Atlantic Crossing sets sail for PBS

Kyle MacLachlan plays FDR in Atlantic Crossing

MIPCOM: PBS in the US has acquired Cinenord and Beta Film’s Second World War drama series Atlantic Crossing for its Masterpiece strand.

The show had its world premiere at Canneseries in France this week and will begin airing later this month on Norway’s NRK.

The 8×60’ series is based on the true story of Norwegian Crown Princess Märtha and her attempt to persuade US president Franklin D Roosevelt to help save Norway and Europe from the Nazis.

The princess is played by Sofia Helin (The Bridge) and Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks) plays FDR.

Beta Film handles worldwide sales of Atlantic Crossing, excluding the US, for which the rights were acquired by PBS Distribution.
