HBO, Sky to produce dramas in USD 250 mln multi-year project

Thursday 20 April 2017 | 09:50 CET | News
HBO and Sky have announced they will together create a number of high-end dramas, with a panel of executives from both companies greenlighting the pitches. The panel will be open to ideas from both the US and Europe, "consistent with the content strategies of HBO in North America and the Sky Atlantic brand in Europe." The idea is to greenlight at least two drama projects per year, with the first coming to the screen in 2018. About USD 250 million will go into the multi-year cooperation. The first projects have already been initiated, with announcements expected in the coming weeks.
