LONDON -- ITV Studios Global Entertainment has inked a multi-year video-on-demand deal with Svensk Filmindustri (SF) in the Nordic region for a slew of crime dramas such as Lewis, Agatha Christie’s Poirot, Agatha Christie’s Marple, Prime Suspect, A Touch Of Frost and Inspector Morse.
The deal will see the shows offered on SF’s branded section of Scandinavian pay TV company C More’s SVOD platform.
