HBO Nordics to show Dignity
Red Arrow’s Dignity centres on a German cult in Chile
HBO Nordic has picked up thriller series Dignity for broadcast across the Nordics, Iberia and CEE from Red Arrow Studios International.
The Nordic arm of the US broadcaster has taken pay TV and SVoD rights to the show, which it will launch in markets including Spain, Portugal, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, the Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary.
Based on real events, Dignity (8×52′) revolves around a mysterious Germanic cult in Chile called Colonia Dignidad, established by a former Nazi soldier, and a young federal prosecutor’s quest to bring its leaders to justice.
Coproduced by Chilean prodco Invercine & Wood alongside German prodco Story House Pictures, the drama was jointly commissioned by Chile’s Mega and German outlet Joyn. It was created by María Elena Wood and Patricio Pereira, with Andreas Gutzeit as head writer and Julio Jorquera and Nancy Rivas directing the series.
Red Arrow Studios International holds global distribution rights to Dignity.
Tim Gerhartz, senior VP of global sales at Red Arrow Studios International, said: “Dignity was Joyn’s first ever original commission and has proved a big success in Germany with viewers and critics.
“The fact that it is based on true events gives an added depth and authenticity to this beautifully made series. We are delighted that HBO Nordic has come on board to make this exceptional series available to viewers across Europe.”
