Walter Present is heading back to the Netherlands this winter for The Blood Pact.
From the creator of the smash-hit series The Adulterer, the series (Klem in its home country) follows Hugo, who, two years after becoming a widow, is struggling to balance his work life and being a single dad to two daughters. Little does he know his life is about to get a whole lot more complicated when his 8-year-old befriends the daughter of a prolific ex-criminal.
Work-obsessed Hugo is applying for the Vice Presidency of the Dutch revenue and customs service. Meanwhile, Marius has just been released from an 8-year prison sentence for murder and is elated to be reunited with his wife and daughter in the outside world. However, not all is plain sailing; Marius still owes money to dangerous people, and the police are closely following his every move. When Hugo finds out that his daughter Suus is best friend with Marius’ daughter Chrissie, he worries for her safety. But when the two fathers are forced together by a freak accident, they too become friends, and Hugo finds himself drawn deeper into a dangerous web. Ultimately both men must decide how far they are prepared to go to protect their family.
Jacob Derwig won Best Actor in a TV Drama at the Netherlands Film Festival for his role as Marius. Viewers may recognise Barry Atsma, playing Hugo, from Walter Presents’ Bad Banks.
The seruies will premiere its first episode at 11.30pm on Channel 4 on 15th December, with the full 10-part box set then available on Walter Presents via All 4 following its broadcast.
