Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT) is set for its latest original Casper Conquers Norway starring Danish comedian Casper Christensen.
The eight-part mockumentary series will premiere in autumn 2019 across the Nordic region exclusively on NENT’s streaming service Viaplay.
After outraging the Danes with one scandalous joke too many, Christensen (Klovn) has no option but to run away to Norway. The mockumentary series follows his increasingly unhinged adventures in Denmark’s northern neighbour, alongside an eclectic cast of Norwegian actors, sportspeople and celebrities.
The series (Danish title: Casper erobrer Norge; Norwegian title: Unnskyld Norge) is produced by Copenhagen based company The Bunch.
NENT Group is set to premiere 20 original productions every year. Recently announced originals include Honour; Love Me; season two of ALEX; Saga’s Stories; The Inner Circle; Cold Courage; Those Who Kill; Hidden (pictured); Wisting; and Straight Forward.
Titles that have already successfully appeared on the service include The Truth Will Out; Four Hands Menu; Pros and Cons; Conspiracy of Silence; Couple Trouble; Rig 45; The Lawyer; Stella Blómkvist; Couple Thinkers; Occupied; Hassel; Peppy Pals; Superswede; Veni Vidi Vici; seasons one and two of Swedish Dicks; seasons one and two of The Great Escape; and seasons one and two of Black Lake.
Jakob Mejlhede Andersen, NENT Group executive VP and head of content: “Conquering Norway is just the start for Casper. The mockumentary is an ideal format for this vibrant talent who blends anarchy, embarrassment and hilarity like nobody else in Denmark (or Norway). ‘Casper Conquers Norway’ is a hugely creative series with the potential to captivate audiences across the Nordic region, and once again showcases NENT Group’s commitment to broadening the appeal of our original productions even further.”
