Sky Vision Lands Drama Deals in LatAm


Sky Vision has licensed the dramas Patrick Melrose, A Discovery of Witches and Fortitude season three into Latin America.

Patrick Melrose will air on Globoplay in Brazil. The Emmy-nominated drama stars Benedict Cumberbatch as a playboy who struggles to overcome the damage inflicted by an abusive father and a mother who tacitly condoned the behavior.

A Discovery of Witches, adapted from Deborah Harkness’ best-selling trilogy of novels, will also air in Brazil on Globoplay. Season three of Fortitude will air on +Globosat. All three dramas will also broadcast on OnDIRECTV Latin America in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.

In addition, Globosat’s channel GNT acquired Sky Vision’s short-form comedy series The Slot and the documentary Baby Hater, which looks at one woman’s personal decision not to have children.

Guillermina Ortega, sales consultant at Sky Vision for Iberia and LatAm, said: “We’re excited to have partnered up with Globosat and DIRECTV on these powerful and moving shows, and we’re sure that all these dramas will prove popular with Latin American audiences.”
