  • Combines the best storytelling with top Nordic talents
  • Will premiere exclusively on Viaplay across the Nordic region in spring 2017

The 10-part drama series explores the consequences of struggling Danish film director Karstan Daugaard’s decision to take a job in the adult entertainment industry. Daugaard, played by award winning actor Thomas Bo Larsen (‘The Celebration’; ‘Follow the Money’), is soon confronted with the industry’s darkest aspects and forced into a double life that endangers his whole family.

Jakob Mejlhede, MTG EVP and Head of Programming and Content Development: “This is our edgiest original series so far and a milestone on our journey to become the Nordic region’s leading producer of original content. There’s a huge appetite for complex drama, and ‘Veni Vidi Vici’ will be a captivating experience for both Nordic and international audiences.”

Along with Thomas Bo Larsen, ‘Veni Vidi Vici’ brings together leading Nordic talent such as Rafael Edholm (‘Mörkt vatten’), Livia Millhagen (‘Buss till Italien’) and Michael Segerström (‘Darling’; ‘Spring Tide’). Canadian actor Michael Wincott (‘24: Live Another Day’ and most recently part of the acclaimed HBO drama ‘Westworld’) is also part of the ‘Veni Vidi Vici’ cast.

The series is written by Rafael Edholm and Santiago Gil (‘Love is a Drug’), with Edholm as producer. Production starts in late 2016.

MTG Studios premiered its first original series, ‘Swedish Dicks’, on Viaplay on 2 September 2016 and has recently announced the production of season two of ‘Swedish Dicks’; Nordic noir drama ‘Hassel’ starring Ola Rapace; its first original film, ‘SuperSwede’, about the life of Swedish Formula 1 driver Ronnie Peterson; and its first kids’ series, ‘The Big Experiment’, which will premiere on Viaplay in the Nordics on 1 December 2016.
