London and Mainz, February 12th, 2018
WALTER PRESENTS the global TV drama service has secured the hotly anticipated, smash hit Belgian series TABULA RASA from ZDF Enterprises for the UK.
TABULA RASA is a 9 x 50’ psychological thriller starring Veerle Baetens who plays Mie, a young woman with amnesia. Locked up in a secure psychiatric hospital Mie was the last person to be seen with a man who has since disappeared. As both a witness and prime suspect, she holds the key to solving this mysterious case. To prove her innocence, Mie must confront and recover her recent past but the more she remembers, the more she starts to mistrust not only the people around her, but also… herself.
Produced by Caviar Films TABULA RASA will premiere on Channel 4 in the summer with the whole of the series immediately available to view on All 4. Co-written by Malin-Sarah Gozin, Veerle Baetens and Christophe Dirickx this is the second Caviar production to be picked up by Walter Presents.
Co-founder and curator Walter Iuzzolino says:
“Malin-Sarah has a gift for creating unique dramas which never cease to surprise and delight. This is a superb, taut, psychological thriller that scares and intrigues in equal measure. Tabula Rasa is sure to make a lasting impression with UK audiences.”
Fred Burcksen, President and CEO of ZDF Enterprises says:
“I’m delighted to have sealed our 9th deal with Walter Presents, who continue to champion and raise the profile of foreign language dramas globally. Tabula Rasa is a ZDFneo and ZDF Enterprises co-production and we’re very proud to have it as a jewel in our catalogue.”
