Paramount Plus Launches on TVING in Korea in Partnership With CJ ENM

PARAMOUNT CONTINUES TO EXPAND STREAMING FOOTPRINT WITH THE LAUNCH OF PARAMOUNT+ IN KOREA

Part of multilateral global partnership with Korea's CJ ENM

Co-investment in local content to showcase local talent and fuel streaming library


Seoul, Korea – Paramount+ today officially marked its entry to Asia with the launch of its streaming service in South Korea on the number-one K-content platform, TVING. Beginning today, existing TVING subscribers can stream Paramount+ content at no extra charge.

The launch of Paramount+ brings unique stories, iconic stars, and a mountain of entertainment to South Korean audiences on TVING. Paramount+'s robust line-up includes Paramount+ originals such as HALO, in addition to YELLOWJACKETS, SUPER PUMPED: THE BATTLE FOR UBER, MAYOR OF KINGSTOWN, and 1883. These titles will all be released for the first time in Korea, exclusively on Paramount+.

Subscribers can also watch Paramount Pictures' classic already theatrically released hits, such as MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, TOP GUN, TRANSFORMERS, THE GODFATHER, and FORREST GUMP; popular CBS series such as CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION and NCIS, animated favourites such as Nickelodeon's SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS and Comedy Central's SOUTH PARK, as well as MTV's young adult series and popular SHOWTIME® titles.

The launch is part of a strategic global partnership between Paramount Global and CJ ENM that includes content licensing and distribution across Paramount+ and TVING, as well as seven Korean original series. 

The first Korean local production resulting from this partnership is YONDER, which will be premiering later this year on TVING in Korea. YONDER will also premiere on Paramount+ in all international markets where the service is available. Set in 2032, Yonder is a drama/science fiction series about a man who receives a message from his deceased wife inviting him to the mysterious space called Yonder. The space is designed for the dead to be able to live on by uploading memories of their lifetime from their brain. The show raises questions about life and death and what it means to have eternal happiness as humanity faces a world altered by advancements in science and technology.

As part of the company's investment in content, Paramount is also looking at opportunities and projects for Korean adaptations of known Paramount scripted I.P.s, global franchises, and reality programmes. 

Mark Specht, Executive Vice President & Managing Director, Central & Northern Europe and Asia, Paramount, said, "The launch of Paramount+ in Korea with TVING marks a pivotal moment in our expansion, as we introduce our premium streaming service to Asia. South Korea is a vibrant market for streaming as well as content production, music, and culture. We are very excited to partner with CJ ENM to expand our streaming business and produce great Korean content for audiences in Korea, Asia, and around the globe."

Jay Yang, CEO of TVING, commented "Please look forward to the well-made, various K-content that will enter the global market through the partnership of No.1 K-content platform TVING and one of the top entertainment companies, Paramount."

How to Stream 'Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe' for FREE on Paramount Plus From June 23

Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe | Official Trailer | Paramount+


In perhaps the dumbest space movie ever made, Beavis and Butt-head are sentenced to Space Camp by a "creative" judge in 1998, leading to a trip on the Space Shuttle, with predictably disastrous results. After going through a black hole, they reemerge in our time, where they look for love, misuse iPhones, and are hunted by the Deep State. Spoiler: They don't score.

Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe is streaming June 23 exclusively on Paramount+. Try it FREE at ParamountPlus.com.

“BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD DO THE UNIVERSE” TO PREMIERE EXCLUSIVELY ON PARAMOUNT+ THURSDAY, JUNE 23

From Creator Mike Judge and MTV Entertainment Studios, the Movie Features Beavis and Butt-Head’s First On-Screen Appearance in More Than 10 Years

Full Library of Over 200 Remastered “Beavis and Butt-Head” Episodes to Stream Exclusively on the Service


June 2, 2022 – Paramount+ today announced that its upcoming original movie BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD DO THE UNIVERSE will premiere on the service Thursday, June 23, marking the duo’s first on-screen appearance in more than 10 years. The movie will also be available to stream internationally in all territories where the service is available. In addition to the new movie, the full library of over 200 remastered “Beavis and Butt-Head” episodes will stream exclusively on the service, along with a new series coming later this year.

A tale that technically spans two centuries, BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD DO THE UNIVERSE promises to sit atop all future lists of the Dumbest Science Fiction Movies Ever Made. The saga begins when Beavis and Butt-Head wind up at space camp through “creative sentencing” from a juvenile court judge in 1998. Mistaking a docking simulator for something else (huh huh), Beavis and Butt-Head excel at it and are asked to join the space shuttle mission in a PR move. After ruining the mission, they are left for dead in space and end up going through a black hole and reemerging back on Earth in 2022, only to discover a very different world – and find themselves considered Buttholes of Interest by the NSA, the governor of Texas, and a highly intelligent version of themselves from a parallel universe. Also they almost lose their virginity, but don’t.

“Beavis and Butt-Head were defining voices of a generation, and to this day, the show is one of the most well-known and beloved animated IPs of all time,” said Chris McCarthy, president/CEO, Paramount Media Networks and MTV Entertainment Studios. “Mike Judge has reimagined this dynamic duo in a way that is sure to have both old fans and new ones alike laughing out loud – and we couldn’t be more excited to bring them back into our rapidly expanding arsenal of hit adult animation.”

“Reuniting Beavis and Butt-Head is the smartest dumb move one could make, and we jumped at the opportunity,” said Tanya Giles, chief programming officer of streaming for Paramount+. “Only a duo this iconic would bring us to space and back and we’re so excited to share their epic, nacho-filled journey with audiences.”

BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD DO THE UNIVERSE features the voices of Mike Judge, Gary Cole, Chris Diamantopoulos, Nat Faxon, Brian Huskey, Chi McBride, Tig Notaro, Stephen Root, Andrea Savage, Martin Starr and Jimmy O. Yang.

An exclusive look at the new movie will debut during the 2022 MTV Movie & TV Awards, which air live Sunday, June 5, at 8PM, ET/PT.

Created and voiced by writer, producer and director Mike Judge, the characters of Beavis and Butt-Head originated in Judge’s 1992 short film “Frog Baseball,” which was broadcast by MTV’s animation showcase “Liquid Television.” After MTV commissioned a full series around the characters, “Beavis and Butt-Head” ran for seven seasons from March 8, 1993, to Nov. 28, 1997. The series was revived in 2011 with an eighth season airing on MTV. During its initial run, “Beavis and Butt-Head” received widespread critical acclaim for its satirical, scathing commentary on society. The show’s popularity spawned various related media, including the theatrical film “Beavis and Butt-Head Do America” in 1996.

BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD DO THE UNIVERSE is executive-produced by Mike Judge, Lew Morton and Michael Rotenberg, and Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Ben Kalina, and Antonio Canobbio for Titmouse.

Three Animated ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ Movies In Works From Paramount, Nickelodeon; Lauren Montgomery To Direct The First

Paramount and Nickelodeon have announced that three new animated Avatar: The Last Airbender films are in development under the latter’s Avatar Studios banner. Lauren Montgomery (Avatar: The Last Airbender) is attached to direct the untitled first installment.


Bryan Konietzko and Michael DiMartino, who created the franchise-launching series Avatar: The Last Airbender for Nickelodeon, will produce alongside that show’s Executive Producer, Eric Coleman. Paramount Animations’ and Nickelodeon Animation’s Executive Vice President (EVP) of Movies and Global Franchises, Latifa Ouaou, will oversee development on the first film, alongside Jason McConnell, who serves as Vice President of Animation at Nickelodeon Animation & Paramount Animation.

Montgomery is a veteran director, producer and storyboard artist who served in the latter capacity on the original Avatar series. Additional credits on the directing side include Voltron: Legendary Defender, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and Young Justice.

“As original creators Mike and Bryan expand the Avatar universe with us, we’re keeping it all in the family with Lauren bringing the same kind of expert, beautiful work she did on the original series to her new directing duties on the forthcoming theatrical,” said Ramsey Naito, who serves as President of Animation & Development at Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon Animation.

Airing for three seasons between 2005 and 2008, Avatar: The Last Airbender followed Aang (Zach Tyler Eisen), a young boy reawakening in a war-torn world of elemental magic to undertake a dangerous mystic quest—thereby fulfilling his destiny as the Avatar, and bringing peace to the world. Nickelodeon followed up that hugely popular series with sequel The Legend of Korra, which aired for four seasons between 2012 and 2014. In the years since, the multimedia franchise has continued to expand with a 2010 live-action feature starring Dev Patel, which M. Night Shyamalan directed, as well as assorted comics, books, video games and home media releases. A live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series is currently in the works at Netflix, albeit without the involvement of Konietzko and DiMartino.

Avatar Studios is a division of Nickelodeon Animation announced back in February of last year, which was designed to create original content spanning animated series and movies based on the beloved world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, for platforms including Paramount+ and Nickelodeon, as well as third-party platforms and theaters. DiMartino and Konietzko run the studio as co-chief creative officers and report to Naito.

The full announcement will be made Thursday, June 16, during a special Nickelodeon and Paramount Animation presentation at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival.

Up next for Paramount Animation is Paws of Fury: The Legend of Hank, which is set for release on July 15. Other upcoming titles include a new animated Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pic (8/24/23), Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie (10/13/23), The Tiger’s Apprentice (12/20/23), an untitled, animated Transformers movie (7/19/24) and an untitled Smurfs animated musical (12/20/24).

Paramount International CEO Raffaele Annecchino Abruptly Put on Company Leave

Raffaele Annecchino, president of Paramount International Studios, Networks and Streaming has been put “on leave” from the company “effective immediately.”


A terse internal Paramount memo obtained by Variety also says that JC Acosta, President, International Studios, Streaming and Networks for Southern Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Africa; Maria Kyriacou, President, Australia, Canada, Israel and U.K.; and Mark Specht, Executive Vice President (EVP) and Managing Director (MD), Central and Northern Europe and Asia, “will be stepping in as interim heads to lead the international business.”

Representatives for Paramount Global did not immediately respond to Variety or TheWrap’s request for comment.

As he rose through the ranks at what is now Paramount, Annecchino is known to have had a close rapport with Paramount Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Bob Bakish, but it appears that this rapport has suddenly gone sour.

Annecchino had been leading the expansion of Paramount+ which, in a recent coup, is set to be the home for streamed cricket games of the Indian Premier League as the streamer expands to India in 2023, in what amounts to a blow to Disney+ in the region.

During a long stint at what is now Paramount Annecchino had been appointed president and CEO of what was then ViacomCBS Networks International (VCNI) in December 2020, overseeing media networks and related businesses outside the U.S., including both overseas pay-TV channels and broadcast networks. These include Channel 5 in the U.K., Telefe in Argentina, and Network Ten in Australia.

ViacomCBS rebranded to become Paramount Global in February as part of its ongoing effort to become a major global streaming player. By the end of 2022, Paramount+ and SkyShowtime, its premium streaming venture with Comcast, aim to launch in more than 60 markets.

Annecchino had previously served as president of ViacomCBS Networks Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia, during which time he oversaw the launch and acquisition of free-to-air channels in the key markets of Italy, Spain and Germany, and the creation of a new business unit to help drive ViacomCBS’s digital businesses as well as the expansion of Paramount’s free streaming service Pluto TV which is now available in more than 30 countries and territories. Before that Annecchino held positions at Turner International, Cartoon Network and CNN.

Did you know that Toph... | Avatar #Shorts | Avatar: The Last Airbender


Did you know the role of Aang's earthbending teacher wasn't always going to be a 12-year-old girl? Her original design was a tall, muscular teenage boy. However, as Team Avatar was writing for season 2, someone suggested making Toph a girl, while keeping the original personality of a tough and brash brawler. This was later referenced in the episode "The Ember Island Players", where Toph is played by a man.
