Intense spiral

Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, the Netherlands. All over Europe, famous art works simultaneously disappear. . Interpol is at the end of their wits. Coincidence? Hardly, more like a conspiracy. One man is behind it : the Machiavellian Arturo who has an egg to peel with society. In every country, he can count on the help of clever accomplices. However, several protagonists have a hidden agenda, and the whole affair quickly becomes more than “just” an international heist. Let the hunt begin!

The screenplay for an attractive film? Not quite. The Spiral is a series made for television, capable of leaving a lasting impression on screens across Europe. Just like the story, the production was spread over six different countries and all episodes will be broadcast at the same time. There is a reason for this synchronicity: viewers who want to will be able to get involved with the investigation via the Net at first and then in real life later. This interaction will have an impact until the last episode has been aired.
Incredible? It almost is. Yet, we are not being delusional. Even better, French-speaking viewers will be able to join in as well, as we have just been informed that Arte joins the group of broadcasters for this amazing work. We can only hope the RBTF will follow suit.

The series is scheduled to be broadcast in September, keeping us in suspense for five weeks. The Spiral, co-financed by Wallimage, has just started its career on the internet via a its teaser-trailer . American-style editing, metallic images, charismatic characters ... the recipe for an explosive adventure seems to be there!

Arturo, the Machiavellian brain behind the operation, is played by Johan Leysen (Le Goût de l’Empereur, Elève Libre, Sœur Sourire), while his team is composed of international players. There is the Swedish Tuva Novotny (from the series Dag), the Belgian Thomas Rykewaert (Bo, Weekend aan Zee), who replaced a previously announced Matthias Schoenaerts, held up by other obligations, the Norvegian Viktoria Winge (singer of the group Discorockers), the Finnish Elmer Back, the Danish Paw Henriksen (Revenge) and the Dutch Tim Murck (who starred in a number of Dutch series).
They will face among others Donald Högberg, Thure Lindhardt, Tommi Korpela and the Belgians Lien Van de Kelder (who starred in the series Thuis and Zone Stad) and Johan Van Assche (Het Goddelijke Monster, Dossier K). This clash promises to be quite something.

This project, of unseen ambition, was started by Caviar Films, who trusted a young director, Hans Herbots with it. He worked for several television series before making the move to the big screen with Bo. Next year, he will oversee the Flemish blockbuster for 2014: De Behandeling , adapted from a Mo Hayder novel, starring Matthias Schoenaerts and also co-financed by Wallimage/Bruxellimage.
The screenplay for this extraordinary international thriller was written by the much acclaimed Carl Joos (Dossier K, De Zaak Alzheimer,...), who worked together with Dutch writer Paul Jan Nelissen (Oorlogswinter, De Bende van Oss).
A last Belgian touch : the music has been written and interpreted by Daan.

At the moment, we are eagerly awaiting the website , which will become the meeting point for everyone involved, as it will allow them to participate in the investigation. The project is ambitious, and innovating in many aspects. As it was co-financed by the CrossMedia line of Wallimage, it was mainly developed in Wallonia, more precisely by Wanabe in Waterloo.

Online, we will be able to follow the peregrinations of other investigators and dive straight into the plot. That is exactly where the link will be between fiction and active participation. Both are indeed interconnected. The Scotland Yard officers will directly address the public to find the paintings and join the online platform: the famous Spiral. The experience will be playful, but also social and cultural, because just like the series it will take the internet community on a trip through modern art, and make them discover the works, the artists and museums.

By resolving the complex mysteries and teaming up with other participants, every person will progress into the Spiral bit by bit and stay in contact with fictional characters. Everywhere on the net, but also in the media, the museums and even on the streets, we will be able to find traces, clues and stories which will advance us towards the resolution of the enigma.
Without giving too much away, we can simply say that the end result will be stunning, drawing those who participated even more in.
A Facebook page has already been created to spread the virus. We strongly encourage you to join in order not to miss a second of this groundbreaking adventure!
