Indonesia – On the first day of Asia Pay TV Operators Summit (APOS) in Bali, Indonesia, BBC Worldwide announced a deal that will make award-winning and highly rated BBC dramas available to Zee Café’s viewers throughout India during prime time.
The block will launch on Monday, June 26 and will air every week night at 10pm. It will give audiences access to some of the best BBC dramas – unforgettable stories that challenge, immerse and entertain, from a distinctly British perspective.
The Emmy-nominated Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond will kick off the block. The four-part action-packed drama starring Dominic Cooper explores the life of Ian Fleming, who created the James Bond icon in his spy novels. Zee Café viewers will also be able to catch SS-GB – set in 1941, history is turned on its head in this gripping and intelligent series adapted from Len Deighton’s bestselling thriller in which the Second World War’s Battle of Britain has ended in victory for Hitler’s Germany and the population of 1940s Britain struggles under Nazi occupation; as well as Doctor Foster – an award winning mystery-drama about a trusted GP who sees her charmed life explode when she suspects her husband of an affair. Doctor Foster was the most watched new drama in the UK when it aired.
