- Original comedy series stars Casper Christensen (‘Klovn’)
- ‘Casper Conquers Norway’ will premiere on Viaplay in autumn 2019
- NENT Group set to premiere 20 original productions every year
After outraging the Danes with one scandalous joke too many, Casper Christensen (‘Klovn’; ‘Danish Dynamite’; ‘Langt fra Las Vegas’) has no option but to run away to Norway. The mockumentary comedy series ‘Casper Conquers Norway’ follows Casper’s 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.
Jakob Mejlhede Andersen, NENT Group EVP 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.”
NENT Group is set to premiere 20 original productions every year. ‘The Truth Will Out’; ‘Four Hands Menu’; ‘Pros and Cons’; ‘Conspiracy of Silence’; ‘Couple Trouble’; ‘Rig 45’; ‘The Lawyer’; ‘Stella Blómkvist’; season one of ‘ALEX’; ‘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’ have already premiered.
