Warp Films’ new drama, Little Birds, has secured a number of international distribution deals, through ITV Studios.

The Sheffield-based production company originally made the 6-part period drama, inspired by the fiction of Anais Nin, for Sky Atlantic.

“It comes as no surprise to me that the sumptuous Little Birds has been picked up in these multi-territory and premium streaming deals. An assault on the senses and a gripping storyline – viewers will be mesmerised and seduced by this unique show,” said Ruth Berry, Managing Director, Global Distribution at ITV Studios.

Starring Juno Temple, Yumna Marwan and Hugo Skinner, it was directed by Stacie Passon (The Affair, House of Cards), written by Sophia Al-Maria and produced by Ruth McCance and Peter Carlton (The Last Panthers, Southcliffe).

The new deals are with Starzplay, the premium international streaming service from STARZ, which has acquired the production for Belgium, Brazil, France, Luxembourg, Spain, French-speaking Switzerland, the Netherlands and Latin America.

Deals have also been done with premium SVOD service STAN in Australia, TVNZ in New Zealand, Lionsgate in India, KT Corporation in Korea and PCCW Media Limited in Hong Kong, as well as RTL in Germany, the online TV platform MORE.TV in Russia and IPTV and Satellite TV operator COSMOTETV in Greece.
