Viaplay Original Conspiracy of Silence Set for MIPTV Screening


Conspiracy of Silence, which is set to launch later this year on Viaplay’s platforms across Scandinavia, will have an exclusive premiere screening at MIPTV.

Produced by Brain Academy, Conspiracy of Silence shines a light on the corrupt Swedish weapons industry. It looks at both the personal lives that the weapons business leaves in its wake and the moral hypocrisy that allows the trade to flourish.

The screening, which will place on April 9 in Auditorium A in the Palais des Festivals, will be introduced by series director Charlotte Brändström (Outlander, Madam Secretary) alongside Nicola Söderlund from international distributor Eccho Rights.

“We are hugely excited about bringing this blockbuster series to an international audience,” said Söderlund. “It is a spectacular thriller but also a very human story, that mixes serious political corruption and illegal international trade, with family issues and personal conflicts.”

Daniel Lägersten, producer of Conspiracy of Silence, added: “This is an important series that will show a different side to Sweden: a country with an immaculate reputation in international diplomacy, but also a leading player in an industry that fuels wars. We believe it is a huge story to tell the world.”
