Amazon has acquired two new television series exclusively for Prime Video as part of a new deal with Disney EMEA.
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, a story about two teenagers who are awakened to newly acquired superpowers, will be available on Prime Video in UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Italy in June, a day after the US premiere. The deal also brings sci-fi mystery The Crossing to Prime Video in the UK and Ireland on April 3rd, and to Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Austria on April 27th. The Crossing tells the story of a group of refugees from a war-torn country 250 years in the future who seek asylum in an American town.
“This marks another step forward in bringing best-in-class TV shows to Prime Video customers in Europe,” says Jay Marine, VP Prime Video EU. “We are thrilled to be bringing Marvel’s next hugely anticipated TV series exclusively to Prime Video and we look forward to hearing the reaction from Marvel fans and newcomers to the iconic entertainment series alike as they discover the universe of Cloak & Dagger. The Crossing is a timely addition to Prime Video and we’re expecting customers to find much to love about this enigmatic show.”
