ZDFneo Boards Danish Thriller Deliver Us


ZDFneo has come on board Deliver Us, from the acclaimed writer and producer team of Christian Torpe and Jesper Morthorst (Rita, Silent Heart, The Mist, Norskov, Heartstone).

The drama follows five people in a small Danish town who join forces and plan the perfect murder of the local town psycho only to realize that once you start playing God, it’s easy to end up as the Devil. The 8×1-hour series is currently in production in Denmark and will premiere in prime time this fall on DR.

Created by Torpe and Marie Østerbye (Rita), Deliver Us is the first project for MOTOR, the Danish production company led by Torpe and Morthorst.

The co-production was brokered by Dynamic Television, which handles worldwide distribution.

Torpe said: “We are very excited that ZDFneo is on board. It is a high-quality network and with them as partners, we will reach a huge German-speaking audience and we are sure the show will resonate with them.”

“Led by a truly all-star team, Deliver Us is a series that reimagines Nordic noir,” said Jan Bennemann, VP of co-productions and acquisitions at Dynamic Television. “We are thrilled to have ZDFneo come onboard and bring this exciting thriller to German audiences.”
