Red Arrow launching Scandi noir with US twist

100CodeRed Arrow International is launching 100 Code at MIPCOM, a Scandi noir series with a US twist.

The series stars Michael Nyqvist (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Dominic Monaghan (Lost) as Swedish and US cops brought together, in Sweden, to investigate a series of grisly murders.

The Scandi noir series differs from others in that it has a US showrunner, Crash’s Bobby Moresco, at the helm.

The show will debut on Kanal 5 and Sky Deutschland and the Swedish commercial broadcaster and German pay TV platform are copro partners on the show.

Red Arrow International has sales rights and will give it its international launch at the market.

Red Arrow’s other scripted fare for the market includes Esio Trot, the TV movie adaptation of the eponymous Roald Dahl novel, which Red Arrow prodco Endor is making for the BBC in the UK.

It will also have Bosch, the Amazon original crime series, based on Michael Connelly’s internationally bestselling novels.
