‘Cloak And Dagger’

Disney EMEA has struck its first deal with Amazon Prime to bring two of its latest US series to the SVoD service in the UK.

Amazon will roll out Marvel’s 10-part drama Cloak & Dagger in the UK, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France and Italy in June – one day after its June 7 premiere on US cable channel Freeform.

The drama, co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios, tells the story of two teenagers from starkly different backgrounds who find themselves burdened and awakened by newly discovered super-powers.

Meanwhile, The Crossing will premiere on Prime Video in the UK and Ireland on April 3, and in Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Austria on April 27.

The ABC Studios drama, which stars Steve Zahn and debuted on US broadcaster ABC earlier this month, tells the story of a group of refugees from a war-torn country 250 years in the future who seek asylum in an American town.

Jay Marine, vice-president of Prime Video EU, said: “We look forward to hearing the reaction from Marvel fans and newcomers to the iconic entertainment series alike as they discover the universe of Cloak & Dagger.

The Crossing is a timely addition to Prime Video and we’re expecting customers to find much to love about this enigmatic show.”
