Walter Presents has acquired Norwegian drama The River (Elven) for the US, UK and Australia.
Based on real events, The River follows an outsider battling against local residents in a close-knit, who appear determined to keep the truth about their past and to obstruct investigations into a dead boy and a murdered girl.
Walter Iuzzolino of Walter Presents said of the acquisition:
“[The River is] an outstanding new Nordic series – dark, elegant, and utterly compelling and its setting on the border between Norway and Russia brings a powerful and unusual narrative edge to the story”.
“This is an A-list piece, which takes the Scandi genre to a new height.”
