Rubicon’s Nach Launching on Discovery Nordic


The Norwegian scripted label Rubicon has produced the new eight-part drama Nach for Discovery Nordic.

Nach (After Party) follows university dropout Selma (Sarah Francesca Brænne) as she struggles with feelings for her half-sister’s boyfriend, August (Fredrik Stenberg Ditlev-Simonsen). After being thrown out of her house share, she moves in with big sister Elin (Ingrid Giæver) and becomes caught up with her emotions for her sister’s boyfriend. The series is set to launch on Discovery Nordic this spring.

Anne Bjørnstad and Fridrik H. Mar serve as executive producers for Rubicon, while Fredrik Kvåle Dørum serves as executive producer for Discovery Networks Norway. Produced by Stine Blichfeldt, the series was written by Mads Stegger and Ernst De Geer, and the directors are Ernst De Geer and Fanny Ovesen. Nach will be distributed internationally, outside of Discovery Nordic markets, by Banijay Rights.

Lars Blomgren, head of scripted at Banijay, said: “Norwegian drama is well-known for its fantastic quality and Nach lives up to all expectations of the market’s creativity. This nostalgic tale of life blossoming into adulthood is beautifully produced and is a wonderful addition to Banijay’s scripted slate.”

Anne Bjørnstad at Rubicon said: “Nach captures the borrowed time and carefree atmosphere of a party before daybreak when real life hasn’t yet begun. It mirrors the phase when young people make momentous decisions which alter their path forever. This realistic drama portrays this unique time of the human journey and will have viewers hooked.”
