Eccho comes calling with new slate

20-10-2020

Continued production in Sweden means Eccho Rights is able to come to market with new ‘blue-sky’ titles for buyers seeking lighter content, as well as drawing on its Turkish and South Korean heritage, for its playlist on C21 Digital Screenings this week.

 

Swedish crime writer Camilla Läckberg has sold more than 22 million novels in 60 countries and been dubbed ‘the rock star of Nordic noir,’ so her television debut comes with high expectations.

 

But Hammarvik, the story of a police inspector who returns to her idyllic coastal home town of the same name for her mother’s funeral, doesn’t fall strictly into this genre, according to Nicola Söderlund, managing partner of distributor Eccho Rights.

 

“It’s a blue-sky crime relationship drama,” he says of the show, a Viaplay Original from Nordisk Film & TV, which debuted in October and is heading Eccho’s C21 Digital Screenings playlist.

 

“There is an appetite for lighter fare,” says the exec. Not only is ‘noir’ now a style that’s been replicated elsewhere – in territories like Spain, Italy and Russia – but amid the present pandemic, he perceives a degree of fatigue with it.
