SPT’s Unforgettable Heads to Asia


HONG KONG: Sony Pictures Television (SPT) has licensed the crime drama Unforgettable to several broadcasters across the Asia-Pacific region, including WOWOW in Japan, STAR in India and TVNZ in New Zealand.

Unforgettable will premiere on May 8 on STAR, this summer on WOWOW and later this year on TVNZ. The series will also return in Australia on NINE next week and has been sold in more than 150 countries. In the U.S., the CBS commissioned series is currently number one among total viewers in its time spot. It is produced by Timberman/Beverly Productions and CBS Television Studios in association with SPT, which oversees distribution of the series outside the U.S. Unforgettable follows an ex-cop who remembers everything she’s experienced in perfect detail due to hyperthymesia, an extremely rare condition in which the brain recalls detailed events by date, often back to childhood.

“SPT consistently offers audiences compelling, engaging, high-quality programming and Unforgettable delivers just that,” said Angel Orengo, the senior VP of distribution at Asia Pacific SPT. “Its mystery and originality coupled with the smoldering smarts of lead character Poppy Montgomery will continue to grab the attention of millions of viewers across our region.”
