Beta Film Boards Refugee and Drug Trafficking Thriller Series ‘Amnesia’September 20, 2019
Beta Film, whose Mipcom lineup includes “Agent Hamilton,” “Babylon Berlin” and “Medici: The Magnificent,” has partnered with Croatian production company Drugi Plan on “Amnesia,” a six-hour thriller series about refugee and drug trafficking in the Southeast of Europe.
The move adds to Munich, Germany-based Beta Film’s portfolio of Central and East European series, a growing part of its business. Beta Film has partnered with HBO Europe on Agnieszka Holland’s “Burning Bush” and “Wasteland,” with Robert Dornhelm on “Maria Theresa,” and most recently with Dariusz Jablonski on “The Pleasure Principle,” which is also on its Mipcom slate.
“Amnesia” will be shot in March in the spectacular surroundings of Plitvice Lakes National Park (pictured), the actual route used by many refugees who are fleeing Syria and other war-torn regions.
