Sky original drama I Hate Suzie is set to premiere on HBO Max, with the streaming service becoming the exclusive US home.
The eight-part series follows Suzie Pickles, played by Billie Piper, who has her life upended when she is hacked and pictures of her emerge in a compromising position.
Piper and co-creator Lucy Prebble, said: “We are both delighted that our loving, twisted, vivid slap of a show about a woman being hacked will be on HBO Max. It’s the perfect home for it.”
I Hate Suzie’s premiere on HBO Max follows the platform’s acquisition of Frayed earlier this year, with Peacock acquiring Intelligence, Save Me, Hitmen and Code 404. This month alone, Gangs of London debuted on AMC+, Devils is currently running on The CW, Cobra is airing on PBS, Temple will premiere on Spectrum, and EPIX are currently broadcasting Britannia S2, after a successful run of S1 this summer.
Jane Millichip, Chief Content Officer, Sky Studios, said: “Our creative and commercial partnerships with US platforms are hugely important to Sky Studios, and it is a real testament to the appeal and quality of Sky Originals that we have placed 29 shows with 15 different platforms in 2020. “
