Marlowfilm Productions secures funding for development of eight-part drama series We, The Drowned, based on the novel by Carsten Jensen.
Currently in late stages of development, the TV project based on Carsten Jensen’s best-selling novel, will be directed by Danish born Hollywood-based Mikael Salomon, episodic director of Steven Spielberg’s Band of Brothers, and multi-awarded cinematographer (The Abyss). Norway’s experienced writer Jan Trygve Røyneland handles the screen adaptation.
The epic historical TV series will focus on a group of men on the high seas and the women and children who await their return amidst the deepest betrayals and unexpected loves, from the sun-bleached Caribbean to distant Australia, from mystic Shanghai to glittering New York.
Chris Stewart, Commercial Director at Banijay Rights, said: “We’re very pleased to be partnered with MARLOWFILM Productions on this exciting new drama from Mikael Salomon, one of the industry’s most renowned and respected directors. We, The Drowned is the perfect example of a local story with a truly global appeal, focusing on timeless and universal themes of adventure, love, desire, grief and the passage of time, which we know will strike a chord with international audiences.”
Deborah Marlow, Creative Producer at MARLOWFILM Productions added: “We are fortunate to have a wealth of gorgeous material to work with and an immensely dedicated and talented team to nurture it. Having the visual prowess of Salomon, the linguistic eloquence of Trygve, and the support from Banijay Rights is quite the cocktail. We couldn’t be more excited.”
We have been making short films on global menstruation taboos and Period Poverty for 5 years now. It is a moral and ethical issue which adults are responsible for. Whether it be parents, schools and/or politicians, teens need your help so that their education is not impeded by their biology. I'm so happy to see awareness growing in the American media. Way to go PBS. #periodpoverty #menstruation #teenhealthcare ... See MoreSee Less

Last year I made an interview with our Beloved Morten. Being somewhat nauseated by my danish accent I never listened to it before now. Never wanted to. But now when we can no longer hear his laughter and share his joy it's a blessing to have one of our conversations recorded. (It's only fun if you know me and know Morten and understand danish) ...In the sadness that fills us I hope that we all can honour him and his family by being More Like Morten. And this world will be a better place. RIP Buddha man.
Paradigm shifts are a Big Deal in a historical context. Just think of all the things that have been and can be accomplished if big shifts continue to occur in our life time. Here is one that is HUGE and happening now. I am proud that we were on board 5 years ago to make short films on menstrual health and period poverty at a time people grimaced while we pitched it. It was difficult to get anyone to fund it at first but compassionate individuals did which led to foundations which led to NGO's which led to films which won prizes (not Oscars) and were shown to many thousands of people on several continents. That's shifting the norms. That's the power of One. That's the butterfly effect in process. Thanks to Susan Anderson Mosseri-Marlio for getting the ball rolling. Thanks to Sharron M Champion for welcoming us to South Carolina. Thanks to Nancy Durrell McKenna at SAFE HANDS FOR MOTHERS for partnering with us.
