Foxtel Group Pacts with Walter Presents


A new multiyear partnership will supply Foxtel Group with more than 500 hours of exclusive international drama programming from Walter Presents, to be made available to watch on-demand on Foxtel and stream on BINGE.

Foxtel Group subscribers will be gaining access to Girlsquad (France), The Drought (Spain), Spiral of Lies (Belgium), New Nurses (Denmark), Thou Shalt Not Kill (Italy) and Honour (Sweden).

The deal also offers Foxtel Group exclusive use of the Walter Presents brand and on-platform promotion of the featured series, including introductions from Co-Founder and Curator Walter Iuzzolino.

Foxtel Group’s executive director of entertainment, Marshall Heald, said: “The new agreement with Walter Presents will offer our millions of subscribers across Foxtel and BINGE first-run, exclusive access to premium international drama. We are constantly looking for new ways to expand our content offering—and this new international drama slate will offer series and films that have never been available in Australia until now.”

Iuzzolino said: “In my role dual role as producer of original English language drama and curator of premium international series, I always relish the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded partners such as the Foxtel Group, whose taste palette is aligned with ours.

“Two years ago, we partnered with the Foxtel Group on our smash hit English-language series Hotel Portofino, and I am absolutely delighted to be building on that by expanding our partnership to encompass a wealth of fantastic international scripted dramas curated under the Walter Presents label which audiences will be able to enjoy on an exclusive basis for years to come through Foxtel and BINGE.”
