NEWS & EVENTS
Petter S. Rosenlund (The Heavy Water War) is head-writer for the international spy thriller series Hamilton which is based on Swedish author Jan Guillou’s books.
It has now been announced that Norwegian Jakob Oftebro will star as Swedish intelligence officer Carl Hamilton, who trained with the U.S. Navy Seals to become part of an illegal black ops cell within the Swedish military.
Swedish broadcaster TV4 and its streaming service CMore have commissioned the first two seasons of the show and it’s their biggest international project so far.
Hamilton will start filming in the second quarter of 2018 in Sweden and other European locations. The series will premiere exclusively on CMore next year, with a later linear airing on TV4 and ZDF in Germany.
This is suspenseful television done compactly.
War, espionage, the atomic bomb, skiing — this Danish-British-Norwegian production about Germany’s plan to build an atomic bomb (using the substance of the title) and the Allied attempts at sabotage has it all. Especially skiing; you cannot commit sabotage in Norway without a heavy dose of skiing. The series is a mix of military procedural (the planning and practicing of various missions) and scientific intrigue (Werner Heisenberg, the German physicist, plays a main role). This is suspenseful television done compactly.
