A new series from Belgium is headed to Walter Presents in the UK: the hit psychological thriller Tabula Rasa.
Tabula Rasa stars Veerle Baetens (Code 37, Beyond the Walls, The Team, Cordon) as Mie, a young woman with amnesia. While Mie is locked up in a secure psychiatric hospital, she is visited by Detective Inspector Jacques Wolkers (Gene Bervoets, Professor T.), who claims she was the last person seen with Thomas De Geest (Jeroen Perceval, 13 Commandments), a man who has since gone missing.
As Mie is both a witness and the prime suspect in Thomas’ disappearance, she holds the key to solving this mysterious case. She can’t be released from the hospital until Thomas is found, so to find him and prove her innocence, Mie has to reconstruct her lost memories and confront and recover her recent past. But the more Mie remembers, the more she starts to mistrust not only the people around her but also herself.
The question is: Are her new memories real or figments of her imagination in a desperate attempt to fill in the blanks?
Produced by Caviar Films (The Out-Laws), the nine-episode series is co-written by Malin-Sarah Gozin (Connie & Clyde), Veerle Baetens, and Christophe Dirickx (The Misfortunates).
Walter Presents co-founder and curator Walter Iuzzolino said:
“Malin-Sarah has a gift for creating unique dramas which never cease to surprise and delight. This is a superb, taut, psychological thriller that scares and intrigues in equal measure. Tabula Rasa is sure to make a lasting impression with UK audiences.”
