Sky Vision announces pre-sales for primetime Sky Atlantic series Fortitude
MUMBAI: Sky Vision, the international distribution arm of UK pay TV service provider BSkyB, has pre-sold the Sky Atlantic drama series ‘Fortitude’ to broadcasters, including Canal + in France, TV2 Denmark, SVT in Sweden, YLE in Finland, Canada’s Super Channel, NRK Norway, RUV Iceland, DBS Israel and OTE in Greece.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and PBS Distribution have picked up home entertainment rights.
‘Fortitude’ is an original Sky drama series, produced by Fifty Fathoms for Sky Atlantic. Sky Vision also secured US network, Pivot TV, as its co-production partner.
Starring Stanley Tucci, Sofie Gråbøl, Christopher Ecclestone and Michael Gambon, ‘Fortitude’ is set in the savage Arctic landscape, and known as one of the safest towns on earth. There has never been a violent crime there. Until now. In such a close-knit community a murder touches everyone and the unsettling horror of this crime threatens the future of the town itself. As the cold Arctic darkness gives way to endless summer nights, this apparently idyllic community struggles to make sense of the murderous horror that has been let loose in its heart.
Sky Vision MD Jane Millichip said, “We are thrilled by the response this series has already achieved worldwide. What sets this show apart is its ambition and scale. Driven by Sky Atlantic to deliver the best talent, writers and producers in this area, Fortitude delivers global themes with an international cast across a full twelve episodes. It’s gripping television and Fifty Fathoms has delivered a series that we know international drama buyers love.”
