents’ War and stunning scripted series in The English. These new acquisitions [find a] fantastic partner with a broad range of content, who we know will bring viewers the best series and specials from around the world.”
