Kudos to remake ‘Real Humans’

Swedish sci-fi skein to bow on SVT

LONDON — U.K. shingle Kudos Film and Television is to develop a remake of what it hopes will be another high-profile Scandinavian TV drama, Swedish sci-fi skein “Real Humans.”

Both the format and international rights to “Real Humans,” produced in Sweden by Sveriges Television (SVT) and Matador Films, have been acquired by Shine, which owns Kudos.

The 10-part “Real Humans” is due to bow on SVT in early 2012.

Story focuses on a new generation of robots, so-called “Hu-bots,” so advanced it is almost impossible to distinguish them from people.

Created and written by Lars Lundstrom, “Real Humans” is helmed by Harald Hamrell and Levan Akin.

Exec producers are Stefan Baron, head of drama at SVT, and Henrik Widman, managing director of Matador Films.

The Kudos re-make will be co-produced with Matador Films.

SVT is co-producers of the “Millennium” trilogy, one of several recent Scandinavian dramas that have drawn attention to the region’s talent for screen fiction.

Others include “The Killing,” made by Danish pubcaster DR, and a local version of “Wallander,” produced in Sweden for Yellow Bird and shown on SVT.

Shine is run by Elisabeth Murdoch and was bought by News Corp. earlier this year. One of its biggest hits is “MasterChef.”
