Leading independent distributor all3media international has sealed a deal with BBC Four for English/Welsh-language crime drama Hidden (Craith).

HiddenCraith 22Nov2017Hidden (Craith) stars Sian Reese-Williams, Rhodri Meilir, Gwyneth Keyworth and Sion Alun Davies, and shows Reese-Williams as DCI Cadi John who is drawn back to her childhood home by the faltering health of her father and finds herself policing the precinct and people of her youth. Yet when the body of a local woman is found in a remote mountain river, Cadi’s world - and the world of those around her - is changed forever.

Produced by Severn Screen for S4C and BBC Wales, the series was co-created by Severn Screen’s Mark Andrew and Ed Talfan — at the helm of award-winning global hit Y Gwyll/Hinterland — who will also serve as executive producers on the series alongside producer Hannah Thomas.

The deal will see BBC Four acquire the UK-wide broadcast rights to the eight-part series which will screen in 2018. The drama will premiere in Welsh on S4C in January 2018 as Craith, before the bilingual version of Hidden airs first on BBC Wales and then on BBC Four.

“We’re very pleased to welcome BBC Four on board this new Severn Screen series,” commented Caroline Stephenson, SVP EMEA at all3media international. “Hidden (Craith) delivers a truly gripping crime drama, in the Scandi Noir vein, set amidst the breath-taking landscapes of northern Wales. It will be the perfect addition to BBC Four’s roster of acclaimed international drama. Hidden (Craith) has the tone of Y Gwyll/Hinterland which has already been acquired in more than 70 territories, and we’re expecting it to prove equally as popular when it debuts to the global market.”
