Eccho Rights Launching 8 Words at NATPE


Eccho Rights has entered into an agreement with Skai in Greece to represent the drama series 8 Words, launching the title as part of its lineup for NATPE Virtual Miami.

Produced by Make It Productions, 8 Words tells the story of Odysseas, a free-spirited and passionate artist, and his brother Michael, an ambitious and ruthless politician. The brothers find themselves in a love triangle after Michael marries Iliana, with whom Odysseas is madly in love. The family infighting is only a part of a web of secrets, lies and conspiracies that started with eight words uttered years prior.

Fredrik af Malmborg, managing director at Eccho Rights, said: “This is a very exciting new title that we can’t wait to share with the world. A long-running series, with passionate romance, family struggles and thrilling criminal intrigue, it has all the ingredients that we look for when seeking international success.”

Louis Xenopoulos, program director at Skai TV, said: “Eccho Rights has a great reputation in the international marketplace with long-running drama series, and we are very happy to contribute the first Greek title in their catalog.”
