Eccho Rights to Showcase Maria Wern at MIPTV

STOCKHOLM: Eccho Rights is now representing the hit Swedish series Maria Wern on behalf of Warner Bros. and TV4.

The crime series, based on a series of novels by author Anna Jansson, has been a hit in Sweden with productions for both television and cinema since 2008. The Eccho Rights deal includes eight episodes of the series produced by Warner Bros. in 2016, as well as a further eight planned for production later this year.

Maria Wern is one of the best-known Scandinavian crime brands and we are delighted to be involved with taking it further internationally,” says Fredrik af Malmborg, the managing director at Eccho Rights. “A classic murder mystery format, it has a lighter tone than other Scandic noir and crime series that can often seem a little heavy for international buyers, so we see big success for this series in new territories.”
