In detail, The Fighter follows Lea Ferrera, a determined boxer with a chequered past who is willing to do anything to fight for the World Championship title. When an investigator suspects her of cheating, her one dream is on the line, and she must decide whether she is really prepared to risk it all.

Los Angeles-based production and distribution outfit Dynamic Television has recently boarded the series’ worldwide distribution rights. Speaking about the acquisition, managing partners Daniel March and Klaus Zimmermann defined the project as “an original and thrilling story set in a gritty and tough world that audiences haven’t seen”. The show is set to premiere on Swedish pubcaster SVT next year.
