Psychological thriller series available on Netflix globally as of today
Mainz, March 15th, 2018
ZDF Enterprises announced today that as of today the 9 x 50’ thriller series TABULA RASA has launched globally on Netflix.
TABULA RASA is a Caviar production, co-produced by Belgian broadcaster Eén and Germany’s ZDFneo, and created with the support of the Flanders Audiovisual Fund and with the help of the Belgian Tax Shelter incentive by Minister Van Overtveldt.
With the exception of Germany, the United Kingdom and France, where Netflix has a second window for the series, millions of Netflix subscribers are now able to discover the psychological thriller. TABULA RASA was created and written by Malin-Sarah Gozin and Veerle Baetens, with Christophe Dierickx rounding out the team of writers. The series was directed by Jonas Govaerts and Kaat Beels. The leading roles are played by Veerle Baetens, Stijn Van Opstal, Cécile Enthoven, Natali Broods, Lynn Van Royen, Tom Audenaert, Peter Van den Begin, Gène Bervoets, Jeroen Perceval, Hilde Van Mieghem, Viviane De Muynck and François Beukelaers.
TABULA RASA is a compelling, psychological thriller about a young woman with memory loss who is the only key in a mysterious missing person's case. Mie D'Haeze (Veerle Baetens) is detained in a psychiatric institution. She is visited by police inspector Wolkers who is trying to solve a disturbing case of a missing person - Thomas De Geest. In order to find him, Mie has to find her way through the dark maze of her recent past… it all began when she moved to a strange house in the woods a few months earlier. The more Mie remembers, the more she begins to distrust everyone around her… but especially herself. Are her new memories real or is it her imagination trying to fill the gaps in her memory?
The series was one of the highlights on Belgian channel VRT last autumn. With a market share of 44%, and no less than an average of 1,250,000 viewers, the series was the fiction programme with the highest number of viewers last year. TABULA RASA has already completed an impressive international tour, being selected to be shown at international festivals such as Series Mania (both in Paris and Melbourne), MIPCOM (Cannes) and the leading genre festival Fantastic Fest in Austin (Texas, USA). The series is currently airing in Germany on ZDFneo. ZDF Enterprises is in charge of the worldwide distribution of the series.
