HOOQ, Asia’s biggest video-on-demand service, partners with Sony Pictures Entertainment to bring you the exclusive premiere of the critically acclaimed Mad Dogs, same day as the US telecast.

Mad Dogs is a dark comedy – thriller TV series about 4 friends: Joel (Bill Chaplin), Lex (Michael Imperioli), Gus (Robi Malco), and Cobi (Steve Zhan) who heads to a villa in Belize to celebrate Milo’s (Billy Zhane) early retirement. Things quickly spiral into a labyrinthine of lies, deception and murder that will put the best of friendships to the ultimate test! It has a little bit of gore, but it’s something that can be watched while having dinner. And there’s a lot of panic going on in the series.


It’s a remake from a British TV series of the same name which came out last 2011.

Mad Dogs premiered worldwide last January 22 and HOOQ will be the first and only digital platform in Southeast Asia to offer the series on the same day as the US.  All 10 episodes are available at HOOQ at the same time.
