Both programmes are scripted formats licensed to HBO Europe by DRG.

And DRG has secured a deal for all HBO Europe networks to air those finished programmes in their region.

DRG has also optioned rights of additional scripted formats to HBO Europe – Easy Living in Hungary, and Eyewitness in Romania.

Mammon, produced by Norway’s NRK, follows the story of a journalist who is drawn into a world of lies after he uncovers financial fraud involving some of Norway’s most influential figures.

Small Time Gangster, a comedy-drama originally produced by Boilermaker-Burberry Entertainment for Australia’s SBS, is the story of one man’s secret double life.

Noir thriller Eyewitness, also from NRK, follows two teenage boys who play witness to a gangland murder, whilst Easy Living, from Moskito Television for Finland’s MTV3, is a crime-drama about the extraordinary secret life of a father and ruthless business entrepreneur.
