Newen Distribution has entered into a co-development agreement with Danish outfit Nimbus Film (The Bridge) for its drama series Northern Lights.
Nimbus will cooperate with Newen on all editorial and financial elements of the 10×43-minute series. Created by Mikkel Bak Sørensen (co-creator of Greyzone) and Christoffer Örnfelt (co-writer on Greyzone), the drama is set against the backdrop of a giant solar storm, which hits the atmosphere of Europe and causes a massive blackout.
Malika Abdellaoui, the managing director of Newen Distribution, said: “We are extremely proud to work side by side with Nimbus Film on creating such unique series as Northern Lights. This series is a high-concept show that mixes hope, fears and human dilemmas, and we strongly believe it will conquer the international audiences.”
Bo Ehrhardt, producer and co-founder of Nimbus Film, said: “Northern Lights talks directly to the audience asking: what would YOU do? By teaming up visionary talent with substantial experienced partners as Newen Distribution, we bring new, relevant and hopefully fascinating stories to existing and new audiences.”
