Hungary: MTVA bought the Estonian series The Bank

Hungarian broadcaster MTVA has picked up The Bank, a drama series about the rise of an Estonian bank during the turbulent 1990s following the collapse of the Soviet Union, to air on Duna, M2 and M5.

The Bank is an Estonian production by Itamambuca Filmproduction, and was sold by Videoplugger into Hungary.

Zoltán Nevelős, head of acquisitions at MTVA, said: 'Pank has been a great discovery for us, one of the most inventive, thematically and stylistically most exciting series this year, and one for which we thought it is worth taking the risk for all its unusual qualities'.

The series follows the rise of an Estonian bank during the 90s just after the fall of the Berlin Wall and collapse of the Soviet Union. The drama will air with Hungarian dubbing.
