Showtime picks up UK thriller ‘We Hunt Together’

ViacomCBS-owned US network Showtime has picked up BBC Studios’ psychological thriller We Hunt Together for broadcast.

The 6 x 60-minute series recently premiered on British broadcaster UKTV’s Alibi channel. Produced and distributed by BBC Studios, it will air on Showtime from 9 August.

Written by Gaby Hull, the series stars Eve Myles, Babou Ceesay, Hermione Corfield and Dipo Ola and follows two mismatched police officers on the trail of a pair of killers who use emotional and sexual manipulation to hunt their victims.

Martin Rakusen, director of drama content partnerships at BBC Studios, said: “From the outset, our ambition was to tell compelling stories from the best of British talent and I’m thrilled that we have found a partner in Showtime that have embraced the series that Gaby and the team have created. After such a positive audience reaction to the series premiere in the UK, I’m excited to see the response from Showtime’s audience when it launches in August.”

Richard Watsham, UKTV’s director of commissioning, added: “I’m delighted that Showtime has picked up We Hunt Together. I am sure they’ll be a fantastic partner for us on this dark, distinctive thriller, which has already gone down brilliantly with Alibi’s audiences in the UK.

“It’s a testament to the quality that Philippa and the team at BBC Studios have delivered. With more dramas in the pipeline, it’s shaping up to be a powerful partnership.”
