THE SOUTH WESTERLIES: DRAMA SERIES ACQUIRED BY UKTV
Little lies lead to bigger truths in charming Irish dramedy, The South Westerlies.
Environmental consultant Kate Ryan (Orla Brady, Fringe) goes undercover in a small town to quell objections to a wind farm. But Kate has a complicated history with Carrigeen.
Soon after arriving with her son, she runs into an ex-friend and an old flame, soon realising her task won’t be a breeze. Co-stars Patrick Bergin (Patriot Games).
Melanie Rumani, global head of acquisitions at BBC Studios and UKTV said: “It’s brilliant to see our portfolio on Drama, Alibi and UKTV Play, as well as BBC Studios’ owned BBC First in Benelux, continue to grow with these fantastic new additions.”
“The BBC has been a longstanding valued partner of ours and we are excited by this new chapter in our relationship,” said Mike Pears, EVP of distribution and content sales for AMC Networks. “Both in the U.S. and around the world, we want to make our shows available on a wide variety of platforms, to find new viewers and build awareness of the high-quality content that continues to define our company.”
The South Westerlies will premiere on UKTV Play.
