MTG Studios has announced Rig 45, a new thriller for Viaplay directed by Per Hanefjord (Black Widows) which stars an ensemble cast of Nordic and international talent led by Catherine Walker (Versailles) and Gary Lewis (Outlander).
Two days before Christmas, Andrea (Catherine Walker) is sent by Benthos Oil to investigate a fatal accident on a North Sea rig. Met by an inexplicable wall of silence from the crew, Andrea starts to suspect something is very wrong…
Then a hurricane slams into Rig 45, cutting off all communications with the outside world, the crew find themselves battling both the elements and a shockingly devious killer. The question is not just who it is, but who will survive.
MTG Head of Programming, Jakob Mejlhede, said: “Trapped on a creaking oil rig in a storm with a seemingly unstoppable murderer – Rig 45 combines high waves with even higher tension.”
“Incredible set design, great writing and an amazing ensemble cast will push your nerves to the very edge. When it comes to unbearable suspense, this rig just struck the big one.”
