Eccho Rights (Sweden) launches new dramas on contemporary themes from different origins at LA Virtual Screenings, including the new British miniseries Compulsion (4x’45 or 2x’90) by LA Productions for Channel 5.
After surviving a major disaster, a paramedic appears to be dealing with the outside but, privately, is suffering from severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). To escape her pain, she has fallen into addiction and is about to lose everything until hope arrives just in time: another woman helps her in her most desperate hour, but… can she trust him? she?
On the other hand, the distributor continues to bet heavily on dramatic content from Turkey, combined with a line-up of series on contemporary themes from various origins such as the UK, Nordic countries and South Korea.
From the Turkish series catalog, the executive especially promotes the latest blockbuster series from producers OGM Pictures, Chrysalis (163x’45), which has taken the domestic and international market by storm since April 2021, leading every week and winning praise of critics and fandom.
Produced by Karamel Yapim for Kanal7, there are two proposals: Legacy (510x’45, 2 seasons), the latest daily drama series that captivated viewers around the world and is now promoting its third season that will arrive in 2022-2023; and The Promise (879x’45), a global hit sold in 60 markets in its four seasons with the fifth already confirmed. And from OGM for TV8, The Red Room (210x’45), a phenomenon that has captivated audiences around the world in its two seasons.
Eccho Rights’ catalog for this market closes with four series from outside Turkey: Clapperboard’s Desperate Measures (4x’60) for Channel 5, an intense thriller that follows a single mother who must protect her innocent son; and by Yellow Bird for Viaplay (Sweden), Threesome (8x’23), a romantic story for young adults about a Swedish couple living in London sold to Channel 4 (UK), RTL (Germany), CANAL+ (France) and TVing (South Korea) and SBS Viceland/SBS On Demand in Australia.
Finally, two South Korean thrillers: High Class (16x’70) by CJ ENM for tvN where Cho Yeo-jeong plays his first dramatic role in a series after winning the Oscar for Parasite; and the three-movie saga (Good Police, Follower and Supermodel) for TV Midnight Thriller (3×100) by KT Studio Genie for Olleh TV/Seezn, with shared themes of despair, trapped and endangered people facing impossible choices and seeking routes to survival and redemption.
