Comedy Central Latin America has inked a deal with all3media international for the award-winning comedy series Fleabag, written by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

In addition to Waller-Bridge, Fleabag stars Olivia Colman, Sian Clifford, Bill Paterson, Brett Gelman, Andrew Scott, Hugh Skinner and Hugh Dennis. It is produced by Two Brothers Pictures for BBC Three and Amazon Prime in association with DryWrite Productions and all3media international. The series is slated to premiere on Comedy Central Latin America in 2020, with the exact date yet to be announced.

Tiago Worcman, senior VP and brand manager for music and entertainment brands at ViacomCBS Networks Americas, said: “Comedy Central Latin America is always looking to offer the best comedy content out there, and Fleabag is unique on its own. We are thrilled to be welcoming this show to our programming roster and further reinforce our position as one of the best comedy destinations in the region.”

Janel Downing, VP of sales for Latin America at all3media international, added: “We’re very pleased to add another key deal for Fleabag to its global success story, straight after its two honors at the Golden Globes earlier this month and its incredible six wins at the Primetime Emmys. As poignant as it is funny, Fleabag is one of the most talked-about and in-demand television series of recent years, and we know it will prove as popular with Comedy Central viewers in Latin America as it has with audiences around the world.”
