Walter Presents picks up Russian true crime drama Murderous Fever from NTV for multiple territories.

NTV’s Murderous Fever will premiere on Walter Presents in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand from 2022. The series is one of Russia’s first true-case investigative dramas.

‘Murderous Fever‘ digs into one of the most brutal serial killer cases in Soviet history and the cover-up conspiracy that surrounded it. Based on a true story, this 10-part criminal drama goes behind the scenes on one of the most complex and shocking murder investigations in the USSR and shines a light on what it’s like to be a homicide detective risking everything in pursuit of justice.

“‘Murderous Fever‘ is our strongest new TV show. The project has rightfully caught the interest of one of the leading British companies with a distribution network covering Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand. What makes this transaction especially valuable is the fact that our show was chosen personally by Walter Iuzzolino, the founder of Walter Presents, who always selects projects for the platform himself,” says Timur Weinstein, General Producer at NTV.

Walter Iuzzolino, co-founder and curator of Walter Presents, added “I am delighted to be partnering with NTV, a company known for its prestigious programming, to bring this glossy, high-class Russian thriller to the Walter Presents platform. The addictive storytelling will resonate with audiences globally whilst offering an incredible insight into untold Russian history.”
