Swedish Dicks Producer Behind New NENT Group Original

The next original production from Nordic Entertainment Group (NENT Group) is the comedy-drama series The Ambassador, which will be its first original to be filmed in three language versions (one for each Scandinavian market).

The Ambassador will premiere in 2020 exclusively on NENT Group’s Viaplay streaming service across the Nordic region. The series will be produced in Swedish, Norwegian and Danish versions, with a cast from each respective country.

Filming of the Swedish version (Ambassadören), which stars comedian Mikael Tornving (Johan Falk), is already underway. Filming on the Danish and Norwegian versions is starting soon. The ten-episode series is produced by Brain Academy (Conspiracy of Silence, Swedish Dicks), a NENT Studios company, and written by Patrik Ehrnst (Swedish Dicks).

Jakob Mejlhede Andersen, NENT Group’s head of content, said: “This is local storytelling with boundless ambition—one super sharp script made even more relevant by three tones and textures. The Ambassador is NENT Group’s first original series with dedicated Swedish, Norwegian and Danish versions, which shows both the potential of the format and our commitment to creating content that resonates with every audience.”
