The Take

  • As studios and networks rearrange their fall schedule due to the ongoing Hollywood writers’ and actors’ strike, Paramount+ goes international.
  • Six new shows from the U.K., South Korea, and Latin America will debut on Paramount+ this fall and winter.
  • The streaming service has aired international content before, with many programs succeeding in the U.S. and globally.
  • Paramount has already produced 85 international series and launched Paramount Television International Studios this year for more scripted content.

Paramount+ is adding new scripted content from its international partners this year, expanding the opportunities to watch great content worldwide. The streaming service has aired global content before and recently launched Paramount Television International Studios to produce more content outside the U.S.

The six shows—from South Korea, Latin America, and the U.K.—will help Paramount+ air new scripted content during the writers’ and actors’ strikes, which have stopped all studio productions. The hope is that viewers will stick around to watch the new content on Paramount+, even if it’s not traditional Paramount programming like NCIS and Yellowstone.

“At Paramount+, we believe in the power of internationally originated content to drive engagement,” Tom Ryan, President and Chief Executive Officer, Streaming, Paramount, said in a statement. “We know there is a huge appetite for premium high-quality programming from around the world, and we are thrilled to leverage Paramount’s global scale and expertise to build a slate of new hits and franchises with worldwide appeal.”
