Man in Room 301, which will premiere in December, is a six-part series written by Kate Ashfield (Shaun of the Dead, Line of Duty) and directed by Mikko Kuparinen (2 Nights Till Morning).

It tells the story of a family whose lives change irrevocably one fateful night. Years later, the secrets of that night start to unravel during a family holiday, forcing them to ask themselves how far they are willing to go for their loved ones.

The all-Finnish cast includes Antti Virmavirta (The Other Side of Hope) and Kaija Pakarinen (Love & Fury). Filming is taking place in Finland and Greece, with Athens-based Inkas Film & TV Productions acting as coproducer for the parts of the series filmed in Greece.

APC Studios is in charge of international distribution, with financing coming from Business Finland’s Audiovisual Production Incentive.

“In coproducing with Warner Bros Finland and Elisa Viihde, we were lucky enough to tap into the Finnish talent pool of writers, directors and producers to create a show that was both unique to the territory but also had a British storytelling sensibility,” said executive producer Eleanor Greene from Wall to Wall.
