Banijay and its Scandinavian outfit Yellow Bird (“Millennium”) have shared with Variety the promo for their anticipated fantasy thriller series “Hidden”, which stars Izabella Scorupco (GoldenEye) and August Wittgenstein (“The Crown”).
“Hidden” is based on Filip Alexanderson’s novel “Förstfödd” and takes place in modern-day Stockholm, where people living on the margins discover they have supernatural forces.
Now in post-production, the eight-part series, which blends the paranormal with hard-hitting realism and psychological drama, was introduced to buyers at Mipcom in October. Scorupco told Variety that the 1970s-set series was a highly personal project and described her character in the show as “the most beautiful and compassionate” she’s ever played.
The series is rooted in Scandinavia’s mythology, and follows a subspecies of humans who have enhanced abilities.
“Hidden” will premiere exclusively on MTG’s Nordic streaming service, Viaplay, followed by a broadcast on TV3 in Sweden. Watch the promo below:
