The indian distributor GoQuest Media bought global rights for two of NTV’s action-packed TV shows: “Paper Pusher” and “The Policeman’s Wife”. “This deal will help expanding NTV’s presence in the rapidly developing South Asia. VoD viewers are already familiar with other NTV series as ‘Schubert’, available on Bilibili, the largest Chinese digital platform, and ‘The Road to Calvary’ offered by Netflix. Our regions often have similar content preferences. NTV has recently acquired the rights to adapt three Korean projects, and now the buyers from that part of the world are purchasing NTV’s original content,” says Timur Weinstein, NTV General Producer.
“Everyone loves crime dramas. ‘Paper Pusher’ and ‘The Policeman’s Wife’ by NTV are quality projects that are expected to generate high interest among our audience. The content from Eastern Europe and Russia is gaining steam, so we are happy to include those new shows in our offer,” commented Jimmy George, GoQuest Vice President Sales & Acquisitions.
