Viewpark & Darilis Announce Screen Adaptation of Siger’s Greece-Set Mysteries

NEW YORK – Viewpark and veteran television producer Yanna Darilis on February 4 announced a screen adaptation of Jeffrey Siger’s bestselling Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis mystery series.

Viewpark and Darilis will co-produce the adaptation of writer Siger’s ten-book series. Production will begin later this year, filming on location in Greece.

The season opener, Murder in Mykonos, is a #1 best-selling English-language book in Greece and due to its immense popularity, Sourcebooks/Poisoned Pen Press, the books’ publisher, is reissuing the novel this month.

Combining the popularity of shows such as Death in Paradise and The Durrells In Corfu, this contemporary crime drama series will take viewers to exotic locations all over Greece, from Mykonos to Santorini, from Delphi to Athens, as Chief Inspector Kaldis exposes the seedy underbelly of the white-washed Greek Isles. Experienced, irreverent with a passion for drama, Kaldis is at the center of hard-hitting cases, which run head strong through a mix of contemporary international politics, as well as Greece’s ancient past.

Viewpark’s CEO, Krysanne Katsoolis, said, “Viewpark is excited to bring the Chief Inspector Kaldis series to the screen. Jeffrey Siger’s police thrillers are first-rate page turners set against the backdrop of some of the most scenic places in the world. His characters are rich and entertaining and the thoroughly researched procedural dramas are the perfect source material for multi-series adaptation.”

Yanna Darilis said, “With the worldwide popularity of who-dunnit crime thrillers, I am excited to bring the Chief Inspector Kaldis series to the screen by teaming up with Viewpark to develop the series.”

Jeffrey Siger said, “Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis has found the perfect home in Viewpark and Yanna Darilis. I couldn’t be happier for him and his inimitable cast of characters.”
