Showtime ready to Hunt Together

US premium cablenet Showtime has picked up a psychological thriller series originally commissioned by multichannel operator UKTV.

We Hunt Together debuted on Alibi in May

We Hunt Together premiered on UKTV’s Alibi in the UK and has been shopped to Showtime by BBC Studios, the commercial and production arm of the BBC.

Starring Eve Myles, Babou Ceesay, Hermione Corfield and Dipo Ola, the 6×60’ series explores the dangerous power of emotional manipulation and the intoxication of sexual attraction, which can lead to dire consequences for those who get in the way.

Written by Gaby Hull and produced and distributed by BBC Studios, it will debut on Showtime at 22.00 on Sunday August 9 following its Alibi bow last month.

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.”
