Comcast-Paramount streaming JV SkyShowtime has unveiled details of its content line-up for Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands and Portugal at a launch event in Amsterdam yesterday evening. 

New titles which will be rolled out over the coming year include The Calling, Funny Woman, Mayor of Kingstown Season 2, Rabbit Hole, Ripley, Three Women and Taylor Sheridan series’ Tulsa King, 1923 and Lioness.

The Calling is a crime drama series that follows NYPD detective Avraham Avraham (Jeff Wilbusch) as a seemingly routine investigation turns upside down.
Tulsa King from Taylor Sheridan, stars Sylvester Stallone as New York mafia capo Dwight “The General” Manfredi, just after he is released from prison after 25 years and exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Sheridan’s 1923 is the next instalment of the Yellowstone origin story, following 1883, starring Harrison Ford and Helen Mirren.

Funny Woman is a comedy series based on Nick Hornby’s novel Funny Girl, which tells the story of Blackpool beauty queen Barbara Parker (Gemma Arterton) as she tries to make it in London in the swinging ‘60s.

Rabbit Hole is a spy thriller series starring Kiefer Sutherland. Ripley is a retelling of the Patricia Highsmith Tom Ripley starring Andrew Scott. Three Women follows the lives of women from different parts of America who have agreed to share their stories of desire with a grieving writer. Lioness is based on a real-life CIA program to help bring down a terrorist organization.

Movies including Top Gun: Maverick, Jurassic World Dominion, Minions: The Rise of Gru, The Northman, Downton Abbey: A New Era, Nope, Ambulance and The Bad Guys will also feature on the streamer, along with library titles and box sets from Universal Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Nickelodeon, DreamWorks Animation, Paramount+, Showtime, Sky Studios and Peacock.
