Topic shops at Eccho Rights

Swedish drama Honour

Topic, the soon-to-launch streaming service from US-based First Look Media, has continued its content trolley dash around global distributors with a deal for a trio of series from Scandi sales house Eccho Rights.

Swedish drama Honour, which was recently renewed for a second season by Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT)’s streaming platform Viaplay, has been picked up.

It follows four talented female lawyers fighting for justice for those who need it most: women who are weak, abused and ignored by the rest of society. The series is produced by Stockholm-based production company Bigster (co-headed by Rapaport).

Swedish thriller Conspiracy of Silence, produced by Brain Academy, is also part of the deal. Directed by Charlotte Brändström, known around the world for her work on acclaimed series such as Outlander, the series explores the murky world of the international arms trade. The series premiered on Viaplay in September 2018.

Finally, Invisible Heroes follows the exploits of Finnish diplomat Tapani Brotherus who, working in secret, helped secure asylum in Europe for more than 2,000 Chilean citizens whose lives were under threat following General Pinochet’s military coup in 1973. The series was commissioned in a unique collaboration between Finnish broadcaster YLE and Chilevisión

Topic, which launches in the US and Canada on November 21, has already picked up content from Fremantle, ABC Commercial and StudioCanal among others.
