Honour pre-sold to German Streaming Service TVNOW

Eccho Rights has completed the sale of HONOUR to Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland (RTL Germany), before the series’ official launch in the international market place at this week’s MIPTV.

The Swedish thriller is produced by Bigster for Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group), the home of the premium Nordic streaming service Viaplay. The series has already pre-sold to Belgian public service broadcaster VRT ahead of its pan-Nordic Viaplay premiere scheduled for autumn 2019.

Mediengruppe RTL has acquired HONOUR for its new video streaming service TVNOW, where the series will join an exclusive line up of subscription content.

“With TVNOW we recently launched a new full-featured and stand-alone streaming service for the mass market to entertain, inform and move people all over Germany. We have followed the development of this project closely and are so excited by the themes, the style of the production and the refreshing take on a Nordic crime thriller, which ideally compliments our variety of high-quality programmes which TVNOW has to offer” says Moritz Pohl Head of VoD Content at Mediengruppe RTL Deutschland.

Created by and starring a group of Sweden’s most renowned female actors, HONOUR follows four partners in a law firm whose reputation is suddenly at stake. As they start to receive a string of dark and sinister threats, they understand that someone is about to unveil a terrible secret that they have spent 20 years working to cover up.

Alexandra Rapaport, Julia Dufvenius and Anja Lundqvist star in the series which they co-created with fellow actor Sofia Helin. Eva Röse, known to international audiences through the Maria Wern franchise, is also a part of the lead cast.

“Germany is a key market for Nordic drama, but with a huge increase in quality productions coming from across the region, the competition is fierce and a series has to set itself apart from the traditional Noir that has been so successful in recent years. HONOUR combines crime drama elements with warmth, humour and a unique female perspective that I think a lot of buyers have been yearning for,” says Nicola Söderlund, Managing Partner at Eccho Rights.
