Walter Presents Is launching a new drama venture called Eagle Eye Drama.

The new company will focus on producing English language drama series inspired by foreign language shows they have discovered and championed on Walter Presents channels around the world.

Eagle Eye Drama has the full backing of Channel 4, who will be investing through its Indie Growth Fund and taking a minority stake in the new company.

Eagle Eye Drama has several dramas on their development slate and have already won two commissions from two broadcasters, projects which they will announce early next year. Alongside the new venture the trio will continue to work across Walter Presents, as the successful global drama streaming service now in seven countries, continues to roll out into new territories.
