Eccho Rights presents The Pretender

Eccho Rights have entered into an agreement with Russian producers Amedia Production to distribute brand new crime drama The Pretender. The series, an exciting and stylish 12-parter set after the Revolution of 1917, will air on Channel One in Russia later this year. Eccho Rights will present a first look at The Pretender for international buyers at MIPCOM this month.

The Pretender sees a provincial swindler find a golden opportunity for a big city heist, as a case of mistaken identity leads him in to the heart of the Leningrad police force. But once inside, his talent for police work is irresistible, as he uses his criminal instincts to solve cases that were previously out of reach for the old guard. As he gets particularly close to one new colleague, he decides he must follow this new path turning his back for good on his criminal past. But when gangsters to whom he still owes money show up, his true identity, new career and budding romance are all at risk.

“The Pretender is a fantastic production that we were eager to represent as soon as we saw it,” says Nicola Söderlund, Managing Partner at Eccho Rights. “The pacing, the look and the relationships will appeal to fans of crime series, period drama and even romance, where there is a lot of heart in this story about a man trying to do the right thing.”
