ECCHO RIGHTS AND WOWOW BRING HONOUR TO JAPAN

Leading Japanese broadcaster WOWOW has acquired hit drama series Honour. Produced by Bigster for Nordic Entertainment Group’s Viaplay, Honour is already one of the most successful Swedish TV exports of all time, and has now sold to more than 60 territories worldwide. The series will occupy one of WOWOW's Premiere slots on its WOWOW On Demand streaming service, where top US and European drama series are showcased exclusively for the Japanese audience.

Debuting in 2019, HONOUR has proven hugely popular both in Sweden and abroad. The series became the first Viaplay Original ever to secure international pre-sales and returned in the spring of 2021 for a well received second season. A third season has been commissioned, to premiere in 2022.
