John Connor [Cathode Ray Mission 03.07.17] Sweden horror thriller mystery

AMC Networks-backed premium streaming service Shudder announced today that it has acquired exclusive North American rights for Season 1 and the upcoming Season 2 of the acclaimed international thriller series JORDSKOTT from ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE).

JORDSKOTT Season 1 will launch with the first two episodes available on April 6th with two new episodes premiering each week on Shudder.

Season 1 of the critically acclaimed Scandi-noir thriller revolves around the seven-year disappearance of police investigator Eva Thörnblad’s daughter, Josefine. Still attempting to deal with the grief of her loss, Eva is haunted by the belief that Josefine did not drown during their fateful trip to the Silverhojd Lake, but was abducted. When a young boy goes missing in the same area, this motivates Eva to delve deeper into the mystery of the forest and confront her darkest fears.

Starring leading Swedish talent Moa Gammel as detective Eva Thörnblad, as well as Göran Ragnersta, Richard Forsgren and Lia Boysen, the compulsively watchable Swedish thriller has gained much acclaimed praise to date. Collider praised it as “an eco-fantasy with a healthy heaping of horror” and that the series “will haunt you long after you’ve left it behind.” The Radio Times cited its “nicely oppressive atmosphere and an enveloping creepiness.”

JORDSKOTT is the latest in a series of high-profile exclusive acquisitions for Shudder, following recent acquisitions of thriller miniseries BEYOND THE WALLS as well as well-received premiere films such as Alice Lowe’s witty slasher PREVENGE, J-Horror franchise fusion SADAKO VS KAYAKO, indie horror WE GO ON and paranormal spine-chiller DEAREST SISTER.
