Castle Rock, Maine in Russia? Da!
Under a newly announced agreement with Warner Bros. International Television Distribution, multinational Internet giant Yandex has acquired streaming video on demand (SVOD) rights to WBTV's Castle Rock and other content.
Taking viewers into the chilling world of acclaimed best-selling author Stephen King, Castle Rock is a psychological-horror series set in the King multiverse, combining the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of his best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland. From executive producers/writers Sam Shaw & Dustin Thomason, the project reunites King, J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television, which previously collaborated on event series 11.22.63, based on King’s novel.
Yandex.Plus subscribers will get access to several other series from Warner Bros. (and other production companies). All these series have already been shown abroad or will be released this year and will be shown for the first time in Russia on Kinopoisk.
