Movistar+ acquires series from Killing creators

Telefonica-owned Spanish pay TV operator Movistar+ has picked up two new series from the creators of The Killing and Borgen.

Below the Surface: arriving at Movistar+

Below the Surface (8×60’), from Sam Productions, and Ride Upon the Storm (20×60’), a coproduction made by DR Drama, Arte and Sam, are based on ideas by screenwriters Soren Sveistrup (The Killing) and Adam Price (Borgen) respectively.

Below the Surface, originally commissioned by Discovery Networks-owned Kanal 5 in Denmark, is a police thriller set underground as 15 hostages are taken on a subway train. The story is set over the course of eight days, one per episode.

Price’s Ride Upon the Storm, originally created for DR1 in Denmark and Arte in France, stars Lars Mikkelsen (The Killing, House of Cards) and follows a family of priests that trace their roots back more than 250 years.

Movistar+ announced a long-term commitment to grow its drama offering at Mipcom last month.

Below the Surface will air on Movistar Series Xtra on Monday December 11. Ride Upon the Storm will premiere on Movistar Series on Wednesday December 13 at 21.30.
