Sony Crackle brings “Doctor Who” to Latin America
With this deal, Crackle subscribers in the Latin America region will have exclusive access to the highly anticipated global franchise which features Jodie Whittaker as the newest Doctor alongside a completely fresh cast. The new season features ten 50-minute episodes kicking off with a feature length opening episode.
The eleventh season of Doctor Who marks the beginning of a new era for the legendary Time Lord. The series’ new showrunner, Chris Chibnall (Broadchurch), brings a fresh vision to this fun and exciting adventure through time and space.
The new production features Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor, a supremely intelligent force of nature who travels in the company of a number of charming friends. Packed with action, adventure, humour and emotion, the series has remained a hot favourite for many years.
“Doctor Who is a powerful brand which has a long history and faithful fans around the world. This new deal strengthens BBC Studios’ commercial relationship with Crackle and allows us to give Latin American audiences a chance to enjoy this new season of Doctor Who, featuring the first ever woman in the iconic role,” said David Hanono, General Manager, Sales and Digital at BBC Studios Latin America/US Hispanic.
