SILVER SPOON PICKED UP FOR REMAKE IN KOREA

South Korean producer Supermoon Pictures has acquired remake rights for Silver Spoon, the hit Russian crime thriller from Sreda Production Company. This is the first time a Russian drama format has been picked up for adaptation in South Korea.

Silver Spoon is the story of a young man, Igor, whose father grows tired of his playboy lifestyle and arranges a job for him in the police force. Though Igor is lazy, spoiled and unmotivated, he shows an instinct for detective work and soon starts to unravel mysteries that have long evaded his colleagues - including the case of his own mother’s death, where his investigations turn up uncomfortable questions for his father.

Perfidia to get UK remake

Perfidia, the award winning Argentine drama, is heading to the UK with DLT at the helm. Margaret Enefer and Donald Taffner Jr. will develop the project, with acclaimed British writer, Alan Whiting (Wire in the Blood, Half Broken Things, The Scarlet Pimpernel), adapting the three-part drama for UK audiences.

DLT’s President Don Taffner Jr. comments, “Perfidia gripped me right from the start with its combination evocative human emotion, thrilling plot and unexpected twists and turns. With Alan’s exceptional talent, this will be an unmissable piece of television.”

This is the second remake deal Eccho Rights has signed with DLT, following last year's deal on Scandi hospital drama Nurses (Yellow Film).

Nicola Söderlund, managing partner at Eccho Rights, says, “We’ve been selling a lot of shows into Latin America, so it’s great to announce a deal that sees traffic in the other direction. It’s a region that is traditionally known for the telenovela, but Latin America also has a growing reputation for high-end dramas. It's wonderful that DLT have recognised the quality of Perfidia and with a top-class team onboard we are sure the remake will be stunning."
