Emmy-winner Anna Friel (Books of Blood) will star in Adi Hasak’s (Shades Of Blue, Eyewitness) upcoming supernatural anthology series The Box.
Plot details are being kept under wraps but we do know that the series will begin as a character-driven psychological thriller but evolve into supernatural horror with Friel playing a Kansas City Police Detective locked in a room she can’t escape.
Hasak says: “I’m thrilled at how our show came together. An American show, a top-notch and dynamic Nordic streamer and studio in NENT, and a remarkably talented British actress in Anna Friel. This is truly the future of global TV.”
Friel added: “I am excited to be working with NENT Group on such a fascinating project. Looking forward to the cameras rolling and going on this journey with Adi.”
Hasak will serve as showrunner and write/co-write all eight, 30-minute episodes. Paula Killen, Josh Azouz, and Clare Siobhan Byrne are co-writers. Production is set to kick off in Stockholm, Sweden in February 2021.
