All3Media International Signs Deals for Witness Number 3


All3Media International has scored a round of sales for Story Films’ domestic female-led thriller Witness Number 3.

Following its premiere on Channel 5 in the U.K., Witness Number 3 has launched on Paramount+ Australia and is set to air on TVNZ in New Zealand. Sales have also been secured with NPO in the Netherlands, TV4 in Sweden, MTV in Finland, Virgin Media in Ireland, Turckell’s SVOD service TV+ in Turkey and Turkish-speaking Cyprus and Hellenic in Greece.

Additionally, Acorn signed deals for home-entertainment rights for the series in the U.K., Ireland and Australia.

Written by Thomas Eccleshare and directed by Diarmuid Goggins (Kin), the four-part drama follows Jodie (Nina Toussaint-White), a young mother and hairdresser, who witnesses a man seconds before his murder. After coming forward to give evidence to the police, believing this is the right thing to do, she is shocked when detectives decide to keep her identity secret. Soon it becomes clear there is more at risk than she could have imagined as a terrifying campaign of intimidation to silence her begins.

Maartje Horchner, executive VP of content at All3Media International, commented, “The exceptional team at Story Films’ continue to deliver on premium storytelling, following the smash hit success of their true crime drama The Thief, His Wife and the Canoe. Witness Number 3 is another brilliant drama to add to our slate—a taut thriller with a nailing bitingly tense, powerful script by upcoming screenwriter Thomas Eccleshare, utterly compelling performances and superb cinematography. We’re sure that this Hitchcockian thriller will continue to captivate buyers and audiences around the world.”

David Nath, co-founder of Story Films, commented, “It’s brilliant to see our partnership with All3Media International continuing to thrive, and we’re absolutely thrilled that a global audience will get to Nina Toussaint White’s outstanding performance in this edge-of-the-seat thriller.”
