We are happy to report that starting 19 May 2023, viewers in the UK and Republic of Ireland are now able to enjoy the Rabbit scripted drama series Mobile 101 via the VOD platform Walter Presents. The first episode of the series has also just premiered on the linear broadcaster Channel 4 yesterday (Sunday 21 May 2023).
Mobile 101 is based on real life events: It’s the late 1980s. Nokia is financially shaky, the leading execs are at loggerheads, but an engineer has a brilliant idea…
The 6 x 45 min series was produced by Rabbit Films for broadcaster MTV3 Finland and streamer CMore, where it premiered in 2022 to both critical and commercial acclaim.
The series has previously been acquired for Sweden, Denmark and Norway by CMore, and by Disney+ in Italy, The Netherlands and Belgium.
Walter Iuzzolino of Walter Presents praised the series: “Mobile 101 is a sharp, incisive and unmissable show infused with nostalgia and vintage pop culture. Sharp writing, strong performances by a brilliant ensemble cast and gorgeous direction and photography make this a delicious treat for all lovers of great subtitled drama.”
