Feb 10 2021

The German arm of The Walt Disney Company has picked up Spanish and Russian scripted series for pay TV channel Fox in German-speaking territories.

Spanish series Alive & Kicking (7×30') and Russian drama Dead Mountain: The Dyatlov Pass Incident have been acquired from German distributor Beta Film.

Alive & Kicking centres on four young adults who escape from a psychiatric hospital. The show is produced by Dynamo Audiovisual for streamer Movistar+, where it debuted at the end of last month.

Writer Albert Espinosa has confirmed that season two of the show has been written and that shooting will begin as soon as the green light is given. Fox will show season one in German territories from April 27.

Dead Mountain: The Dyatlov Pass Incident is made by Moscow prodco 1-2-3 Productions for Russian streaming platform Premier One. The drama has also been picked up by SVoD service Cirkus for Nordic territories, where it will debut at the same time as in Germany later in the year. 1-2-3's Evgeniy Nikishov and Valeriy Fedorovich serve as directors, producers and showrunners on the series.
