CRAZY COW has inked a distribution agreement with a Russian production company, which has acquired the REMAKE rights to “Vanished’ (original title = “Spoorloos Verdwenen”) , the Dutch series about a specialized police team, fully committed in tracking down people who have been reported missing.

Russia bought directly ALL (33) episodes (that is to say Seasons 1, 2 and 3) and will remake it in Moscow. Shooting with Russian actors starts this fall and a big Russian commercial TV station will launch the Russian remake in a few months.

The Russian deal follows previous deals with Belgium and Czech Republic and negociations are still ongoing with several markets. Season 3 of Vanished-Spoorloos Verdwenen launched last in week in prime-time on the Dutch public television.
