Finland to get its own high-end fantasy thriller series

The Finnish production company Mogul Movies has teamed up with the Paris-based company to develop Isolated, a Finnish high-concept fantasy thriller series.

The series will be set in a peaceful and remote island, which is soon plagued by a strange phenomenon which cuts the power and prevents the inhabitants from leaving. Meanwhile, a survivor of the MS Estonia, a passenger ship that sank more than 24 years ago, washes ashore. Faced with those extraordinary events, the islanders quickly descend into paranoia and start fighting to gain control of local resources.

Isolated is based on an original idea by Markos Annala, Lassi Vierikko and Petja Lähde, who co-wrote “Fingerpori,” a comedy about a fictional town and its uncommon people.

No release date for Isolated has been released.

About Premium Content is currently selling the Finnish crime series Deadwind (pictured).
