Walter Presents investigates Case from Iceland

Scripted-logo-460_2CASEUK on-demand service Walter Presents has acquired the 9x60mins crime drama Case, which hails from Channel 2 in Iceland.

The deal with distributor Red Arrow International also includes Scandinavian comedy-drama Hellfjord, which runs to seven half-hours.

Case comes from Sagafilm and was for Channel 2 in Iceland. It is the latest drama from prolific Icelandic director Baldvin Z (Trapped, Life in a Fishbowl), and was written by Andri Óttarsson and Þorleifur Örn Arnarson.

Red Arrow has also sold case to HBO Europe for territories including Piland, Hungary and the Czech Republic.

Walter Presents is the on-demand, foreign-language VOD service from Channel 4 and Global Series Network. It sits within C4’s All 4 on-demand platform.

“We are delighted that Case has been picked up for the UK and CEE by Walter Presents and HBO Europe,” said Red Arrow International managing director Henrik Pabst. “These are platforms that perfectly align with the kind of intelligent, challenging and thrilling drama coming out of Iceland.”
