Welcome to Global Breakouts, Deadline’s fortnightly strand in which we shine a spotlight on the TV shows and films killing it in their local territories.

The industry is as globalized as it’s ever been, but breakout hits are appearing in pockets of the world all the time and it can be hard to keep track… So, we’re going to do the hard work for you. This time round, we’re flying way down south (ironically) to explore Far North, a dramedy crime caper New Zealand about a normal couple who are caught up a major drug smuggling operation led by the world’s most hopeless gang.

Incredibly based on a true story, the show has met with critical acclaim and ratings across Australasia ahead of a U.S. debut on co-producer Sundance Now.

Discovery-owned national channel TV3, its streaming service ThreeNow and for Paramount+ in Australia. A Sundance Now launch is incoming and distributor All3Media International has been pushing the show in the global buying sphere.
