RTL Crime to Air Globo Thriller Merciless


Globo has licensed the series Merciless to the RTL Group, which will deliver the thriller on the pay-TV channel RTL Crime.

Written by Glória Perez (Edge of Desire, India: A Love Story), Merciless centers on Edu (Bruno Gagliasso, Rising Sun), a good-looking, smart and articulate man behind a series of murders that have baffled police. The thriller will premiere in July in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Luxembourg.

RTL Group’s head of the digital division programs, Klaus Holtmann, commented: “Merciless is a perfectly crafted, emotional, edgy and last but not least, a very scary serial killer series that easily surpasses the international market standard. We are confident that our subscribers on RTL Crime will very much appreciate our first Brazilian series ever.”
