U.K., U.S. Deals for Baltic Crimes


The crime drama Baltic Crimes has been sold into 95 countries, including the U.S., France, the U.K., Japan and Spain.

Produced by Tim Gehrke with Razor Film Production and Polyphon Film, the series centers on mother and daughter investigators Karin Lossow, a former district attorney who has returned to the island of Usedom after serving a prison sentence, and Julia Thiel, a Detective Chief Superintendent. Together, they investigate criminal cases that take place on the Baltic island.

OneGate Media signed a string of deals for the 19×90-minute series, including with Channel 4 and Walter Presents in the U.K.

Tania Reichert-Facilides, managing director of OneGate Media, said: “We’re delighted with the incredible response to Baltic Crimes and proud that a German crime series is captivating audiences around the world! There is a huge amount of crime entertainment on the market right now, but what makes this series unique is its balance of arresting crime cases, with deeply engaging characters and relationships. Baltic Crimes represents the high production value of our expanding crime slate as a whole. It’s been amazing to see the success of the series, and we look forward to presenting Baltic Crimes and more content from our slate to more buyers at MIPCOM this year.”
