Hulu Japan adds first Spanish, Indian drama series to streaming line-up

Hulu Japan has acquired rights to foreign series from Spain and India in an expansion of its experiment with blockbuster international content from beyond the U.S. and U.K.

The two new shows – Spain’s “Locked Up” (“Vis a Vis”) from Globomedia/Imagina and Indian period drama “Porus” from One Life Studios – are Hulu Japan’s first acquisitions from both markets.

These follow series such as Russian zombie drama “The Day After”, Turkey’s “Magnificent Century” and Australia’s “Wentworth”.

Both series will stream in 2019.
