Eccho Rights to distribute new Viaplay thriller Conspiracy of Silence

Conspiracy of Silence, the newly announced political thriller produced by Brain Academy for Viaplay, will be distributed internationally by Eccho Rights.

Exploring the murky world of the international arms trade, Conspiracy of Silence stars Jens Hultén (Mission:Impossible - Rogue Nation, Skyfall, Johan Falk) as a former weapons dealer forced in to exile, who returns to Sweden on a quest for vengeance. The series highlights both the shattered personal lives that the weapons business leaves in its wake, and the moral hypocrisy that allows the trade to flourish.

The series also stars Vera Vitali (Arne Dahl, Brimstone) and Henrik Mestad (Lillyhammer, Occupied) and is created by Peter Arrhenius (Welcome To Sweden).

Conspiracy of Silence is to be directed by Charlotte Brändström, known around the world for her work on acclaimed series such as Outlander, Colony and Tyrant.

The series will broadcast on Viaplay across the Nordic region in 2018, while the creative team and cast have been drawn from an international talent pool to ensure the global success of the series. Pinewood Studios in the UK will also have an international co-producer credit.

Nicola Söderlund, Managing Partner at Eccho Rights says “this is such an exciting series that shows the ambition of Scandinavian producers to step in to new territory, in a post-Nordic Noir world! An international cast, creative team with years of experience from both sides of the Atlantic, and a subject matter which provokes strong feelings and affects people the world over, are all elements that we feel guarantee the success of Conspiracy of Silence in the international market.”
