Netflix Buys International Rights To TNT's 'Snowpiercer' And Bravo's 'Dirty John' Series

Fans outside of North America waiting to find out when they can watch the highly-anticipated series “Snowpiercer” and “Dirty John” can breathe easy. Netflix has you covered.

As with many of the US-based series, Netflix has purchased the rights to distribute “Snowpiercer” and “Dirty John” to territories outside the US and Canada via their streaming service, according to Deadline. For those of us that live in the US and are unaware of Netflix’s reputation around the world, the streaming service is responsible for bringing many big-name series to worldwide territories day-and-date as their US counterparts. So, for those waiting to see how TNT handles (or mishandles, as speculation suggests) “Snowpiercer,” you’ll just have to tune in to Netflix.

“Snowpiercer” is a series that has had a lot of ink spilled about its production. The series is the silver screen adaptation of Bong Joon Ho’s acclaimed film but has been mired in controversy recently. With pilot director Scott Derrickson walking away from the project (and washing his hands clean), mid-production, after the showrunner was replaced, many have been speculating that the Jennifer Connolly and Daveed Diggs series is doomed.

“Dirty John” is being produced by Bravo and follows the story that was detailed in the recently viral podcast of the same name. The series stars Connie Britton and Eric Bana and follows the intrigue surrounding a real-life romance that is full of incredible lies.

The deal with Netflix is great news for these productions, as the streaming service is known to pay a pretty penny for international rights to high-profile series. The price tag is normally so high that Netflix ends up footing the bill for much, if not all, of the production costs of the pilot episode.

There’s no word on when these series will be hitting international territories.
