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.
