Netflix subcribers will be able to get their latest fix of international drama with the launch Thursday of “Tabula Rasa,” a psychological thriller about a woman with memory loss who finds herself at the center of a missing persons case.
The streamer has the Belgian nine-part series in the U.S. and around the world, with the exception of Germany, France, and the U.K., where it has a second window after Channel 4-backed streaming service Walter Presents.
The series follows Mie D’Haeze, played by Veerle Baetens, who is detained in a psychiatric institution. She is visited by a police inspector investigating a missing persons case, forcing D’Haeze to try to overcome her memory loss and unlock secrets from her past.
It was a hit on VRT’s Een channel in 2017, scoring a 44% market share and ranking as the top drama of the year. It is now playing on German pubcaster ZDF’s ZDFneo channel.
The series had a festival and market run, appearing at Series Mania last year and launching at Mipcom. It was created by Baetens and Malin-Sarah Gozin, and directed by Jonas Govaerts and Kaat Beels.
