Stan has signed a deal with NBCUniversal for Peacock content here in Australia.
The multi-year deal means streaming service Stan will “become the Australian home of new productions from Sky Studios and NBCUniversal International Studios, as well as Peacock content produced by Universal Studio Group.”
The deal means new titles like Brave New World, Dr Death, Angelyne, MacGruber, Girls5eva, One of Us is Lying, Rutherford Falls and new versions of Punky Brewster, Battlestar Galactica and Saved by the Bell will be exclusive to Stan in Australia.
Moreover, Stan will have local rights to Dreamworks Animation TV shows, NBC Universal’s childrens programming and a library of TV and films from the NBCUniversal catalogue including The Office, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock and Will & Grace.
“This marks the first time an agreement combining series from Sky Studios, DreamWorks Animation and Peacock content produced by Universal Studio Group has been secured in Australia – the biggest new slate of premium scripted content to come to market in recent times,” said Stan’s CEO, Mike Sneesby.
“This landmark deal reflects the strength of NBCUniversal’s portfolio and reinforces Stan’s commitment to bring the world’s best programming to Australians through our most significant output partnership to date.”
