Walter Presents is also bringing back successful Spanish prison drama Locked Up.

The first series proved popular last year, with Walter Iuzzolino of Walter Presents telling the RTS that the day after the show launched online, “something like 11 000 people had already burned through the entire [series]”

The show, he said, “is “really different. It’s really Hispanic. It’s very technicolour. It’s fun. It’s very sweaty. It is Spanish exuberance!”

Inglorious Basterds star Til Schweiger fronts new Walter Presents series

Starring German megastar and Hollywood actor Til Schweiger (Inglorious Basterds, This Means War), Nick’s Law follows lone wolf detective Nick Tschiller as he takes on the Astan clan, the gang at the heart of Hamburg’s criminal empire.

After moving his family to Hamburg for a fresh start, it doesn’t take long before Tschiller’s (Schweiger) all-guns-blazing approach lands him in hot water with the District Attorney.

French political thriller Spin to make a dramatic return on More4

Speaking at the premiere of the new series, held at the Institute Français in London, Walter Iuzzolino of Walter Presents revealed that Spin will be taking the Friday night slot in the weeks surrounding the French presidential election this year.

The series, he said, was a building block for the entire Walter Presents project. “It was the first show we bought for the UK, and it was the first show we bought for our US launch and so it’s the brick on which we built the whole thing.”

Walter Presents to premiere new drama Case on Channel 4

From director Baldvin Zophoniasson (Trapped), comes hit thriller Case, which tells the story of deep-rooted abuse and corruption within Reykjavik.

On a mission to uncover the truth of what really happened, their paths will cross as their investigations uncover crimes worse than murder.
