After securing a UK deal with Channel 4 and Walter Presents earlier this year, international distributor About Premium Content has secured a raft of international deals for Nordic thriller Alex.
The series has now been sold to ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE. and Polyband in Germany, Amazon Prime Video in France, MHZ in the United States, My Nordic TV in China, Canal + in Poland and Pop TV in Slovenia.
Alex follows the hardened – and corrupt – cop Alex Leko, who finally decides to leave the underworld behind. However, his darkest connections keep pulling him back, and soon he finds himself and his family in great danger. At the same time, Alex gets a new partner, Frida with a hidden agenda. The drama series is produced by SF Studios and stars Dragomir Mrsic and Rakel Wärmländer.
The series premiere debuted on Channel 4 last month, before the rest of the show’s first season was made available on Walter Presents (via VOD platform All 4). A second season has already been commissioned and recently started filming.
