We Got This Sells to Sundance Now


Banijay Rights has licensed the crime thriller We Got This to AMC Networks in the U.S., Canada and U.K. for its streaming service Sundance Now.

The 6×45-minute series sees George English, an American living in Sweden, try to solve his financial woes with an unlikely solution: a 50 million Swedish krona reward for solving the 30-year-old murder of the former prime minister, Olof Palme. Schiaffino Musarra stars as English and is also the series creator and head writer.

Winner of the Series Mania 2018 co-pitch, We Got This is produced by Banijay Group’s Jarowskij and Film I Väst for public broadcaster SVT and Viaplay. Sundance Now will feature its U.S. and Canadian premiere in September 2020 with its U.K. date to be determined.

Andreas Lemos, VP of sales for North America at Banijay Rights, commented, “We are thrilled to have a prestigious partner like Sundance Now on board for We Got This. North American and U.K. audiences will soon be able to enjoy this entertaining dark comedy born out of the unique mind of star and creator Musarra but built around the true-life mystery surrounding the assassination of Swedish PM Olof Palme.”

Shannon Cooper, VP of programming at Sundance Now, added, “Sundance Now subscribers love to stream stories based on true crimes so this fascinating and funny approach to a real event makes for an extremely enjoyable series. We’re excited to partner with our friends at Banijay Rights to bring this true-life mystery to viewers in the U.S. and U.K.”
