Presales in Place for The Vanishing Triangle


Eccho Rights has secured presales in a number of territories for the upcoming Irish drama thriller The Vanishing Triangle.

The Vanishing Triangle was commissioned by Virgin Media in Ireland and AMC Networks’ Sundance Now in the U.S. and Canada. AMC Networks’ Acorn TV secured the U.K. premiere and licensed the series for several other territories in its footprint. SBS picked up Australian rights, and the series is also sold across the Nordics, with SVT (Sweden), DR (Denmark), NRK (Norway) and Yle (Finland) licensing the title. VRT will air The Vanishing Triangle in Belgium.

Produced by Park Films (Ireland), in association with Paper Plane Productions (U.S.) and 87 Films (U.K.), The Vanishing Triangle is inspired by true events that shook Ireland in the 1990s, when several women disappeared, never to be seen again.

The project stars India Mullen (Normal People, Brassic) and Allen Leech (Downton Abbey, Bohemian Rhapsody), who both also executive produce.

“Although The Vanishing Triangle is set in the 1990s in Ireland, the themes of this story are universal and still absolutely relevant today, and that, combined with the fantastic talent and strong editorial, is what makes the show so appealing internationally,” said Lucy Roberts, director of sales for Western Europe at Eccho Rights.

Stuart Shaw, managing director of Acorn Media International (Acorn TV), said: “Acorn TV in the U.K. is delighted to partner with Eccho Rights on this gripping crime drama, allowing us to continue super-serving our loyal viewers with can’t-miss programming. Aligning with our sister channel Sundance Now is an added bonus.”

SBS’s head of network programming, Peter Andrews, said: “SBS and SBS On Demand are the destinations for the world’s most distinctive storytelling with insightful stories and inspiring entertainment. We are the Australian home to the world’s best drama, whether it is locally produced, foreign language or English language premium drama. SBS has always hunted down the best premium storytelling that raises awareness, encourages acceptance, and celebrates differences, whether locally produced or from across the globe. We’re excited to add The Vanishing Triangle—this unbelievable crime thriller to our vast collection of content and are absolutely primed to deliver this to our audience.”
