SBS acquires Scandi-drama, Fallen.

SBS has acquired Australian rights to Fallen a crime drama reuniting The Bridge showrunner Camilla Ahlgren and star Sofia Helin.

Helin plays Iris Broman, the new head of Kalla Fall, a group solving cold cases in Malmö, Sweden. Iris has just left Stockholm following a tragedy and moved to the small southern town of Ystad, where she lives in her half-sister Kattis’ (Hedda Stiernstedt) house by the sea. But when Iris arrives in Skåne, a cold case becomes topical again and everything is turned upside down, intertwining the lives of several characters.

Created and written by Ahlgren along with Martin Asphaug and Alex Haridi, the six-part series is produced by Banijay-owned Filmlance. It is co-produced by TV4, Film i Skåne, in collaboration with ZDF.

“It’s affirming to see the series find its audience, and I’m proud that people around the world will now be able to watch it too,” Ahlgren continued.

A premiere is yet to be announced.
