Norwegian Crime Thriller to be adapted by Fox Television

Norwegian broadcaster NRK has made its first U.S. sale of a scripted format with thriller series Mammon. 20th Century Fox Television has acquired the adaptation rights to the Norwegian crime series.

The 6-episode series, which premieres in January in Norway, centers on an investigative journalist (played by Jon Ă˜igarden), who uncovers a massive financial fraud conspiracy and is shocked to discover his own brother may be involved. When his brother commits suicide, he begins a search for the truth. The tense six-part thriller pits brother against brother in the worlds of politics, media and finance. It hails from sibling producer/writer team Vegard and Gjermund Stenberg Eriksen.

The first episode hasn't even aired,  but NRK has ordered a second season of the series.
