Get ready to dive into the darkness in Iceland, because the cast of the new CBS Studios and Stampede Ventures’ drama ‘The Darkness’ is heating up! Principal photography is underway in Reykjavík, and the lineup of talent is nothing short of impressive.

Joining the cast are Jack Bannon, known for his role in ‘Pennyworth’, Douglas Henshall from ‘Shetland’ and ‘Who is Erin Carter?’, Björn Hlynur Haraldsson from ‘A Gentleman in Moscow’, Thorsteinn Bachmann from ‘Katla’, Þorvaldur Davíð Kristjánsson from ‘The Minister’, Tora Hallström from ‘Hilma’, Ahd Tamimi from ‘River City’, and Árni Þór Lárusson. And let’s not forget that Lena Olin is leading the pack!

Suzanne Crowley and Gilly Poole are taking charge of casting in the UK, while Tinna Aðalbjörndottir and Andrea Brabin are taking care of business in Reykjavík. With such a talented team on board, it’s no wonder that this show is already generating buzz.

Based on the bestselling thriller series by Ragnar Jónasson, ‘The Darkness’ follows Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdóttir as she investigates a shocking murder case while also dealing with her own personal traumas. Talk about a heavy workload! But hey, that’s the life of a detective, right?

This series marks the first collaboration under the international first-look deal between CBS Studios and Stampede Ventures. They are working together to bring unique and compelling content to the international market. It’s all about thinking outside the box and delivering top-notch entertainment to audiences worldwide.

In addition to CBS Studios, Iceland’s Truenorth is also in on the action, having previously worked on Netflix’s ‘The Valhalla Murders’ and Danish feature ‘Margrete the First’. And let’s not forget about Paramount Global Content Distribution, which will be handling distribution outside of Iceland. It’s a real international affair!

The writing talent behind ‘The Darkness’ is none other than Sam Shore, who was announced as the writer last October. And as if that wasn’t enough, the director is none other than Oscar nominee Lasse Hallström. With a team like this, it’s no wonder that this show is shaping up to be something special.

Executive producers Greg Silverman and John-Paul Sarni are representing Stampede Ventures, while writer Ragnar Jónasson is also on board as an executive producer. It’s clear that this show has some serious heavy hitters backing it, and we can’t wait to see the end result.

For CBS Studios, ‘The Darkness’ is just the latest addition to their impressive lineup of international dramas. They’ve got a whole slew of other titles in the works, including ‘Colin From Accounts’, ‘Munich Games’, ‘NCIS: Sydney’, ‘King & Conqueror’, and ‘The Gold Diggers’. It’s safe to say that CBS Studios is dominating the global drama scene.

So get ready to embrace the darkness, because this show is shaping up to be an international sensation. With a talented cast, a compelling storyline, and a powerhouse production team, ‘The Darkness’ is primed to take the world by storm. Stay tuned for more updates as this exciting project continues to unfold!
