Paramount+ Arrives in Italy


Paramount+ is officially live in Italy, with more than 8,000 hours of entertainment that combines a slate of Italian series and movies with exclusive global originals.

Global series that will become available on Paramount+ in Italy include The Offer, based on Oscar-winning producer Albert S. Ruddy’s experiences of making The Godfather; The Man Who Fell to Earth, which follows a new alien character who arrives on Earth at a turning point in human evolution; and Tulsa King, with Sylvester Stallone playing the role.

Additionally, Paramount+ will be the home of a selection of new blockbuster films following their theatrical and home entertainment releases, including Top Gun: Maverick.

The roster of Italian originals features Francesco Il Cantico, an immersive reading of one of the most iconic texts dedicated to love, hosted by Oscar-winning Italian star Roberto Benigni; a new season of Vita Da Carlo, which sees Italian comedian and actor Carlo Verdone as director and lead in this series around his life; and Ti Mangio Il Cuore, the film based on Carlo Bonini and Giuliano Foschini’s novel investigation of the mafia in Foggia.

These offerings are in addition to Circeo, Miss Fallaci, Quattordici Giorni, Corpo Libero, Ex On The Beach and Are You The One? Animated series such as the newest installments of Beavis and Butt-Head and South Park will feature local voice talent.

The scripted slates will also include all previously announced scripted originals, among them Bosé, a six-episode series that tells the story of the life of Miguel Bosé.
