Cineflix Rights takes Coroner and Wynonna Earp to Brazil
Cineflix Rights has sold Seasons 1-3 of its hit crime drama Coroner and Seasons 1-4 of supernatural cult sensation Wynonna Earp to Brazilian OTT and SVOD service Globoplay, part of Grupo Globo.
Inspired by the best-selling series of books by M.R. Hall, Coroner (Seasons 1-3, 26X60’, Muse Entertainment, Back Alley Films, and Cineflix Studios for CBC, Canada) is a character-driven, procedural series about Dr. Jenny Cooper (Serinda Swan), a recently widowed, newly appointed coroner who investigates suspicious, unnatural or sudden deaths in Toronto. The show is a huge international success, airing globally on CBC, The CW Network, Channel 4, Sky Witness, and NBCUniversal International Networks.
Wynonna Earp (Seasons 1-4, 49X60’, IDW Entertainment, Cineflix Studios, and SEVEN24 Films for SYFY, US and CTV Sci-Fi, Canada) is the award-winning, action-packed sci-fi series which follows Wyatt Earp’s great-granddaughter as she battles demons and other supernatural beings. Winner of the 2020 and 2018 E! People’s Choice Award for Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show, Wynonna Earp recently sold to NBCUniversal International Networks science fiction channels in Iberia, France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland (SYFY), and in Poland and the Balkans (SCIFI).
Sabrina Ayala, SVP, Sales, France, Italy, Iberia, and Latin America, Cineflix Rights said: “I’m thrilled to be signing this deal with Globo to bring two of our flagship dramas to Brazil’s audiences. Both series mix compelling storylines and characters with exceptional performances from strong, diverse casts. Wynonna Earp has a huge cult following in Brazil and has already made local ‘Earpers’ ecstatic over the upcoming premiere on Globoplay. We’re confident that both Coroner and Wynonna will be massive hits for the platform, as they have been elsewhere.”
Antonio Augusto Valente, Content Strategy Manager, Globoplay added: “We are very happy to be welcoming the Earpers to Globoplay and adding these two highly successful series to our vast and diverse portfolio of international shows, which already includes the likes of The Good Doctor, Killing Eve, and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. Both Wynonna Earp and Coroner are outstanding, unique shows in their genres and will certainly captivate our viewers.”
