Amazon Prime Video in the United Kingdom has licensed exclusive access to two new series from The Walt Disney Co. Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
The series include Marvel’s “Cloak & Dagger” and “The Crossing,” – the latter sci-fi episodic launching on ABC TV in the United States on April 2 and on Prime Video U.K. on April 3.
“Cloak & Dagger,” features Olivia Holt and Aubrey Joseph as Tandy Bowen (Dagger) and Tyrone Johnson (Cloak), two teenagers who acquire superpowers and form a romantic relationship. The series bows domestically on Freeform (formerly Disney Family) on June 7 and on Prime Video U.K. on June 8.
“The Crossing” is about refugees from a war-torn country (the U.S.) in the future coming to an American fishing town in the present. While the government sets to work trying to untangle the truth behind the ominous migration, the fact that the lives of those involved will never again be the same seems to be the only thing that no one can deny.
“This marks another step forward in bringing best-in-class TV shows to Prime Video customers in Europe,” Jay Marine, VP Prime Video EU, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to be bringing Marvel’s next hugely anticipated TV series exclusively to Prime Video and we look forward to hearing the reaction from Marvel fans and newcomers.”
Last month, Prime Video U.K. secured exclusive access to ABC’s “American Idol” two days after the show’s domestic broadcast. This season’s music talent competition features guest judges Katy Perry, Lionel Ritchie and Luke Bryan.
