Disney+ has found something outstanding in Ralph & Katie as Disney has picked up their rights.

Recently, on the eve of the international TV market MIPCOM, a deal was made that Disney+ has bought rights across Europe, outside the U.K, as well as the Middle East and Africa for “Ralph & Katie,” a BBC television drama series, which is a spin-off of “The A Word” that follows the lives of a couple who both have Down syndrome.

The spin-off of BBC’s hit “The A Word” was originally released on October 5 and consists of six half-hour episodes. The series mainly features two characters, as same as created for “The A Word,” Ralph and Katie, which were played by Leon Harrop and Sarah Gordy respectively.

Disney+ Picked Rights From BBC One Across Europe For ‘Ralph & Katie,’ A Spin-Off of ‘The A Word!’

The A Word is a British adaptation of Keren Margalit’s groundbreaking and popular Israeli family drama Yellow Peppers, which was written and produced for Keshet Broadcasting.

The Ralph & Katie was created by Peter Bowker and co-produced by ITV Studios and Keshet U.K. with Tiger Aspect Productions, whereas The A Word production companies were Keshet UK and Fifty Fathoms Productions.

Disney also included the rights for all three seasons of “The A Word” during the deal with the sales group Keshet International. However, The A Word is already available to watch on Disney+ in regions of Nordics and Belgium.

Since Disney has now acquired the rights, the show will have a release in Portugal, Italy, Spain, and France in November and in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland the next year. Beginning in early 2023, Ralph & Katie will make their Disney+ debut in EMEA.
