Amazon boosts Prime Video Nordics original reality and comedy slate

Parneviks All In!

Amazon’s SVOD service Prime Video has ordered 12 new and returning unscripted reality and entertainment series for the Nordics to debut this autumn.

New titles include docu-reality series Girls Of Oslo, a behind-the-scenes look at the daily lives of Norway’s top four influencers – Sophie Elise, Isabel Raad, Nora Haukland, and Anniken Englund Jørgensen. Produced by Salto Film, the series will launch this autumn in Norway.

Bingo & Julia will meanwhile explore the glamorous lives of Bingo Rimér and Julia Franzén’s, with the couple inviting the audience to follow them in Stockholm, Marbella, and Jämtland as Julia adapts to life as a stepmother. The series is produced by Nexiko for viewers in Sweden.

Also new to Prime Video in Sweden is the ITV-produced series Parneviks All In!, which will follow Mia and Jesper Parnevik as they take on big dreams, challenge their fears, and push the boundaries to ultimately tick adventures off their bucket list.

The comedy franchise LOL: Last One Laughing is also expanding to Denmark and Norway, while the Swedish version is receiving a second season.

The entertainment formats pits 10 of the funniest entertainers against one another to see who will ultimately win by keeping a straight face, while simultaneously trying to make their opponents laugh—and lose. All Nordic versions are filmed and produced in Sweden by Jarowskij (Sweden), Metronome (Denmark), and Nordisk Banijay (Norway).

Returning titles

Other returning shows include Good Luck Guys, the adventure format originally created by Banijay Productions in France. The show is back with different local versions in Denmark, Norway and Sweden and is produced by Mastiff Denmark, Mastiff Norway and Meter Sweden, respectively.

A second season of Pranked is also headed to Sweden, Norway, and Denmark, with Danny Saucedo in Sweden and Nicklas Bendtner in Denmark returning as hosts, while brand-new presenters Aleksander Saeterstøl and Martine Lunde join the show in Norway.

Pranked season two is produced by ITV in Sweden and Norway and United Productions in Denmark.

“These familiar faces, places, and stories give further breadth and depth to our growing local slate and alongside our global original content further builds out Prime Video as a premium entertainment destination that our customers love,” said Martin Backlund, managing director, Prime Video, Nordics.
