MTG Studios has announced Hidden, an eight part drama for Viaplay starring August Wittgenstein (The Crown) and Izabella Scorupco (Goldeneye), where dark secrets, unsuspected identities and supernatural forces converge against the backdrop of modern day Stockholm.
Based on the novel Förstfödd by Filip Alexanderson, a law student is working on building sites to support his sick mother when he is involved in a serious accident. From that moment on his life is turned upside down. It becomes clear that he is being hunted and is forced to escape into the shadows of Stockholm.
MTG Head of Programming, Jakob Mejlhede, said: “Our next original series re-imagines the global urban fantasy phenomenon in a uniquely Nordic way. Hidden blends the paranormal with hard-hitting realism and psychological drama – it’s like seeing Stockholm in a weird fairground mirror.”
Hidden, directed by Jonathan Sjöberg (Black Lake), who co-wrote the series with Björn Paqualin (Occupied), begins filming January 2018. It is slated to premiere on Viaplay later that year, and will air later on TV3 in Sweden.
