Walter Presents Picks Up Italian Drama Maltese 


Walter Presents has licensed the Italian mafia series Maltese from ZDF Enterprises for the U.K.

Maltese is an eight-part series produced by Palomar, RAI and maze pictures. It stars Kim Rossi Stuart and Rike Schmid.

Walter Iuzzolino, the Italian born curator of Walter Presents, said: “I’ve been on a mission to find a great Italian drama for the last three years and this is truly an exceptional one. It’s a violent, elegant, nostalgic piece that combines the pathos of The Godfather with the achingly stylish beauty of Mad Men.”

Fred Burcksen, the executive VP and COO of ZDF Enterprises, added: “Maltese is the ideal complement to Walter Presents’ impressive program lineup. We are proud to be able to contribute yet another great production to this exciting service.”
