Amazon Strikes International Output Deal With AMC Studios

First title covered by the deal is Ridley Scott's 'The Terror'

Amazon Prime Video will get a raft of AMC series on an exclusive basis across 28 territories after inking an output deal with AMC Studios, the programming arm of the U.S. cable network.

The agreement hands Amazon the AMC shows in an exclusive first window, meaning they will be on the Prime Video service ahead of any other streaming platform, pay-TV service, or free TV.

Australia, Germany, Italy, India, and Japan are among the territories covered. “The Terror,” a series produced by Ridley Scott about an Arctic expedition gone wrong, is the first title covered by the deal.

AMC Studios has produced series such as “Halt and Catch Fire” and “Into the Badlands.” It is a production partner on the upcoming John Le Carre adaptation “The Little Drummer Girl,” and recently struck a deal with Chris Hardwick for a first look at the “Talking Dead” host’s projects from his Fish Ladder production company, formed earlier this year.

“This is another step in our efforts to extend the selection of premium TV shows available to Prime Video members worldwide,” said Brad Beale, vice president of content acquisition for Amazon Prime Video.

AMC Studios and Amazon have worked together before but never had an output deal. Rick Olshansky, president of business operations, AMC Studios, said: “This agreement underscores the high global demand for AMC’s must-have content and franchises and enables us to bring our popular shows to a wide global audience.”
