LONDON — FremantleMedia Intl., the sales arm of the global production giant, has unveiled its slate for Mipcom, the TV sales market that kicks off on Monday. Among the highlights are dark comedy-drama “Capital” and Swedish crime thriller “Modus.”

Kudos Production’s “Capital,” described by FMI as a “witty, vivid and sharply observant drama about the interconnected lives of a diverse group of Londoners,” is based on the novel by John Lanchester, and has been adapted by Peter Bowker. The cast is led by Toby Jones. Bowker’s credits include “Marvellous,” “Eric & Ernie” and “Occupation,” all of which won BAFTAs. BBC has commissioned the show.

Last week, Miso Film’s “Modus” became Swedish network TV4’s biggest drama launch in over two years when it attracted 1.2 million viewers, a 37% share. The show is written by Peter Thorsboe and Mai Brostrom, adapted from Anne Holt’s novels. It follows psychologist and profiler Inger Johanne Vik, played by Melinda Kinnaman, as she finds herself and her autistic daughter drawn into an investigation surrounding a series of brutal deaths.

FMI’s scripted slate also includes Paul Abbott’s police procedural “No Offence” and spy thriller “Deutschland 83,” which it has sold to Sundance TV in the U.S.

Additions to FMI’s non-scripted catalog include “Simply Nigella,” starring the food writer and TV cook Nigella Lawson, who will join FMI in Cannes to launch the series. FMI, which has sold Jamie Oliver titles to more than 200 territories, is to present the chef’s new show, “Jamie’s Super Food,” to buyers.

FMI has also acquired “Soundbreaking,” an eight-part documentary series that traces the history of music and features exclusive footage.
