NENT Group Sets Norwegian Supernatural Drama as Next Original


The eight-part Norwegian supernatural drama Seizure is lined up as the next original series from Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group).

In Seizure (Besatt), four young Norwegians are found dead in an empty swimming pool in a bizarre case that brings two detectives face to face both with their own demons and a dark sequence of increasingly inexplicable events. It stars Anders Danielsen Lie (Oslo, August 31) and Anders Baasmo Christiansen (Kon-Tiki).

Miso Film is producing. The series is directed by Rune Denstad Langlo (Welcome to Norway!) and Eirik Svensson (Unge lovende). Seizure is created and written by Megan Gallagher (Borderliner).

Jakob Mejlhede Andersen, Viaplay’s chief content officer: “Just like Viaplay itself, this series is one of a kind. Seizure will grip audiences from the very start with its captivating blend of realism and the supernatural, brought to life by some of Norway’s hottest creative talents. Wisting smashed viewing records and set new standards for NENT Group’s storytelling, and now we’re raising the bar for Nordic streamed entertainment even higher with this truly unique new drama.”
