Showtime subscribers will get to watch a collection of A24 movies, thanks to a new output agreement between the two companies. With the new deal, Showtime Networks will add qualifying A24 films theatrically released through November 1, 2022 to the Showtime, Movie Channel, and FLIX services. The agreement allows Showtime Networks Inc. to exhibit the features across its premium services on-air, on-demand, and online.
The announcement was made by Kent Sevener, Executive Vice President, Content Acquisition and Business and Legal Affairs, Showtime Networks Inc. The partnership will include up to 16 films annually produced by the studio. A24’s upcoming theatrical releases include Gotham Award-nominated “Waves,” starring Sterling K. Brown, Kelvin Harrison Jr., and Lucas Hedges; Mike Mills’ next film starring Joaquin Phoenix; “Green Knight,” starring Dev Patel and Alicia Vikander; Joel Cohen’s adaptation of “Macbeth” starring Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand; “Zola” from Janicza Bravo; and Jonathan Glazer’s untitled WWII project. The deal also gives Showtime Networks exclusive rights to the television premiere of A24’s previous Oscar-winning and nominated films including “Moonlight,” “Lady Bird,” “Room” and “Ex Machina.” The partnership is a great way for people that live in rural areas, away from specialty box office releases, a chance to catch up with these A24 movies.
“We can’t wait to bring Showtime viewers this incredible collection of world-class films from some of the most acclaimed visionaries in the industry,” said Sevener. “Along with our award-winning series, documentaries, sports offerings and an already established library of theatrical titles, A24’s iconic slate of films exemplifies Showtime as a one-stop shop for curated, cutting-edge content.”
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Showtime. They are one of the most dynamic platforms in the business, and they consistently showcase first-rate, singular programming. We think they are the perfect home for our diverse array of projects,” said A24.
Over the last few years, A24 has become a standout studio for award-winning content. Just in the last year, the studio backed possible award-winners “The Lighthouse,” “Uncut Gems,” “Midsommer,” “The Farewell,” “The Last Black Man in San Francisco,” “High Life,” “The Souvenir,” “Gloria Bell,” “Under the Silver Lake,” and “Climax.”
