According to a press release, Paramount “plans to commission” 150 foreign originals for its Paramount Plus streaming service by 2025. On Tuesday, the corporation provided information about seven of the originals, which included material from Mexico, Germany, Italy, France, and other countries.
With this significant investment, Paramount probably hopes to achieve the same kind of success that other platforms have had with their own international originals. Squid Game, a French thriller from Netflix, has also proven popular. It is possible that Squid Game is the streaming service’s most popular series to date. Pachinko, a drama about a Korean immigrant family that Apple has extended for a second season, is something I’d definitely suggest if you have Apple TV Plus.
The news comes right before Paramount Plus is made accessible in the UK and Ireland, where it will begin on June 22nd. In collaboration with the Korean entertainment business CJ ENM, the service debuted this month in South Korea. It will be made accessible in Italy in September, Austria, France, Germany, and Switzerland in December, and India in 2023.
