Steve Shill's psycho-thriller series The Box now in production
- NENT Group’s new series, co-produced by German outfit Night Train Media, will star Alexander Karim, Peter Stormare and Anna Friel in the leading roles
A new NENT Group production is now in the making – namely, the seven-part psycho-thriller series The Box, penned and created by Adi Hasak (the TV series Shades of Blue and Eyewitness). The project, helmed by seasoned British director Steve Shill (the TV series Dexter, The Wire and Law & Order), has just begun filming in one indoor location in Stockholm, where a US police station has been purposely recreated.
The story follows Sharon Pici, a Kansas City police officer (played by award-winning actress Anna Friel), who gets obsessed with an investigation and ends up experiencing a supernatural nightmare. Alexander Karim (the TV series The Lawyer) will play her partner, Loveall, whilst veteran thesp Peter Stormare will portray Jed, the police station manager.
The Box is being co-produced by NENT Group and Germany's Night Train Media. It will premiere on NENT Group’s streaming platform Viaplay in the Nordics and in the Baltics later this year. Night Train Media is also in charge of its international distribution rights.
