Streaming OTT platform Cirkus is expanding with Kritic, a new service programmed with premium non-English-language drama, reports Variety.
The first launch will be in Sweden in December and feature big-ticket shows such as Babylon Berlin from Beta Films Germany and Gomorrah from Italy.
Cirkus is available in the Nordics and German-speaking territories on various platforms. Kritic will first roll out in Sweden, with more launches planned in Scandinavia in early 2020. Kritic becomes the third branded service in the Cirkus stable. It joins the original core Cirkus offering and the documentary programmed Curio.
Cirkus was founded in 2012 by Hugh Williams and Mark Bradford, both well-known UK television executives.
