Krysten Ritter is set to direct the first four episodes of an adaptation of Crypt TV’s “Girl In The Woods” for Peacock.

Set in the Pacific Northwest, “Girl In The Woods” follows a young woman’s escape from her cult-like colony.

HBO Max is going big on productions in Latin America. The streamer will develop more than 100 local productions in Latin America during the next two years, 33 of which are already in production.

British jockey Hollie Doyle and race car driver Emily Linscott are among featured athletes. Melanie Capacia Johnson, head of studio at Whistle Studios, is exec-producing.

UPFRONTS

Roku will present its virtual Upfront on Monday, May 3. Cynopsis got an early briefing of the presentation, which will lean into the catch phrase “TV Starts Here,” positioning Roku as the access point for consumers to start their TV journey, not only their streaming journey. As of 2020, Roku reaches an households with an estimated 148 million streamers, a number that represents 34 percent more people than watched the Super Bowl this year.

Among new products being touted are OneView, Roku’s ad-buying platform created from its strategic alliance with Nielsen that will provide Nielsen reach & frequency reporting by age and gender across all four screens—linear TV, TV streaming, desktop and mobile. The newly branded Roku Originals will be center stage. Under that umbrella is Quibi content, the “This Old House” brand library purchased in May, a new advertising content studio poised to produce new creative ad formats and programming tailored for marketers looking to go beyond the traditional 30-second ad unit. Next up is a celebrity-hosted talk show sponsored by a spirits brand, already in preproduction.

Brands and agencies are chiming in early as well. “We are really interested in testing their Roku IDs, first party registration data,” says Monica Capelan, VP of sales planning, at Horizon Media. “For the upcoming Upfronts clients are interested in shifting their direct IO CTV buys to programmatic for an and audience first approach and Roku/OneView has been a great partner helping us educate the benefits of programmatic.”

“As a company that is always thinking about new ways to reach prospective members, the Roku partnership gives us access to an incredibly engaged woman wherever they are consuming content,” says Louisa Wee, CMO of FabFitFun. “It’s allowed us to unlock additional acquisition channels that so far have been a great source of qualified customers.”

Hall who, based on teaser, will be returning to his favorite pastime as everyone’s favorite serial killer. Series originally ran on the network for eight seasons, 2006-13.
