September 28, 2017
BBC Worldwide has completed a multi-territory deal with Amazon Prime Video for McMafia – the forthcoming eight-part series set in the international world of organised crime. The deal will see Amazon Prime Video premiere the series in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide, excluding the UK, China, US and Canada (North America), when it launches in 2018.
“McMafia is a compelling international story that our Prime Video customers around the world are going to love,” said Brad Beale, Vice President of Prime Video TV Content Acquisition. “With a fascinating premise, talented writers and distinguished cast, McMafia will be a great addition to our stable of high quality hit shows that are available exclusively to Prime members.”
The series was commissioned by the BBC and is co-production between BBC, AMC Networks and Cuba Pictures. The series will premiere on BBC One in the UK in 2018.
