Canal+ International acquires ZDF Enterprises’ drama highlight ‘Wild District’ for Myanmar
Mainz, September 30th, 2019
Canal+ International in Myanmar has acquired rights to the popular drama series ‘Wild District’ (10x60’) from ZDF Enterprises.
Canal+ Myanmar has secured exclusive TV rights and non-exclusive SVOD rights. It is the first acquisition of programs from ZDF Enterprises’ drama catalogue by this client. Only last year, Canal+ Group launched a pay-TV service in Myanmar, offering nearly 80 channels including eight Canal+ channels. The establishment of Canal+ Myanmar is part of the development strategy in territories with high growth potential, the second largest country in Asia after Vietnam.
‘Wild District’ is produced by Dynamo (‘The Hidden Face’, ‘Undertow’) in co-production with ZDF Enterprises. Dynamo also provided production services to such high-profile projects as Netflix’s ‘Narcos’ and ‘American Made’ starring Tom Cruise. Created by Cristian Conti and directed by Javier Fuentes-León and Carlos Moreno, the series stars Juan Pablo Raba (‘Narcos’, ‘Six’, ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’). ‘Wild District’ blends pure drama and action to tell the story of a man who escapes the Colombian armed conflict only to find himself facing a private war on two fronts.
Robert Franke, VP ZDFE.drama for ZDF Enterprises: “We are thrilled to have this fanstastic series on Canal+ Myanmar. It is an honor to be working with Canal+ and we are looking forward to our future cooperation“.
