MADRID — Spain’s TNT has picked up Spanish pay TV rights to HBO’s upcoming David Simon skein “Treme.”
TNT will premiere “Treme” May 2 in Spain, very close to the Stateside bow, skedded for April 11, to combat unauthorized online consumership.
The 10-episode series reflects the intertwining lives of New Orleans citizens, following the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
With “Treme,” TNT Spain targets the same TV audience demo that follows David Simon’s cult series “The Wire,” which TNT programs.
Other TNT Spain programming highlights include “The Mentalist,” “V,” “The Middle” and “Adult Swim.”
Launched May 2007 by Turner Broadcasting System, TNT airs in Spain via satcaster Digital Plus, IPTV services Imagenio and Orange TV, and regional cable operators Euskaltel and R.
TBS also looks after Cartoon Network, Boomerang, TCM, TCM Clasico and CNN International in Spain’s pay TV market.
