The agreement will see the series produced by Story House Pictures for Joyn (Germany) and Mega (Chile) reach key European territories, including Spain and the Nordic countries, as well as central and eastern Europe.
Red Arrow Studios International has inked a deal for the thriller "Dignity" (8 x 52’) with HBO Nordic, which sees the broadcaster take pay-TV and SVOD rights for a large sway of Europe, from Central and Eastern Europe to Iberia and the Nordics. The series will launch in markets including Spain, Portugal, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary.
Commissioned by Joyn in Germany and Mega in Chile, Dignity is produced by Chilean film and TV production house Invercine & Wood and German producer Story House Pictures for Joyn (Germany) and Mega (Chile), in coproduction with the Chilean television fund CNTV and Mega.
The series centres on a mysterious Germanic cult called ‘Colonia Dignidad’, established by a former Nazi soldier in Chile, and the quest by a young federal prosecutor to bring him to justice. Based on real events, the series was shot on location at the cult’s former enclave in southern Chile.
Tim Gerhartz, SVP, Global Sales at Red Arrow Studios International, said: “Dignity was Joyn’s first ever original commission and has proved a big success in Germany with viewers and critics. The fact that is it is based on true events gives an added depth and authenticity to this beautifully made series. We are delighted that HBO Nordic has come on board to make this exceptional series available to viewers across Europe.”
"Dignity" has also been selected for CannesSeries 2020.
