AXN CE produces first Polish series

Sony Pictures Television’s AXN Central Europe has begun production of its first Polish local content.

The channel is to produce a three-part mini-series based on Swedish crime production Morden I Sandhamm, directed by Greg Zgliński and produced by Opus Films.

The series will premiere on AXN Poland in the autumn.

“Our goal is to produce something different, telling an international crime story through a unique Polish lens,” said John Rossiter, SPT Networks CE general manager.

“The crime genre is extremely popular in Poland and we think the time is right for AXN to start producing high-quality, original local content. Crime is fascinating, and when you look at the underlying motivations and mysteries behind this miniseries it makes for interesting story telling. Things are not always what they seem.”
