Wuaki.tv, Arrow Films Agree Pact For ‘The Killing’, ‘Gomorrah’ & More

Gomorrah (FT)

A wealth of European drama is being added to Wuaki.tv.

The company has agreed a deal with Arrow Films for a wide range of European television dramas and feature films, TVWise has learned. The pact covers such international series as Braquo; The Killing; The Bridge; Wallander; Israeli drama Prisoners Of War, which formed the basis of Showtime’s Homeland; and Italian drama Gomorrah, which recently finished airing on BSkyB’s Sky Atlantic.

The agreement  is understood to be part of Wuaki’s commitment to offer a wide range of content from around the globe, rather than merely focusing on the output of the major Hollywood studios. It comes only months after Wuaki agreed a deal with HBO for a number of their shows including Game of Thrones and Veep.

“Our users aren’t purely interested in the latest Hollywood blockbusters, we see a desire for a more diverse range of genres and movie styles from all over the globe”, said Simon Homent, Wuaki.tv’s European Content Director. “The addition of some of the most popular cult TV series and movies from across Europe will set Wuaki.tv apart in a market that focuses on Hollywood content, and we will continue adding to it in future.”

“I am delighted to be partnering with Wuaki.tv with our new release feature films and TV series, as well as the best of our library”, added Alex Agran, Arrow Films’ Managing-Director. “Arrow Films is committed to making our content available through the most dynamic of partners and Wuaki.tv offer a very impressive service. We look forward to a successful co-operation together”.
