Espresso Media International has closed a new partnership with Nordic Entertainment Group’s (NENT) premium SVOD platform Viaplay, beginning with a package of three documentary titles that will be available for Viaplay viewers in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Poland.

“We are thrilled to be starting a new partnership with Viaplay, they are the perfect platform for these premium, stand-out, attention-grabbing documentaries,” says Jessica Reilly, Head of Sales and Acquisitions at Espresso. “We’re excited for them to reach a Nordic and Polish audience and are delighted to further enhance our reach into these markets.”

Included in the package is "On Broadway" (1x53’). Directed by Academy Award nominee Oren Jacoby, an all-star cast including Hugh Jackman, Helen Mirren, Christine Baranski, and Ian McKellen take the audience behind the scenes of Broadway’s most ground-breaking and beloved shows – and tell the inside story of the last time Broadway came back from the brink.

Viaplay have also taken "Monster in the Shadows", a 3 x 45’ true crime series which premiered on NBCUniversal’s Peacock in 2021. The series tracks the disappearance of Brittney Wood, which captivated the state of Alabama until a shocking revelation about her family caused Brittney’s disappearance to become almost forgotten in the public eye.

Completing the package is "The Price of Honor", an award-winning and bestselling documentary from Espresso’s crime catalogue, examining the murders of teenage sisters Amina and Sarah Said, who were killed in a pre-meditated honor killing by their father and uncles.
