Eight-part political thriller The Inner Circle, starring Niklas Engdahl and Nanna Blondell, is adapted from a novel by Per Schlingmann that follows Minister for Enterprise David Ehrling in his quest to become Prime Minister and exposes the scheming, dirty tricks and power plays that can take place in politics today.
Meanwhile, stylish seven-part thriller Monster, starring Jakob Oftebro and Ingvild Holthe Bygdnes, sees the hunt for a serial killer in remote Norway begin to spiral out of control as its lead investigators clash and resort to questionable methods as they fight their own demons.
Walter Presents has also acquired Rekyl for the US and Belgium, about an ex-con who is drawn back to his old ways, and Italy can now look forward to The River, a murder mystery set on Norway’s border with Russia.
EVP of Sales for NENT Studios UK, Elin Thomas, said: “Scandinavia continues to provide a rich seam of powerful stories and brilliantly-crafted dramas with broad international appeal, and we are delighted to represent so many strong titles from the region.”
“Walter Presents has an enviable reputation for curating standout international scripted titles, so we pleased it has selected so many of our recent non-English language series… for its major territories.”
