The show is shopped by LA-based distributor Dynamic Television, which has previously sold it to TV4 in Sweden and TV2 in Norway.

The Sommerdahl Murders is an original copro between Dynamic Television, NDF, Sequoia Global Alliance, German pubcaster ZDF and Danish pubcaster TV2.

The series was created by Lolita Bellstar, who serves as head writer alongside Lars K Andersen. Janni Helleskov, Matthias Walther and Jan Bennemann exec produce the show, which was recently greenlit for a second season.
