Walter Presents Picks Up Belgian Thriller Tabula Rasa


Walter Presents has licensed the Belgian psychological thriller Tabula Rasa for the U.K.

Produced by Caviar Films and sold by ZDF Enterprises, Tabula Rasa stars Veerle Baetens as Mie, a young woman with amnesia. Locked up in a secure psychiatric hospital, Mie was the last person to be seen with a man who has since disappeared.

The series is set to premiere on Channel 4 this summer, with all episodes immediately available to view on All 4. Co-written by Malin-Sarah Gozin, Veerle Baetens and Christophe Dirickx, Tabula Rasa marks the second Caviar production to be picked up by Walter Presents.

Walter Presents’ co-founder and curator Walter Iuzzolino said: “Malin-Sarah has a gift for creating unique dramas which never cease to surprise and delight. This is a superb, taut, psychological thriller that scares and intrigues in equal measure. Tabula Rasa is sure to make a lasting impression with U.K. audiences.”

Fred Burcksen, president and CEO of ZDF Enterprises, added: “I’m delighted to have sealed our ninth deal with Walter Presents, who continue to champion and raise the profile of foreign-language drama globally. Tabula Rasa is a ZDFneo and a ZDF Enterprises co-production and we’re very proud to have it as a jewel in our catalog.”
