GOT actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldaus Documentary Series Picked Up by Streaming Service Topic
First Look Media’s streaming service ‘Topic’ has acquired the North American rights to Through Greenland, a documentary show which stars popular ‘Game of Thrones’ actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. In addition, they also have the exclusive streaming rights to the Danish drama When the Dust Settles.
When the Dust Settles was originally broadcast on Denmark’s public broadcast service DR in February 2020 and is centred around eight characters who deal with the aftermath of a shocking terrorist attack in Copenhagen. It was co-created by Dorte Høgh and Ida Maria Rydén, with Milad Alami (Follow The Money III) sharing the directing duties with Jeanette Nordahl (Wildland) and Iram Haq (What Will People Say). The series is produced by Stinna Lassen for DR Drama.
In a statement, DR Sales’ Executive Sales & Acquisitions Manager Freja Johanne Nørgaard Sørensen said, “we are delighted that Topic has picked up When the Dust Settles. The series is an ambitious project that speaks to something in all of us and I hope that the North American audience will embrace our series wholeheartedly.” The show will stream on Topic on July 16.
Meanwhile, Through Greeland will be available on Topic from August 27 onwards.
