Mad Dogs, the remake of the critically-acclaimed British TV series from 2011, premieres today, Jan. 22 on HOOQ – Asia’s biggest video-on-demand service. The telecast will be held on the same day that it shows in the US. HOOQ is the first and only digital platform in Southeast Asia to offer this treat to its viewers, with all 10 episodes dropping in at the same time!
Peter Bithos, Chief Executive Officer of HOOQ, said “2015 has been a great year for us and we have promised our customers to deliver a host of new and exciting TV series ranging from in-season series to same day as the US telecast. What better way to start 2016 than to share with all HOOQ fans yet another world premiere exclusive to HOOQ.”
In the first episode of Mad Dogs, three friends gather in a beautiful villa in Belize to celebrate the retirement of an old buddy Milo played by Billy Zane (Titanic). But their celebration in paradise doesn’t last as the whole thing explodes into a labyrinthine nightmare of lies, deception and murder. It’s a story about trust and their friendship being put to the test.
