all3media international has clinched its first deals for Blinded, with ProSiebenSat.1 in Germany signing up for the Swedish-language thriller, alongside additional broadcasters in Europe and Australia.
ProSiebenSat.1 licensed broadcast rights in Germany for Blinded and will launch the eight-part drama on SAT.1 emotions in spring 2020. NPO in the Netherlands and Sýn hf in Iceland also secured TV rights, while SBS in Australia signed digital rights.
Blinded (known locally as Fartblinda) is an original series inspired by real events, based on the book by award-winning investigative journalist Carolina Neurath. The drama premiered in August on C More, followed by a September debut on TV4. It is produced by FLX, in association with all3media international.
Jonathan Hughes, sales manager for EMEA North at all3media international, commented, “Blinded is a timely and globally relevant drama that takes audiences on a thrilling journey right to the heart of Stockholm’s financial world, a place where our characters navigate a fine line between profit and risk. The demand for international drama is stronger than ever, and we are continuing to expand our portfolio by looking beyond English language content and partnering with acclaimed creative talent from around the world. As part of that strategy, this major international coproduction represented our first key investment in Scandinavia, and we’re delighted to see that now bearing fruit with these initial deals.”
