Eccho Rights has licensed Channel 5 drama "Compulsion" to Paramount+, to debut exclusively as an Original scripted series in Australia, LATAM and the Nordics. Produced by LA Productions in association with Eccho Rights, "Compulsion" is a thrilling family drama that follows Jenny, a woman on the verge of losing everything, who meets a stranger who seems to have the answers to her problems.
"'Compulsion' is a gripping thriller, but with a human story at its core, and though Jenny finds herself in an extraordinary situation, international audiences will easily relate to her predicament of just wanting the best for her family,” Lucy Roberts, Director of Sales, Western Europe at Eccho Rights.
Jenny is played by Leanne Best ("Cold Feet"). "Compulsion" also stars Anna Chancellor ("The Watch") and the Oscar winner Hayley Mills ("Pollyanna"). The series is written by Sarah Deane ("Moving On") directed by Noreen Kershaw ("Call the Midwife") and produced by Donna Molloy for LA Productions.
