Target picks up rights to Cloud Street, shops it to Sky Atlantic

UK-based distributor Target Entertainment has taken international distribution rights to Screentime-produced period series Cloud Street and has sold it to UK pay TV channel Sky Atlantic.

It will officially launch the series at MIPCOM.

The miniseries is based in the bestselling, award-winning novel by Tim Winton and chronicles the fortunes of two Australian families that end up living together in Perth over twenty years, starting in the 1940s.

In Australia, the TV dramatisation aired on Showcase, the Showtime-owned premium pay TV channel.

Alison Rayson, CEO of Target Entertainment said: “We are very proud at Target to have won the global rights to such a prestigious and high end drama series from Showtime Australia and look forward hugely to presenting it to our buyers at MIPCOM in October.”
