The club gives members the opportunity to learn about the first slate of six new high profile dramas. Members will be joining founder Viaplay for the first club meeting at MIPCOM on October 15.

The list of new members also includes Orange (France), Sky New Zealand, Antenna (Greece), Yes TV (Israel) and NewFilm (Russia).

Atrium TV will make its new programming slate public next week, once it has been presented to club members.

Stringer said: “We have some brilliant talent joining us on the day, presenting some very exciting new projects, and I am really looking forward to hearing member feedback. We believe we are developing a winning slate of ambitious, must-see drama and we are very much hoping that our members see these as perfect programmes for their audiences and subscribers, to help build their brands.”
