Walter Presents has bought a top Scandinavian thriller for their platform. The 10-parter entitled GREYZONE stars Borgen’s Birgitte Hjort Sørensen.
Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, plays Victoria, a drone engineer who is taken hostage by terrorists in her own home but somehow manages to get a message to the secret services, who desperately try to prevent an attack on Scandinavian soil.
Co-founder and curator Walter Iuzzolino says:“After being boxed for too many years into the ‘dead girl and moody detective’ corner, Scandi drama is in the midst of a sensational phase of creative reinvention. GREYZONE is a perfect example of this: an ambitious, glossy and utterly compelling thriller which completely subverts the Homeland-style premise of a terrorist plot to tell the powerful and affecting story of the ambiguous relationship between a hostage and her captor. Nothing is as it seems in this complex moral world in which good and evil are just two sides of the same coin. This is Nordic drama at its very best: sexy, fun, commercial and crafted with exquisite artistic vision and depth of feeling.”
Ramus Thorsen, co-creator and producer says:“I’m really excited that GREYZONE will be coming to the UK. The level of ambition for this series has always been high and with an international audience in mind. We are thrilled to be partnering with Walter Presents, and together really looking forward to having a British audience engaging in our story and our characters.”
GREYZONE is expected later this year.
