Boutique financier and distributor About Premium Content (APC) has signed a major new broadcast deal with SBS Australia for its award-winning drama series VALKYRIEN.
The new broadcaster will air VALKYRIEN later this year following the UK launch of the series on Channel 4 in June, closely followed by Walter Presents in the UK. The series has already aired on Walter Presents in the US to critical acclaim.
VALKYRIEN is already proving to be a major hit in its home territory of Norway, fighting off tough competition to win the much coveted Best TV Drama and Best Male Actor (Pål Sverre Hagen) awards at the Norwegian National Television Awards. The series was also nominated for Best Female Actor (Ellen Birgitte Winther) and has previously won accolades for Best Production Design, with further nominations for Best Editing and Best Cinematography as well.
VALKYRIEN is a new 8-hour high-concept original series in which APC has invested and holds all global distribution rights. It is produced by Norwegian indie Tordenfilm for NRK and is written by showrunner Erik Richter Strand.
VALKYRIEN brings an original flavour to the Nordic Noir genre. The series plunges the audience into the world of a physician trying to save his wife’s life in an underground clinic, making dubious alliances, and navigating between darkness and light while keeping appearances in the ‘real’ world - where eveybody thinks she is dead. Strong characters, darks secrets and murky motives are the key threads of this unexpected new Norwegian drama thriller.
Emmanuelle Guilbart, Joint CEO and Co-Founder at APC says “VALKYRIEN is already proving to be a hit in Norway and we are thrilled with the latest award win. We are confident that the series will win legions of fans once it starts to roll out globally.”
