April 20 2018

The international food documentary series ‘Four Hands Menu’ is the next original production from MTG Studios. Created by star chef Niklas Ekstedt and featuring some of the world’s most talented culinary luminaries, ‘Four Hands Menu’ premieres in autumn 2018 exclusively on Viaplay across the Nordic region.

Each episode of ‘Four Hands Menu’ brings together two globally renowned chefs to create a unique ‘four hands menu’ – a collaborative series of dishes with no restrictions on recipes, ingredients or techniques.

Filmed in some of the world’s most spectacular restaurants from the Faroe Islands to the Philippines, ‘Four Hands Menu’ showcases the incredible skills of chefs such as Ekstedt, Poul Andrias Ziska and Esben Holmboe Bang – the head chef at Oslo’s hyper-minimalist Maaemo, which in 2016 became the first restaurant in Norway to receive gastronomy’s highest distinction, three Michelin stars.

The English language series has six episodes and is produced by Swedish production company Mastiff AB.

MTG has over 50 original projects already available or in the pipeline. ‘The Lawyer’; ‘Stella Blómkvist’; ‘ALEX’; ‘Couple Thinkers’; ‘Occupied’; ‘Hassel’; ‘Peppy Pals’; ‘Superswede’; ‘Veni Vidi Vici’; seasons one and two of ‘Swedish Dicks’; and season one of ‘The Great Escape’ have already premiered. Recently commissioned originals include ‘Cold Courage’; season two of ‘The Great Escape’; ‘Those Who Kill’; ‘Rig 45’; ‘Hidden’; ‘Wisting’; ‘Pros and Cons’; ‘Straight Forward’; and ‘Conspiracy of Silence’.

MTG’s originals are increasingly reaching global audiences. During 2017, ‘Veni Vidi Vici’ premiered on premium US streaming service Hulu; ‘Swedish Dicks’ premiered on Pop TV in the US; and ‘Black Lake’ was picked up by BBC Four and AMC Networks-backed Shudder.
