Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) has added Norwegian young adult drama series Delete Me to its 2020 drama slate.
The original short form series, which explores topics such as cyber-bullying, hacking and exclusion, will premiere on NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service in late 2020.
Told in reverse time order across seven 20-minute episodes, Delete Me follows teenage girls Marion and Marit through the infamous Norwegian graduation ritual ‘Russetiden’. As they come of age in a culture where appearance and status are valued more than anything else, they discover that a seemingly insignificant act of jealousy can be picked up online and change lives forever.
Delete Me stars Amalia Holm (The Girl in the Spider’s Web) and Thea Sofie Loch Næss (Wisting), as well as Swedish actress Happy Jankell (The Ambassador). The series is written and directed by Marie Kristiansen (Young and Promising) and is produced by Pål Kruke Kristiansen (Lilyhammer) for Einar Film. Filming started this week in Oslo.
Filippa Wallestam, NENT group chief content officer, said: “Delete Me is based on in-depth conversations with young people, and combines a new generation of Norwegian talents with distinctive storytelling and captivating visuals to show just how difficult growing up in 2020 can be.
NENT Group is set to premiere a minimum of 30 original productions in 2020.
