DRG secures HBO Europe dramas

UmbreNice Entertainment Group-owned distributor DRG has acquired rights to a pair of HBO Europe dramas that it had initially licensed to the Time Warner broadcaster as formats.

DRG had sold format rights to Umbre (pictured) and Mammon in the past year, and will now sell the finished shows on the international market.

Furthermore, DRG has licensed a Nice group drama, Moskito’s Easy Living, to HBO Europe for Hungary, and NRK’s Eyewitness for Romania.

“Our first production with HBO Europe, Umbre, clearly demonstrates their excellence in producing fantastic high-end drama content that has international appeal, but which is relevant to HBO Europe’s local audiences,” said DRG’s commercial director Wayne Davison.

“It is also a great opportunity for us to showcase not only the adaptability of DRG’s scripted formats but also the quality drama content that is being produced across Europe.”
