‘Ride Upon The Storm’ is bought by TV stations around the world

From Variety:

CANNES — Studiocanal, Europe’s biggest TV-film production-distribution-sales company, owned by Vivendi’s Canal Plus Group, has closed international sales on Danish family relationship drama “Ride Upon the Storm,” a flagship title in Studiocanal’s drive into high-end European drama series.

Adam Price’s follow-up to “Borgen,” “Ride Upon the Storm,” starring Lars Mikkelsen (“House of Cards”), has been acquired by a broad gamut of TV operators from South African pay TV network M-Net Africa, to public broadcasters such as TVNZ for New Zealand and RTE Eire, as well as SBS Australia, which has a strong line in foreign-language series.

Further buyers include Lumière Benelux, RTVS Slovakia, NC+ in Poland; and LRT Lithuania. Studiocanal sold the drama to Telefonica’s Movistar + in Spain; upscale European broadcaster Arte has rights to French and German-speaking Europe. Danish pubcaster DR, which lead-produced the drama with Arte France and SAM le Français, aired “Ride Upon the Storm” from September.

A number of important territories are now under discussion especially now that digital rights have been fully cleared, said Beatriz Campos, Studiocanal head of international sales for TV series.
