Global Screen Picks Up & Sells New Content


Global Screen has acquired season two of the mystery series 3Hz and scored sales for other titles that it will be presenting at MIPCOM.

The Belgian series 3Hz follows young Felix, who can listen to the past through his vintage walkman. Together with his best friends, he sets out to find answers about his mother’s mysterious death and discovers an environmental scandal.

Directed by Sander Brants, 3Hz is produced by De Mensen (Nighthawks). Global Screen has sold the first season to France TV Jeunesse (France), NRK (Norway), SVT (Sweden) and DR (Denmark).

3Hz is a great series for kids and teens who like exciting, mysterious stories,” said Julia Weber, head of international acquisitions and sales at Global Screen. “Unlike other kids’ series, this one is also enjoyed by their parents. The child actors do an amazing job, and the story is so thrilling and excitingly fresh. After season one, the second season is eagerly awaited.”

Global Screen recently sold the drama Mountain Murders, starring Andreas Giebel (SOKO 5113, Tatort), Peter Marton (Dunkelstadt) and Ines Lutz (Hubert ohne Staller, Der Bergdoktor), to TV2 in Denmark. The German series, produced by Lucky Bird Pictures in cooperation with Global Screen, centers on the criminal cases of a mismatched pair of detectives in a picturesque idyll. It is directed by Carsten Fiebeler (Hubert ohne Staller) and Tom Zenker (Die Rosenheim Cops).

Weber said, “Mountain Murders is a feel-good light crime series that takes you to a place where crime doesn’t seem to be possible. The charismatic Andreas Giebel breathes life into his role and shows impressively.”

Additionally, Global Screen has sold the period drama The Palace to Danmarks Radio (Denmark), NRK (Norway) and Yle (Finland). Starring Svenja Jung (Deutschland 89), Daniel Donskoy (Victoria, The Crown) and Heino Ferch (Ku’Damm, Downfall) and produced by Constantin Television for ZDF, is set against the backdrop of Berlin’s great revue theater in the 1980s. It tells the story of two women who are searching for their roots.

The Palace is a story of fate, emotions and risks—all interwoven in the tragic reality of a divided Germany,” Weber said. “The visuals are so authentic, the storyline so thrilling; it is a great pleasure to watch.”

Global Screen will be presenting 3Hz, Mountain Murders, The Palace and more at MIPCOM.
