Gaumont Television Europe, Matador Film and Eyeworks Scandi Fiction are to coproduce a 12x60mins thriller drama from Real Humans’ Lars Lundström.
1001 is billed as an “English language modern day thriller with a high degree of fictionalisation and cinematic imagery, including our own world, universe and mythology”.
It follows a policewoman who is contacted by someone claiming to have committed a murder linked to a medical research project 30 years before. The person demands cash be transferred to their bank accounts or more people would be killed.
“We are starting to see a huge trend into drama production, making Europe a new frontier for television,” said Christophe Riandee, Vice CEO of GTE parent studio Gaumont.
