Davos 1917 Heads to North America


Davos 1917 has been picked up by Global Series Network for Walter Presents in North America via a deal with Global Screen.

The spy drama takes place during World War I in Davos, Switzerland, where secret agents of the world’s powers lurk around every corner. A young Swiss nurse gets caught between them as she does everything she can to win back her illegitimate daughter.

Global Screen has also sold the series to RTP in Portugal and Filmin in Spain and Portugal. These deals are in addition to the recently announced sales to Mediaset in Italy, MTV A in Hungary and ORF in Austria. The six-parter debuted in December on SRF in Switzerland and ARD in Germany.

The Davos 1917 cast features Dominique Devenport (Sisi), David Kross (The Reader), Jeanette Hain (Never Look Away), Max Herbrechter (Rauhnächte), Sunnyi Melles (Triangle of Sadness) and Stipe Erceg (Vienna Blood).

The series is created in German and Swiss-German with English subtitles and is dubbed in French and Italian. It is produced by Contrast Film, Letterbox Filmproduktion, Amalia Film, SRF and ARD Degeto.

“We are very proud to be representing Davos 1917, and it is a real pleasure to announce a significant North American sale at this early stage,” said Brianne Bonney, head of TV sales at Global Screen. “It is a lavishly produced and emotionally charged series set against the stunning backdrop of the Alps. With standout performances by exceptional actors, this is a thriller that dramatically reveals behind-the-scenes global events that dictated the end of WWI.”
