Eccho Rights has sold a raft of Swedish dramas to various VOD platforms in Japan and South Korea. The list of broadcasters includes TVing and Wowow.

South Korea-based platform TVing has acquired "Threesome," "Love Me," and "Honor," to add to its slate of internatinal content, while Wowow in Japan has gotten its hands on the blue-sky crime drama "Hammarvik," as well as "Honour," which was obtained earlier this year. "Honour," produced by Bigster, has now premiered in more than 60 territories worldwide. The third season of the female-led legal thriller is currently shooting in Stockholm, slated for a spring 2022 release on Viaplay.

TVing serves as the most recent major international platform to acquire "Threesome," following sealed deals with Channel 4 in the UK, CANAL+ in France and RTL in Germany. The Yellow Bird production made its debut  across the Nordics on NENT Group’s streamer Viaplay in August. “'Threesome' has established itself as one of our most in-demand properties, since winning universal critical acclaim in Sweden after its release earlier this year,” says Nicola Söderlund, Managing partner at Eccho Rights.

"Hammarvik," produced by Nordisk Film & TV, was created exclusively for television by multi-million selling novelist Camilla Läckberg. The title is one of NENT Group’s most successful titles of all time, watched by record audiences on both TV3 and streamer Viaplay. Season three of the blue-sky crime drama premieres 12th December on Viaplay. Romantic comedy-drama "Love Me" by Warner Bros. International, also garnered record viewing records for Viaplay. The title has won a number of awards, including Sweden’s television prize Kristallen, for Best TV Drama in 2020.
