Titles from all over the world coming to All 4, Channel 4 and More 4 in 2016
There is a man named Walter Iuzzolino, and he likes high-quality foreign drama. You may or may not have known this fact, but for the purposes of what we're about to tell you, it's important. The thing is, Walter likes high-quality foreign drama so much, he has curated a unique, on-demand service for All 4 called Walter Presents. Classic Walter move, right?
The platform will eventually host more than 600 hours of drama that will be available for box-set viewing. Viewers can download drama to watch at their leisure, and a selection of the best series will also be broadcast on Channel 4 and More4.
Thanks to Walter, as who is actually Chief Creative Officer of the Global Series Network which has partnered up with C4 on this project, viewers can see titles from a wide range of territories, including Brazil, France, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Argentina, Switzerland, Belgium, Mexico, Poland, Chile and Denmark.
Highlights include supernatural series Heartless (Denmark), poker drama Ten (Switzerland), detective series Match Day (France) and police drama The Lens (Czech Republic).
Walter himself says: 'Over the past few years, the world has been producing some truly amazing drama series, but we haven’t been able to watch them – until now. Walter Presents is bringing these must-see smash hits to the UK free of charge, available to watch whenever you want. A range of compelling, addictive stories which are impossible to put down.'
Walter Presents is coming to All 4 in early 2016.
