Fortitude lands global sales

Fortitude, the forthcoming Sky Atlantic drama, will air in France, Scandinavia and Israel following sales by distributor Sky Vision.

Canal+ in France, TV2 in Denmark, SVT in Sweden, YLE in Finland, Canada’s Super Channel, NRK in Norway, RUV in Iceland, DBS in Israel, and OTE in Greece have all acquired rights to the series.

Set in one of the safest towns in the world, Fortitude tells the story of a community where there has never been a violent crime – until now.

The cast includes Stanley Tucci, Sofie Gråbøl, Christopher Ecclestone and Michael Gambon.

It is produced by Fifty Fathoms, and coproduced by US network partner Pivot TV.

The show will debut in early 2015.
