DRG has teamed with the AMC Networks owned streaming service Sundance Now to co-produce six episode true-crime series The Oslo Killing, which is now in production in four countries ahead of a 2019 premiere.
The Oslo Killing examines an unsolved crime, the murder of Anni Nielsen Iranzo, that spans four decades and crosses several countries. The series follows Anni’s daughter Maria’s emotional journey across the world, from her home in Argentina, to reveal the truth and find justice for her mother once and for all.
The series is set up at Monster, Norway’s largest production company. Discovery Networks Norway is also a co-producer. Ingrid Wevang is the director. The Oslo Killing is set to premiere in 2019 on Sundance Now in North America, the UK, Ireland, and German-speaking Europe.
“The Oslo Killing is a mesmerizing and sensational series from Monster, Norway’s biggest production company. Monster excels within this genre and in terms of story arc, dramatic revelations and production values this series will sit right up there with the very best and most compelling true crime documentaries of recent years”, said DRG’s Executive Vice-President of Sales. “It’s a big and important story so we are delighted that Sundance has come onboard as co-producer. Not only does this deal give the series a perfect premiere platform in key territories, but the Sundance involvement will further endorse this series as ‘one to watch’.”
While Jan Diedrichsen, General Manager of SundanceTV and Sundance Now, added: “Sundance Now prides itself in offering a wide-range of top-quality docu-series so we are delighted to extend our relationship with DRG, as well as enter a new partnership with Monster, to become a co-production partner for The Oslo Killing. This extraordinary true story is packed with fascinating characters, political intrigue, jealousy, revenge and at its core, the heartbreaking story of a woman trying to seek justice for her mother’s murder more than 40 years later.”
