HBO Max acquires Arthur’s Law
January 5, 2021
US streaming platform HBO Max has announced that it will be the exclusive home to WarnerMedia Germany’s series Arthur’s Law, which is set to premiere on January 7th.
The German-language dark comedy has won multiple awards including a Rockie Award as “best non-English comedy series.”
In the show, unemployed Arthur Ahnepol ekes out a bleak existence. Drawn from the strains of his unhappy marriage and bored to death, he makes a morbid plan: he wants his obnoxious wife to die. With the money from the life insurance there’s no obstacle for a restart with his beloved mistress. But an unwritten law dominates the life of the unlucky fellow: every problem solved by Arthur has a far worse effect. And so, he sets off an avalanche of disastrous events.
Arthur’s Law will be featured in a new International genre page on HBO Max alongside a curated selection of international programming from all around the world.
