Flight HS13 arrives in the UK

Walter Presents, the acclaimed foreign language drama service, have agreed a deal to take Flight HS13 to the UK. Channel 4’s online digital channel for international drama will be streaming the series from Dutch producer Column Film, later this year.

Flight HS13 (Vlucht HS13) which is distributed internationally by Eccho Rights, was a big hit with audiences in the Netherlands late last year, scoring great ratings and more than doubling the channel NPO3’s average share over its 10-episode run. The show stars top Dutch actors Katja Schuurman, Daniël Boissevain and Jeroen Spitzenberger.

Co-founder of Walter Presents and curator Walter Iuzzolino says, “Flight HS13 had me on the edge of my seat throughout. A gripping, contemporary thriller, this combines the sensibility of both the ‘Affair’ and ‘Homeland’ in a compelling series that will keep you guessing to the end. We are delighted to be doing our first deal with Eccho Rights and Column Film and given the premium quality of this series, we hope it will be the first of many.”

Nicola Söderlund, Managing Partner at Eccho Rights adds, “We are so excited to bring this series to new audiences. It is a real rollercoaster of a story and viewers will be gripped from start to finish. The original script has fascinated television producers and there are several further new versions currently in various stages of development around the world."

Based on original format The End (Son) by Ay Yapim, Flight HS13 is the first example of a Turkish Drama script being successfully commissioned for remake in Western Europe.

Flight HS13 tells the story of Liv Kraamer (Schuurman) a woman devastated by her husband’s tragic death in a plane crash. But when it emerges he met another woman at the airport, and never boarded the flight, her grief turns to suspicion.
