Walter Presents Goes for Dutch Drama Flight HS13


STOCKHOLM: Walter Presents has licensed the drama Flight HS13 from Eccho Rights to stream on its service in the U.K.

Channel 4’s online digital channel for international drama will begin streaming the series, which comes from Dutch producer Column Film, later this year. The series stars top Dutch actors Katja Schuurman, Daniël Boissevain and Jeroen Spitzenberger.

Flight HS13 is based on the original Turkish drama format The End (Son) by Ay Yapim.

Co-founder of Walter Presents and curator Walter Iuzzolino said, “Flight HS13 had me on the edge of my seat throughout. A gripping, contemporary thriller, this combines the sensibility of both The Affair and Homeland in a compelling series that will keep you guessing to the end. We are delighted to be doing our first deal with Eccho Rights and Column Film and given the premium quality of this series, we hope it will be the first of many.”

Nicola Söderlund, the managing partner at Eccho Rights, added, “We are so excited to bring this series to new audiences. It is a real rollercoaster of a story and viewers will be gripped from start to finish. The original script has fascinated television producers and there are several further new versions currently in various stages of development around the world.”
