Shot in Finnish, Man in Room 301 weaves between the past and present to tell the story of the Kurtti family, whose lives are irrevocably changed when two-year-old Tommi is killed by a gunshot. Whilst on their family holiday in Greece 12 years later, they come across a man that looks just like the boy’s alleged killer. Gripping, fast-paced and tense, the series keeps the audience on edge until the final reveal.

 

 

Laurent Boissel and Emmanuelle Guilbart, Joint-CEOs and Co-Founders at APC, say “Man in Room 301 is a gripping and fast paced family drama that will thrill audiences worldwide. Securing a roster of such key broadcaster with a wide geographic spread is testament to the universality of Kate Ashfield’s storyline and characters which are proving to have global appeal.”
