Knightfall, Einstein Set for FilmBox Channels


SPI International/FilmBox has picked up the rights for Knightfall from A+E Networks and Einstein from Red Arrow International.

Developed by HISTORY and produced by A+E Studios in association with The Combine and Midnight Radio, Knightfall explores the inner sanctum of the Knights Templar. The series will come to FilmBox channels in Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Albania and ex-Yugoslavia in 2018.

The German crime series Einstein will premiere on FilmBox channels in the fall. The ten-episode show, produced by Zeitsprung Pictures, features a protagonist who is none other than the great-grandson of Albert Einstein.

“We have been focusing on the worldwide expansion of our distribution footprint and we are fully committed to bringing more exclusive content to our channels across all the markets,” said Berk Uziyel, executive director for SPI International/FilmBox. “We are happy to bring to our viewers Knightfall, an excellent series which shows both the history and the legend of the Templars. We are also excited to have acquired Einstein as it offers an innovative approach to the crime format and which appeals to younger audiences.”

Marica Giessen, the senior sales manager for EMEA at A+E Networks, added: “We are extremely excited to cement our partnership with FilmBox with a show like Knightfall. We know their audience will love the characters and storytelling.”
