Keshet International has acquired the Scandinavian noir dramedy “Fallet” (“The Case”), directed by Simen Alsvik (“Lillyhammer”) and produced by Swedish outfit FLX (“The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared”).
“Fallet,” shot in English and Swedish, will be presented at MipTV, the Cannes-set global TV showcase next month. “Fallet” follows two unlikely detectives, Lisa Henni (“Easy Money”), a Swedish police officer with self-esteem issues, and Adam Godley (“Breaking Bad”), her cowardly British colleague, who team up to solve a gruesome murder.
Based on Keshet Broadcasting’s original Israeli show “Mesudarim,” about the tumultuous lives of successful thirty-something tech entrepreneurs, “Loaded” was penned by Jon Brown, whose credits include “Misfits” and “Veep.” The series is also being adapted by Televisa in Mexico and Huace-Croton in China.
Other shows on Keshet International’s slate include the true-crime series “World’s Most Evil Killers,” which debuted on Sky Pick in the U.K. and scored record ratings, the second season of BBC One’s family drama “The A-Word,” as well as “Prisoners of War India” and “The Paper.”
MipTV runs April 3-6.
