Gomorrah writers join The Kollective

Leonardo Fasoli and Maddalena Ravagli

Amsterdam-based prodco Submarine has secured two writers behind Sky’s Italian crime drama Gomorrah for a new political thriller about fake news, titled The Kollective.

The Kollective is inspired by Submarine’s feature doc Bellingcat – Truth in a Post-Truth World, about investigative journalism website Bellingcat. It tells a fictional tale of a citizen journalism group seeking answers after a member dies in mysterious circumstances.

Gomorrah (Sky Italia/Sky Atlantic) writers Leonardo Fasoli and Maddalena Ravagli will jointly write the eight-part series.

“We love investigating what is happening in the world around us and tackling difficult questions through our work. We feel the battle for truth against fake news exploited in order to direct the public opinion is the battle for freedom in our time, a fight for the millennial generation,” said Fasoli and Ravagli.

“The Kollective explores these urgent issues through the narrative ‘Is the truth dead? And if not, what is the price we are ready to pay in order to keep the truth alive?’”
