Stephen Dillane, Lydia Leonard & James D’Arcy Lead Viaplay/A+E Networks Spy Noir ‘Red Election’
Exclusive: Stephen Dillane (Game Of Thrones), Lydia Leonard (Gentleman Jack), and James D’Arcy (Homeland) will headline Nordic noir spy thriller Red Election, which is set at Scandi streamer Viaplay and is co-produced by A+E Networks International.

Housed at Swedish production outfit Mopar Studios, Deadline first mooted the 10-part series in January. Production has now wrapped following a six-month delay last year, when filming was shut down after just two weeks because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Set against the backdrop of a terrorist plot in London, Red Election centers on Danish secret service agent Katrine Poulson (played by Danish actress Victoria Carmen Sonne) and British spy Beatrice Ogilvy (Leonard), who are pitched together in a desperate race against time.

Caught in a web of lies, murder, and power struggles, they soon realize they can’t trust anybody and that the deadly conspiracy could be part of a far-reaching geopolitical masterplan.
