France-based financier and distributor About Premium Content has secured a deal with SBS Australia for Nordic drama Valkyrien.
SBS will air Valkyrien later this year following the show’s UK launch on Channel 4 in June, closely followed by on-demand Walter Presents, also in the UK.
The series has aired on Walter Presents US.
Valkyrien, made for NRK in Norway by Tordenfilm, is an eight-part drama about a physician trying to save his wife’s life in an underground clinic, making dubious alliances, and navigating between darkness and light while keeping up appearances in the real world – where eveybody thinks she is dead.
Emmanuelle Guilbart, Joint CEO and co-founder at APC, said: “Valkyrien is proving a hit in Norway and we are confident the series will win legions of fans once it starts to roll out globally.”
