Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) has revealed plans for the first-ever Estonian Viaplay original: Who Shot Otto Mueller?
Helmed by award-winning director René Vilbre and written by Birk Rohelend, the crime drama stars Jaan Rekkor, Tambet Tuisk and Märt Avandi. Who Shot Otto Mueller? will premiere exclusively on NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service in Estonia and across the Baltic region.
In the series, a famous businessman and former Soviet wrestling star is found murdered in his manor on his 65th birthday. Detectives interrogate eight family members in turn, and dark truths about a successful and powerful man who once killed a wolf with his bare hands gradually come to light. Everyone has a story about Otto Mueller—and everyone has a motive.
Cuba Films is producing, and filming will begin in September near Tallinn.
Filippa Wallestam, NENT Group’s chief content officer, said: “This groundbreaking show says everything about Viaplay’s storytelling ambitions for Estonia. By bringing together the best local talent to tell the most relevant local stories, we want to help take Estonian streamed content to the next level. Who Shot Otto Mueller? gives a smart, complex and very Estonian twist to a classic crime format proven to thrill audiences everywhere.”
