LONDON — U.K. production company Nevision has partnered with Ole Sondberg, a producers on “Wallander” and “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” to co-develop 10-part political thriller “Midnights.”
The show, created by Anna Reeves, is being produced by Danish production company Good Company Films, which is headed by Sondberg and Anni Faurbye Fernandez.
“Midnights,” which will be produced by Stinna Lassen and Vibeke Windelov, with Sondberg and Fernandez executive producing, is set in a present-day world that is both familiar and strange, about Nordic Immortals who discover that they are dying amid the emerging Cold War in the Arctic.
Laurent Boissel’s About Premium Content, which is financially backed by Nevision, will handle international distribution for the series, outside Scandinavia.
Sondberg set up Yellow Bird Films, which produced the Swedish and English versions of the “Wallander” television series, and the Swedish and U.S. versions of “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” based on Stieg Larsson’s novels. Fernandez was previously CEO and executive producer of Yellow Bird and, together with Sondberg, Vibeke Windelov and Stinna Lassen, formed Good Company in autumn 2014.
