The acclaimed thriller Dignity (8 x 52’), distributed internationally by Red Arrow Studios International, has been acquired by Amazon Prime Video for pan-Latin America. From 13 November 2020, the full series will be available on the Latin American SVOD platform, concurrent with the premiere of the series on the co-commissioning broadcaster MEGA in Chile.
Latin American distributor Spiral International secured the deal having acquired the Latin American rights to Dignity from Red Arrow Studios International.
Commissioned by Joyn in Germany and MEGA in Chile, Dignity is produced by Chilean film and TV production house Invercine & Wood and German producer Story House Pictures, in co-production with the Chilean television fund CNTV and MEGA.
The series centres on a mysterious Germanic cult called ‘Colonia Dignidad’, established by a former Nazi soldier in Chile, and the quest by a young federal prosecutor to bring him to justice. Based on real events, the series was shot on location at the cult’s former enclave in southern Chile.
Red Arrow Studios International has also licensed Dignity to territories including Spain, Portugal, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Czech Republic, Poland and Hungary.
