PRAGUE: Eccho Rights has announced it picked up Czech crime series Murder Squad / Mordparta from commercial TV broadcaster Prima.
The crime drama, which follows the lives of a private and professional team of investigators in Prague, had a 17% share for Prima in its first season, which premiered 28 August 2016. The second season has just finished its run in the Czech Republic.
“We are very excited to welcome this series to our catalogue,” says Barbora Susterova, Head of Eccho Rights’ Madrid Office, who brought the deal to the international distributor. “Demand for quality crime drama remains high, but it is the human elements of this series that make it an even more interesting proposition for buyers looking for something a little different.”
The 55-minute mini-series, directed by Peter Bebjak and Robert Sveda, stars a cast of notable actors, including Jiří Bartoška, Slovenian actress Natasa Burger and Vojtech Kotek.
