About Premium Content (APC) has secured the first wave of international broadcast deals for its brand-new Belgian political drama series "Pandore" (10 x 52’). New broadcasters on board include AMC Networks International Southern Europe for Spain and Portugal, RTP2 in Portugal, NPO in the Netherlands, Yle in Finland, Stod 2 in Iceland, TV5 in Canada and Viaplay in Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Laurent Boissel and Emmanuelle Guilbart, Joint-CEOs and Co-Founders at APC, said: “'Pandore' is an addictive, cross-generational thriller for our times, written and directed by a hugely talented trio of women. The series explores the escalating clash of justice, politics and media, with the result being an original and gripping drama that has already celebrated a great response since premiering earlier this year. We’re excited to have secured a robust group of leading broadcast partners to bring this series to new audiences around the world.”

"Pandore" is produced by Artemis Productions for RTBF, and co-directed and co-written by Savina Dellicour, Anne Coesens and Vania Leturcq. APC handles worldwide distribution rights for the series.

"Pandore" tells the story of the conflictual relationship between a politician and an investigating judge. While the Belgian conservative party’s campaign is disrupted by a corruption investigation, the rape of a young woman brings together four very different characters: an investigating judge, a politician, an activist and a journalist. Each of them will defend their own truth.

The French-language political thriller was part of the official selection for Series Mania 2021 and won the Audience Award at Luchon TV Festival 2022. The series had a successful premiere on RTBF in February 2022 and is the best Belgian series launch on the channel since 2016 across all target audiences, as well as being a record-breaking hit on its catch-up service Auvio, where it now stands as the most viewed TV series ever on the platform.
