Thriller Films has sealed a multi-production deal with Cairo-based Aroma Studios and United Brothers Partnership who have an eye on cracking the American film and TV market. First up in the three-company pact is First List, an hourlong eight-episode drama series toplined by Aussie Martin Dingle Wall.
Under the co-production deal, Thriller International will sell the finished project to a network and/or major digital platform. Shooting is already underway in Los Angeles.
The series, directed by Majdi Smiri, centers on Will Scott (Wall), one of the FBI’s leading crypto-analysts who is hired to crack a heavily coded document discovered by the FBI. He soon discovers it’s a hit list, putting him in the cross-hairs of the bad guys who want it back. A double-cross makes Will one of the FBI’s most wanted as he struggles to save those on the hit list.
