Scott, Bavaria, Lionheart team up on ‘Hangman’s Daughter’

Supernatural series to shoot in Munich

BERLIN — Scott Pictures is teaming up with Bavaria Pictures and Lionheart Entertainment on an English-language TV series based on Oliver Poetzsch’s bestselling book triloby “The Hangman’s Daughter.”

Lionheart acquired the rights to the series, which includes “The Hangman’s Daughter,” “The Dark Monk: A Hangman’s Tale” and “The Beggar King: A Hangman’s Tale.”

The books are based on a 17th-century Bavarian story about a hangman who, with the help of the local physician’s son, investigates a series of murders linked to witchcraft and other occult occurrences surrounding the disappearance of his daughter.

Scott Pictures and Bavaria Pictures, a joint venture of Bavaria Film in Munich and Berlin’s Senator Film, will finance and co-produce with Munich-based Lionheart.

The production is set to shoot this summer at Bavaria Studios in Munich.

Scott Pictures’ Scott Steindorff and Dylan Russell will executive produce along with Bavaria Pictures’ Jan Kaiser, Helge Sasse and Ulf Israel from Senator Film, and Juergen Behnke and Juergen Hebstreit from Lionheart.

Steindorff’s credits include “Las Vegas,” starring James Caan and Josh Duhamel, the 2005 miniseries “Empire Falls,” with Paul Newman and Ed Harris, and such features as “Love in the Time of Cholera,” “Lincoln Lawyer,” the upcoming “Jane Got a Gun,” starring Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender, and the “The Master and Margarita,” slated for production this fall.
