ECCHO RIGHTS BRINGS SCANDINAVIAN TITLES TO TOPIC

Eccho Rights has sold a trio of Scandinavian titles to Topic, a new streaming service launching on November 21, 2019 in the United States and Canada.

Highly successful Swedish drama HONOUR, which was recently renewed for a second season, premiered on Viaplay in August to record-breaking viewing figures. Based on an idea by Sofia Helin the series was developed together with Alexandra Rapaport, Julia Dufvenius and Anja Lundqvist who also star. The series is produced by Stockholm-based production company Bigster (co-headed by Rapaport).

Coming from Sweden as well is the gripping thriller CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE produced by Brain Academy. Directed by Charlotte Brändström, known around the world for her work on acclaimed series such as Outlander, the series explores the murky world of the international arms trade. The series premiered on Viaplay in September 2018.

Award-winning series INVISIBLE HEROES follows the remarkable exploits of Finnish diplomat Tapani Brotherus. The series was commissioned in a unique collaboration between Finnish broadcaster YLE and Chilevisión with a successful run in Finland this spring and an upcoming launch this fall in Chile. Recently, the drama was awarded the Mini-Series Silver Bird Prize at this year’s Seoul Drama Awards as well as the Special Jury Award at the Festival de la Fiction in La Rochelle. Furthermore, Invisible Heroes was nominated for the Venice TV Awards as Best TV Series and was part of the lineup of the Serial Killer Festival in Brno, the Serielizados Fest in Barcelona and the Göteborg Film Festival.

“We are very happy to start this fruitful collaboration with Topic, bringing quality content from all over the world to the US, a territory that is continuously opening up more to international, Non-English language productions” said Fredrik af Malmborg, Managing Director of Eccho Rights.
